The Greensburg boys golf team made another appearance at the regional level Thursday, competing at Champions Pointe Golf Course in Henryville.
The Pirates placed 15th out of 18 competing teams at the Providence Regional Tournament, carding a 338. Columbus North won the regional title with a score of 298.
“Despite not ending on a high note, we have a lot to be happy about with this season,” said Greensburg head coach Bryce Mize. “We played some great golf all year long, and we have a lot to look forward to next season. This year indicated another stepping stone that I believe this team can build upon.”
Senior Sam Marsh finished his Pirate career with an 87, including a 39 on the front nine. Marsh, a three-time all-conference player and a regional qualifier, made eight holes for par and two more for birdie.
“Obviously, we're going to miss Sam,” said Mize. “He has been a consistent score for our team for four years now, and that's going to be hard to replace. Perhaps what we will miss even more is his leadership. He was a great asset to this team.”
Sophomore Keegan McCullough led the Pirates with an 81, including a 35 on the back nine. McCullough tallied nine shots for par and made three more for birdie, including three on the back. Reid Domingo shot an 86 (six for par, one birde), Maverick Jones carded an 88 (eight for par) and Michael Blankman shot a 104 (one for par).
“We have a lot to work on this offseason if we hope to take that next step, but I know we have the drive to get there,” said Mize. “All in all, it was a great season filled with many accomplishments.”
