TROY — Troy’s Holden Scribner had an outstanding week last week for the Trojan boys golf team, shooting 37s three straight matches.
The junior began this week even better.
Scribner shot a 2-under 32 Monday afternoon at Troy Country Club, leading the Trojans to a 152-165 victory over visiting Northmont in Troy’s low nine-hole round of the season.
The 32 by Scribner was also the second-lowest individual performance during coach Mark Evilsizor’s tenure with the team, topped only by a 31 by Troy Moore. It was also the fifth time Scribner had either won or tied for medalist honors in Troy’s (4-1) five dual matches this season.
“He was extremely impressive today,” Evilsizor said of Scribner. “He went 2-under over the last four holes, didn’t have a bogey on the day. He just had a tremendous day.”
Nate Uhlenbrock was close behind with a 2-over 36, Zac Collin and Nathan Henderson both shot 42s, Travis Bertram added a 44 and Connor Stoltz shot a 49.
“Nate Uhlenbrock posted another solid score, and this was Nathan Henderson’s best round of the year,” Evilsizor said. “Overall, it was an extremely solid round.”

Kenton Ridge 0
SPRINGFIELD — Neither the Bethel boys soccer team nor Kenton Ridge could find a way to put one home Monday night, with the Bees and Cougars battling to a 0-0 draw.
“This was a tough game, as it always seems to be anytime we go to play at Kenton Ridge,” Bethel coach Bob Hamlin said. “I thought we passed the ball well in the middle of the field, but we just had problems in the final third to either make the correct pass or the proper run into space. We got 21 shots off and 16 were on goal — but just a few were dangerous.
“Early in the game, we left a couple on the doorstep that you have to put away that might open up the game.”
Bethel’s Alex van Haaren made six saves on the night to post his second shutout of the year and preserve the tie.
Bethe travels to Athletes in Action Saturday to take on Tree of Life.

CENTERVILLE — Two games into the season, and the Troy girls soccer team already faced arguably the best team it will see all year.
The Trojans (1-1) traveled to Centerville Monday night to take on the unbeaten Elks — who also knocked the Trojans out of last year’s postseason in the sectional title game. In the end, the Elks proved to be too much in a 6-0 loss.
Troy travels to Stebbins Wednesday before returning home to take on West Carrollton Saturday.
Other scores: Tippecanoe at Northmont was postponed by lightning and rescheduled at 6 p.m. Oct. 2. Piqua led Bethel 3-0 when the game was suspended due to lightning and to be finished at a later date.
COVINGTON — The Covington volleyball team hosted its home opener Monday night, facing its third straight perennial tournament powerhouse to open the season in Anna. In the end, the Rockets swept the Buccaneers (0-3) 25-12, 25-7, 25-8.
“They used a balanced attack, and we committed too many unforced errors to deserve a win,” Covington coach Lonnie Cain said. “We were very inefficient from the service line, which was disappointing, and the defense was a step too slow all evening.
“We can turn things around — but it will take more desire and effort on the court.”
BRADFORD — Bradford dropped a close first set to visiting Cedarville Monday night, but the Indians finished off a sweep from there, defeating the Railroaders 25-22, 25-8, 25-14.
Bianca Keener had five kills, an ace and a block, Cassie Mead had two kills and an ace and Macie Reck had 16 digs for Bradford (0-7), which travels to Arcanum Thursday.
