SPRINGFIELD — After shooting even par to claim first place individually at a tournament slightly more than a week ago on the Reid North course, Troy’s Holden Scribner had a comparatively tough round on Tuesday.
This time, though, his fellow Trojans were there to pick him up and help the team advance by claiming the fourth and final district-qualifying spot at the Division I sectional boys golf tournament Tuesday at Reid North, with the team shooting 353 to keep its season going.
Springfield won on Tuesday with 333, Tippecanoe’s boys were second with 347 and Bellbrook was third with 348.
On Sept. 22, the Trojans shot 352 to take third at the Christoff Memorial tournament on the same course, with Scribner shooting 72 to lead the way and no other Trojan shooting better than 92.
The sectional was a different story, though.
Scribner shot 80 — still good for second on the day individually behind Springfield’s Lucas Wells, who shot a 72. But fellow senior Nathan Henderson followed with an 88, sophomore Ryan Dowling shot 89 and senior Connor Stoltz shot 96 to help the Trojans edge out fifth-place Bellefontaine’s 357. Senior Zac Collin added a 98.
For Tippecanoe, Nathan Gagnon and Matt Salmon both shot 83, Nolan Mader shot 88, Austin Post shot 93 and Braydon Bottles shot 95.
Piqua was 12th with 435. Decker Jackson led the way with 103, Matt Herron shot 108, Mason Price shot 111, Jackson Huelskamp shot 113 and Kyler Kommer shot 117.
The district tournament will be played at 9 a.m. Oct. 11 at Beavercreek Golf Club.
