ADAMS TOWNSHIP — Clinton-Massie out-dueled Wilmington Thursday in the season opening Southern Buckeye Athletic & Academic Conference American Division event at Majestic Springs Golf Course.
Led by medalist Max Carnevale, the Falcons shot 156 while the Hurricane came in with a 158.
The two Clinton County entrants outdistanced the field as third place Western Brown had a 171.
In fact, Massie and Wilmington dominated to the point of having 12 of the top 18 scores, which included eight of the top 10.
Carnevale had a 37 while teammate Cam Collett came in with a 38. Keith Mineer shot a 40 and Alex Burnham had a 41. Playing but not scoring for the Falcons were two solid outings — Ryan Riggers (42) and Nick Young (44).
For Wilmington, Jack Murphy had 38 and Dylan Combs shot 39 to top the list.
Zach Zeckser shot a 40 and Hunter DeWeese had a 41. Cam Smart (43) and Zack Delaney (45) played well but did not score for WHS.
“Overall, I was very pleased with the efforts of my four, five and six guys today,” said WHS coach Phil Gilmore. “Jack played nicely as well.
“We have them (Clinton-Massie) six more times this year and this is a good measuring stick for what we need team-wise the rest of the year.”
