WEST HARRISON – A difference of just four strokes separated host East Central and Greensburg in golf action. The Trojans finished with a team total 170 to hold off Greensburg’s 174.
“Despite the loss, I came away optimistic with a score of 174 on the very challenging Grand Oak golf course. It was a major improvement for us in terms of our performance on unfamiliar, ‘target’ golf courses,” Coach Mize said. “I thought the guys at the top of the lineup showed some resolve as they kept big numbers off the card. Unfortunately, East Central just played a little better than us.”
East Central’s Devin McFarland was the meet medalist with a 39.
