CENTERVILLE — After shooting two high scores in a row, the Troy boys golf team got back on track Wednesday.
The fact that it happened against two old rivals helped.
The Trojans traveled to Yankee Trace for a tri-match against Centerville’s “black” team and Greater Western Ohio Conference American North Division rival Butler Wednesday, with the Elks shooting 160, Troy shooting 166 and Butler shooting 179.
Holden Scribner was medalist on the day for Troy, shooting a 36 to lead the way. Nathan Henderson followed with a 40, Henry Johnston shot 44 and Travis Bertram, Zac Collin and Connor Stoltz all shot 46.
“Holden played very steady, extremely solid and at a high level,” Troy coach Mark Evilsizor said. “He had a great demeanor and just carried himself real well. He’s just playing real well for us right now, and I’m proud of him.”
The match gave the Trojans another look at the Aviators before the two-day Postseason GWOC Tournament on Sept. 27 and 29.
“Butler’s score was kind of inflated because they were playing without Austin Greaser, who was at a national tournament,” Evilsizor said. “We beat them by 13, and he could trim off right about that many himself. This tells us that the Post-GWOC at Beechwood will be a very competitive day.
“These guys played well tonight, and they bounced back from the last couple of disappointing matches. That says a lot about their character.”
Troy (4-2) will play in the Firebird Invitational Tuesday at Beavercreek Golf Club.
