SYRACUSE – It certainly wasn’t an ideal day to golf, but Plymouth used the chance to create a banner moment in claiming the team title at the Wawasee Golf Invitational Saturday at a soggy South Shore Golf Club.
The Pilgrims posted a fantastic 308, considering the conditions which got worse as the day wore on, with all four of its scores in the 70s. Micah Calhoun led the way for Plymouth at 75, followed by Grant Clady at 76, Hudson Yoder at 78 and John Gerard at 79.
No other team had all four golfers in the 70s, but Homestead was close with its 314. The Spartans went 77-78-79-80 led by Matthew Hope to finish second in the team standings, followed by Warsaw in third at 316, Chesterton fourth at 318 and NorthWood fifth at 325.
Warsaw had Sam Yeager fire a 76 to lead the Tigers, Luke Delp two back at 78. Tommy Meier came in at 80 and Tim Rata shot an 82. Michael Jensen was working the varsity on the front side, but had to retire his round before he was able to complete.
NorthWood had Sean Hogan turn in the medalist round of 73, starting his day with a bogey and double bogey, but had four birdies and one eagle to level his top round.
Randy Kauffman had an 83, Caleb Lung 84 and Jacob Falk 85 for the Panthers.
Wawasee was well back of the group, shooting a 371. Zach Leedy was the top scorer for the Warriors with an 82 and Dillon Drake not far back at 85. Evan Dippon carded a 100 and Luke Weisser shot 104.
Whitko’s four shot a 418, Tim Gensch leading the Wildcats with a 96, followed by Kaleb Busz and Cade Bechtold at 105 and Cole Cmar at 112.
