GMC Girls Golf Dominates Sectional Tournament

10/07/2016

This past Wednesday, in an awesome display of program quality and depth, the "Aves" of Sycamore captured the OHSAA Sectional Tournament title at Walden Ponds Golf Course with a team score of 322. Thus qualifying for the OHSAA District Tournament at Glenview G.C. next Tuesday, October 11th. Also qualifying for the district tournament and close on the Aves heels were the "Thunderhawks" of Lakota East finishing third with a team score of 349. With only four teams making it out of sectional play, the "Comets" of Mason were a near miss by finishing fifth overall as a team, but did qualify two golfers as individuals to district competition. 

During the same time frame, at another OHSAA sectional site (Hamilton Elks Golf Course), two more GMC girls golf programs exhibited excellence.  The Lakota West "Firebirds" and the Colerain " Cardinals" both secured berths in the October 11th OHSAA District Tournament.  The "Firebirds" earned a second place team finish with a total score of 370 strokes in the top four golfers, while the "Cardinals" secured their berth with a team score of 388, earning a fifth place finish. The total number of "Sectional" team qualifiers is based upon the total number of teams competing in each sectional tournament.

Congrats to the following golfers (scores included) for moving on to the OHSAA District Tournament:

Sycamore:  Orchid Wang (78), Heather Bruck (80), Sophie Kramer (79), Chloe Bradley (85), and Becca Thompson (87)

Lakota East:  Grace Honigford (83), Natalie Hamilton (87), Taylor Reynolds (87), Liz Springer (92), and Camryn Eddy (98)
