TROY — Troy’s top three boys golfers gave the Trojans the same kind of round they have been all season Tuesday.
The fourth score? Was finally where coach Mark Evilsizor wanted to see it.
The end result was a 153-167 victory for Troy over visiting Northmont at Miami Shores Tuesday in a makeup from last week’s rainout.
“We finally got that fourth score as low as the third, and that’s obviously what we’ve been looking for so far this season,” Evilsizor said. “The kids played well today. The course played fair, and they took advantage of it. They played smarter today.”
Senior Troy Moore led the way once more, shooting a 2-under 34 for medalist honors. Freshman Holden Scribner followed with a 1-over 37 and Nate Uhlenbrock and Tyler Lambert both shot 41 to round out the scoring. Luke Schroeder added a 43 and Alex Gigandet added a 44.
“Troy was just one fire,” Evilsizor said. “He had three birdies in a row and four for the round, and 37 is another solid score for Holden. Nate shot about his average so far this year, and I think Tyler looked a little more at ease now that he’s played some more golf this year.
“If we can keep getting scores like that out of Troy and Holden, it’s going to keep us in a lot of matches.”
Troy returns to Turtle Creek Golf Course Thursday to take on Greenville in the Greater Western Ohio Conference North Division opener.
