CINCINNATI –The Greenville boys varsity golf team season came to a close Tuesday playing in the OHSAA Division 1 Southwest District tournament a first for the Green Wave in 17 years dating back to 2002.
“This was a great group to work with,” said Greenville coach Brian Stickel. “One of the best I’ve had in quite a while. Not Just the varsity but the JV’s too. Really great kids with good attitudes.”
The Green Wave golf team traveled to Cincinnati’s Glenview Golf Course for district play.
“Tough day today,” Stickel said. “The kids were a little disappointed in the way they played but still enjoyed the day. This was a great learning experience, on a very tough and long course.”
The team shot a 370 led by Warren Hartzell’s 85, Evan Saylor carding an 85, Alex Kolb coming in with a 95, Jack Marchal shooting a 98 and Ash Williams rounding out the day with a 99.
“This is a great building block for us, having two juniors and three sophomores playing,” Stickel said. “The future looks bright, however, people are going to expect us to do well next year. With that comes a little more pressure, so we are going to have to work harder next spring and summer.”
