BOYS GOLF: Ironmen take runner-up at Greenfield Invitational

Sports Editor

GREENFIELD - The Jackson Ironmen golf team is making a big splash early in the 2018 season.

The Ironmen won the Vinton County Invitational on Monday at Franklin Valley Golf Course and finished as the runner-up on Tuesday at the Greenfield-McClain Invitational at Buckeye Hills Golf Course.

The tournament was shortened to nine holes due to threatening weather in the forecast, as the Ironmen shot 188 to finish 17 strokes behind West Union, who won with an overall score of 171.

"We did not play our best but it was a good chance to see the course before we begin league play," said Jackson head coach Kevin Bowman. "Everyone felt they could have knocked four or five strokes off their scores but the rough was thick and a couple of the fairways were narrow."

Trase Speakman led the charge for Jackson, as he shot a 44, while Ethan Mercer shot a 45. Cooper Donaldson shot 49 and Aidan Massie added a 50 to round out the scoring for the Ironmen. In addition, Caleb Rose fired a 65 for Jackson.

Greenfield-McClain finished third with a score of 191, as Trevor Newkirk shot a 35 and was match medalist.

Washington Court House (199) and West Union Reserve (199) tied for fourth, while Hillsboro (201) was sixth, followed by Miami Trace (203), Fairfield Leesburg (207), Whiteoak (222) and Vinton County (225).

The Vikings finished in 10th-place in the team standings with Noah Nobles shooting a 46 to lead the way and Brock Hamon added a 53. Owen Salyer and Jordan Riegel shot 61 and 65, respectively to round out the scoring for Vinton County and Eli Radabaugh carded a 67.
