Galion golfers keep on winning

GALION — The Galion Tigers golf team welcomed Buckeye Valley to Sycamore Creek for a Mid-Ohio Athletic Conference clash on Wednesday. Both squads braved the occasional rain, cool temperatures and wild winds to get the match in, but Galion handled the conditions best, winning 165-199.

Galion improves to 9-0 overall and within the MOAC with the victory.

Jack McElligott fired a 39 to lead the Tigers. Spencer Keller was right behind McElligott, recording a 40. Matthew McMullen and Mitch Dyer turned in 43s. Kaleb Harsh contributed a 48 on the day and Matt Kingseed shot a 49.

“It was a difficult night to play golf. The off-and-on rain we can deal with, but the cool temperatures and wind had it’s effect on my guys,” said Galion coach Bryce Lehman. “I thought we handled it pretty well though, and we need to play some matches in these conditions to help us prepare for sectionals at Sawmill Creek on Lake Erie. The wind always blows up there!”

Galion hopes to continue its undefeated march today at Mill Creek Golf Club in Ostrander vs. North Union. The Tigers will play in the Ontario Golf Invite at Twin Lakes on Friday. On Saturday, they travel to Eagle Creek for the Norwalk Invitational.
