Lakota East Boys Golf Finishes OHSAA State Runnerup

10/23/2018

The Lakota East Thunderhawks boy's golf team concluded their 4th trip to the OHSAA State Championships (3RD consecutive) this past weekend with their best finish-ever! East tied for runner-up with St. Xavier at 650. The Hawks followed up their opening 321 with a 329. St. X shot 323-327. Mason was fourth at 655.

East entered Saturday in second place five shots behind eventual champion Dublin Jerome. But the Celtics did what they often do on state-tournament championship day. They went even lower to shoot 316-309—625 for the two days and win their second straight state title and eighth in school history.

Kyle Schmidt is East’s only senior. He shot 76-81—157 to tie for ninth and earn second-team all-state honors. Freshman Joe Wilson finished at 80-83—163, juniors Peyton Houston (82-83) and Brock Aten (83-82) were at 165, and freshman Ty Sylla finished at 88-84—172.

With most of its lineup back next year, East will have a chance at a fourth straight trip to state.
