Thanks for a great golf season
I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the many businesses, groups and individuals that made this past high school golf season a huge success!
This was an incredible 2017 season with a very young team. The golf team won the MOAC regular season championship by going undefeated at 14-0 won the MOAC tournament at Apple Valley to claim the undisputed title. This group of young men — Jack McElligott, Matthew McMullen, Spencer Keller, Mitch Dyer, Matt Kingseed, and Kaleb Harsh — achieved a season worthy of nothing but praise.
They won the sectional tournament at Sawmill Creek in Huron, finished second at the district tournament at Red Hawk Run in Findlay, and finished the season with a sixth place finish at the OHSAA State Tournament at NorthStar Golf Club in Sunbury.
This type of season wouldnot have been possible without the help from the following: Phil’s Deli; Maury Sheffer; Ty and Caryl Huggins; Bruce and Elizabeth Angell; First Federal Bank of Ohio; Flick Packaging; Fox Plumbing and Heating; Erin Miller (Images by Erin), The Galion Inquirer and Crossroads Original Designs.
Thank you also to the Galion High School Athletic Department (Kyle Baughn) for their support this past season and for allowing this group of players to be victorious on multiple occasions. I would also like to thank Sycamore Creek Golf Course and the Carter family for the use of their facilitym along with golf course Superintendent Jimmy Benton and his staff for the condition of the course and their upkeep of the finest course in the MOAC.
Lastly, I would like to thank the parents, grandparents and other family members for supporting their player. We always had huge groups of people following our team at every match and tournament, which was greatly appreciated along with all of the snacks and drinks provided for the matches.
