NEW WASHINGTON — On Tuesday, the golfers representing Galion High School traveled to Cranberry Hills Golf Course to take on the field at the annual Buckeye Central Invitational.
Playing in their first action of the fall season, the Tigers captured the crown as invitational champions, with a team score of 321. Buckeye Central was second at 340. Other scores on the day: 3. Cardington- 366; 4. Wynford- 368; 5. River Valley- 371; 6. Seneca East- 372; 7. Mohawk- 376; 8. Colonel Crawford- 424 and 9. Crestline- 457.

“It was a great opportunity to get the season started with some other local schools and one of our league opponents,” claims Galion head coach Bryce Lehman. “We played pretty decent on the first nine holes, even though we had some short putts that were missed. We shot a 164 on the first-nine. Our back-nine score of 157 was spectacular. Every one of my guys shot better on the second-nine, with three scores in the 30s.”
