GREEN TOWNSHIP – For the second year in a row, Clinton-Massie drove, pitched and putted its way through the South Central Ohio League boys golf schedule without a loss.
The Falcons capped an unbeaten SCOL season Monday by winning the league championship at Snow Hill Country Club.
“We didn’t have our best stuff,” CM coach Brian Mudd said. “But we found a way to win.”
Clinton-Massie was followed in the tournament standings by Miami Trace, Wilmington, Washington, East Clinton, Hillsboro, McClain and Chillicothe.
The overall final standings had the Falcons at 28-0, Wilmington at 22-6, Miami Trace at 20-8, Washington at 16-12, Hillsboro at 12-16, East Clinton at 9-19, McClain at 4-24 and Chillicothe at 0-28.
The teams started in the early afternoon Monday in windy, rainy conditions. Plus, as Mudd said, “it was about 20 degree temperature change from anything we’d played in all year.”
The Falcons had a team score of 337.
“This is a tough course,” said Mudd. “For the conditions, we played OK. We didn’t play at the top of our game. But we’re not going to complain when you win a league title and go undefeated for the second year in a row.”
Keith Mineer was the Clinton-Massie medalist Monday with a 78. Thomas Carter shot an 84, Caleb Enright had an 87, Max Carnevale 88, Drew Kienle 92.
