CELINA — Wapakoneta's Caleb Acheson never appeared to be in control on any of the four sudden death playoff holes to decide second place at the Celina Bulldog Invitational at Fox's Den on Friday.
He was the last of the four players standing four playoff holes later thanks to his stellar short game and scrambling ability, however.
ST. MARYS — Greenville downed the St. Marys girls tennis team 5-0 on Friday morning.
"I told the girls that top to bottom this is probably the best team we'd face this year," St. Marys head coach Brice Brenneman said. "I knew they were good, but they were even a little better than I thought."
Greenville's Sophia Navas-Davis defeated St. Marys' Katie Peterson, 6-2, 6-0 at first singles.
Michelle Borgerding beat St. Marys' Emily Brown at second singles, 6-2, 6-1.
MINSTER — The New Bremen boys golf team picked up a Midwest Athletic Conference win over Delphos St. John's on Thursday morning at Arrowhead Golf Club.
Delphos St. John's Nick Kayser fired a two-under par 34 for medalist honors.
New Bremen's Darin Bergman led the way for New Bremen with a 38.
Alex Britton had a 40, Tyler Hagen shot a 44 and Travis Bertelsen had a 46 for the Cardinals.
New Bremen will host Russia on Friday at 10:30 a.m. at Arrowhead, with both the varsity and JV competing.
MINSTER — Carter Bowman wasn’t thrilled with a tie, even if it was for the best score on the course on Wednesday.
Bowman finished tied for medalist at the Auglaize County Invitational at Arrowhead Golf Club, but the St. Marys sophomore standout golfer was still kicking himself about how he finished down the stretch.
“It’s medalist, but it could’ve been a whole lot better,” Bowman said.
MINSTER — The Minster boys golf team distanced itself from the rest of the 14-team field to capture the Cardinal Invitational in the comfort of its home course Arrowhead Golf Club on Tuesday.
Minster sophomore Xavier Francis fired a two-over par 74, Freddie Purdy and John Burke each had 78s, and Josh Tumbusch shot an 82 for the Minster team total of 312.
Minster was 10 shots clear of second-place Russia, which shot a 322 on a day of early rain followed by clear, cool conditions.
