By Chad Clinger -

GALION — On Wednesday, Aug. 21, Galion’s girls golf team bested Crestview 251-269 at Sycamore Creek. It was the team’s first win of the season. And because Galion has not had a girls golf team the past two years, it was their first win since 2015.

Freshman Julia Conner took medalist honors with the teams’ lowest score of the season, carding a nine-hole 58. Freshman Izzie Willacker followed with a 60 and sophomore Halle Kiss at 63 to give the Lady Tigers the top-three places in the match. Freshman Ellexia Ratcliff shot a 74 to round-out the scoring for the home team.

Also in action on Wednesday were: Abby Crager- 76; Ruth Ebner- 77; Neavia Cansler- 78 and Missy VonHoupe- 78.

The Tiger ladies will be off until Wednesday, Aug. 28 when they play host to a trio of Mid-Ohio Athletic Conference foes: Shelby, Ontario and Clear Fork Lady Colts at 4 p.m.
