ST. MARYS — Carter Bowman had another putt to tie the St. Marys golf program’s nine-hole record and the Roughrider boys golf team had little trouble disposing of the Defiance Bulldogs 163-178 in Western Buckeye League golf action at Northmoor on Monday evening.
Bowman fired a medalist three-under par on the par 36 course. Twice this season the Roughrider junior has shot 33s with a putt on his ninth hole to tie the school record 32 shared by Mark Bergman and Drew Paulus on the par 35 front nine at Northmoor.
ST. MARYS — For senior Roughrider Amanda Dues, working hard is easy when it pays off.
Dues is a member of both the track and cross country team for Memorial High School, and she is a dedicated runner. She started track in junior high, and traded volleyball for cross country in high school. Though Dues had heard it was a tough sport, she started the summer workouts with an optimistic outlook.
It turned out the sport was intense, with their coach requiring runners to finish a certain distance in a certain amount of time.
