On Monday Versailles competed in the rain-shortened Fairborn Skyhawk Invitational at Twin Base Golf Club. Because the invitational was shortened because of rain, scores were determined by the total over par for the low four players on each team for 14 holes.
Versailles finished third in the seven-team invitational with a 37-over par. Beavercreek won the tournament with a 27-over par, and Centerville finished second at 31-over par. Chaminade Julienne finished fourth with a 39-over par, Miami Valley was fifth with a 41-over par, Springfield was sixth with a 43-over par, and Fairborn finished seventh with a 57-over par.
Nicholas Litten-Stonebraker, Jacob Watren, Griffen Riegle, Kyle Cotner, Michael Hemmelgarn and Issac Ruhenkamp competed for Versailles at the Skyhawk Invitational.
