Pirate golfers advance to regional

The Greensburg boys golf team extended its season Friday night at the Sectional 27 sectional tournament at the Greensburg Country Club.

One year after missing the cut with a fourth-place finish, the Pirates placed third with a team score of 320. Greensburg had fallen short last year by two strokes to third-place North Decatur.

Columbus North won the team sectional title with a score of 288, while Columbus East was runner-up with a 308.

Greensburg sophomore Keegan McCullough had already wrapped up a trip to regionals yesterday before the team advancement was confirmed. McCullough carded a 72, good enough for third overall and the top scorer if Greensburg did not quality.

Taking the individual sectional blue ribbon again was Columbus North’s Michael VanDeventer, shooting a 69.

Greensburg head coach Bryce Mize described McCullough’s outing, in which he made five straight pars one the tail end of the front nine.

“He started a little shaky shaky on both nines,” said Mize. “However, he made three birdies on the way to finishing 1-under on the back.”

Senior Sam Marsh shot a 40 on the front and a 38 on the back to finish with a 78. Reid Domingo shot an 82 (44-38), Maverick Jones carded a 90 (49-41) and Michael Blankman totaled an 88 (46-42).

Greensburg’s season record is 16-3, in duals and match play (not invitationals).

Mize noted the strides the program took the past two years, when the team hovered around the .500 mark.

“These guys are improving and the future looks pretty good, too,” said Mize. “Nice to play well this year. We’ll miss Sam a lot this year. He’s definitely been our MVP the last three years.”

North Decatur sophomore Dayne Lecher missed the regional cut by just one stroke, shooting an 80. The Chargers placed sixth overall with a 352. Lecher birdied on the 14th and 17th holes, making his back nine total just a 39. Senior David Bokelman carded an 87. Blake Fehrman shot a 92 and Brennan Coy carded a 93. Trevor Crites finished with a 94.
