Local golfers hit the links for sectional play

Over the past few weeks, golfers from every school in the area took to courses throughout southwest Ohio in an attempt to move on in the postseason, and three schools will be represented in District play.

Bethel’s Mitchell McElfresh shot a 41 on the front nine of Sharon Woods Golf Course and a 38 on the back, giving him a nine-over par 79 for the day. That was the second-best score among non-qualifiers, two strokes behind Maderia’s Ethan Snyder.

Meanwhile, at Shawnee State Park, Eastern’s Blake Rigdon and Jordon Johnson each carded 95s to advance to districts. The pair shot the third-lowest score of non-qualifying individuals, one stroke ahead of Whiteoak’s Charles Skinner. They paced their squad to a 10th-place finish out of 16 teams.

Ripley’s Scottie Ott shot an 83 at Walden Ponds last month to qualify for District play. Ott’s 83 tied him for the lowest score of non-qualifying schools with Middletown Christian’s John Leisinger. In that same draw, Georgetown finished eighth out of 15 teams, carding a total of 425 throughout the event. Freshman Lance Sininger led the G-Men, shooting a 95 and finishing 24th overall out of 62 individuals.

All three move on to the Southwest District Golf Tournament, held Thursday, October 15 at Weatherwax Golf Course. The results were not available before press time.

Bayley Johnson also participated in sectional play, shooting a 106 at the Girls’ Division II match at Xenia WGC Golf Course. Johnson finished 37th in the individual standings out of 69 golfers.

Western Brown sent four golfers to Glenview Golf Course earlier this week. The team did not perform as well as it had hoped, as Jordan Lind’s 111 was the lowest score carded by a Bronco. Devin Moriarty and Will Stratton each shot 115 while Tyler Large carded a 116 on the par-72 course. Lakota East, Milford, Moeller and Mason moved on to District play.
