Tigers, Barons take home SBC Golf titles

The Southern Buckeye Conference wrapped up the 2015 golf campaign with the league’s championship rounds this past weekend.

The National Division hosted the final round at Cedar Trace last Saturday. Bethel’s Mitchell McElfresh entered the final 18 holes as the individual leader and would win that title with a two-over par 73 in the final round. McElfresh finished 19 strokes ahead of Blanchester’s Alec Richardson.

Georgetown’s Lance Sininger finished third, one stroke behind Richardson. All three earned first-team all league honors, as did McElfresh’s teammate Blake Combs, who shot a 281 for the tournament to tie for sixth overall.

Bethel won the National Division title over CNE by 55 strokes. McElfresh and Bethel coach Brett Harris took player and coach of the year honors, respectively.

Meanwhile, in the American Division, Amelia’s Evan Daniel carded an eight-over par 70 at Deer Track to win the individual title by 15 strokes. Goshen’s Austin Allen finished second, followed by Western Brown’s Miranda Wallace.

Wallace earned first-team honors for her perfomance. Devin Moriarty earned second-team honors, shooting a 277 for the tournament and finishing in a tie for eighth place.

Daniel was named the league’s player of the year while Barons coach Terry Helton took home coach of the year honors.

Western Brown coach Dave Bickett said although the team’s season didn’t pan out the way he had hoped, he was still proud of the team.

“Not the ending we were hoping for but I am very proud of this team,” Bickett said. “They are a bunch of blue-collar workers who during the season just rolled up their sleeves and did all kinds of yard work. Hopefully they will preform well in the sectionals.

All three teams now move on to sectional play. Bethel will be at Sharon Woods Golf Course on Thursday, October 1. Western Brown begins sectional play Tuesday, October 6 at Glenview Golf Course while Georgetown tees off Tuesday, September 29 at Walden Pond Golf Club.

Bethel’s Mitchell McElfresh shot a two-over par 73 in the final round of the SBC tournament to lead his team to the National Division title.
