Wilmington’s Tommy Halloran will continue his golf season next week in the Div. I Southwest District golf tournament.

The WHS boys and girls golf teams were in action Monday in Division I sectional tournaments — the boys at The Golf Club at Yankee Trace and the girls at the Hamilton Elks.

The Wilmington girls were 10th in the team standings.

Katie Murphy posted the low score for WHS with a 109 (53-56).

Ke’Asia Robinson had a 119 (57-62) while Sophie Huffman finished with a 123 (61-62). Abby Earley had a 140 (64-76) and Reagen Reece had 144 (67-77).

“I am so proud of the improvement shown by all of these ladies this season,” WHS girls golf coach Chad Fields said. “Hamilton Elks is a very challenging course. Add wind into the equation and it just made for a tough afternoon. Although we didn’t accomplish our team goal of making it to the district tournament, this day was a great experience for our younger golfers. They now know what it takes to compete at a very high level.

“At the beginning of the season we set out to be competitive and I think we did just that. Our three seniors Katie Murphy, Ke’Asia Robinson, and Sophie Huffman will surely be missed.”

Kylee Heidemann of Mercy McAuley was tournament medalist with a 73.

The Wilmington boys were sixth in the final team standings in their sectional.

Halloran had a 9-over 81 (42-39) and was tied as the low individual not on a qualifying team. Mason Turner of Miamisburg also had an 81.

Gavin Augenstein of tournament champion Springboro was the medalist with a 72.

Dylan Cole had an 88 (47-41) for Wilmington and Devon Snyder came in at 95 (44-51). Braydon Black shot a 97 (49-48) while Phil Fulton carded a 102 (48-54).

The WHS golf teams will official conclude their 2022 seasons Wednesday at the Elks 797 Golf Course with both teams participating in a scramble, coach Fields said.
