Caleb Stidham's 84 was helped by Cory Porter's 75 and a round of 77 from Drew Nichols as the Unioto Shermans finished only
behind first-place Logan Elm at Tuesday's D-II Sectional Tournament at Jaycees in Chillicothe to secure a spot in next week's district
tournament. Westfall's team will join the Shermans as the Mustangs fired a 359 to capture the fifth and final spot.
The season comes to an end for Zane Trace; however, Drew Davis shot an 83 to earn the right to play individually at the district level.
At Shawnee State Park, Piketon failed to qualify, but Jake Nutt did card an 83 to qualify individually. All qualifiers will play Monday
at the Marietta Country Club.
SVC champion Huntington and the remainder of the league teams will compete Wednesday at Jaycees in the D-III Sectional
Tournament. Check back tomorrow evening for a recap!
A week after winning the SVC the Huntington golf team shot a 331 to win the Division III Sectional
Championship at Jaycess Golf Course in Chillicothe. Huntington was led by Duane Irvin who shot a 75
which was good enough to earn medalist giving the green and white a clean sweep on the day.
The season comes to an end for Adena, Paint Valley, and Southeastern; however, all of them will continue
to be represented at the district level. Adena's Zach Skaggs (84), Paint Valley's Kaleb Potts (88), and
Southeastern's Ben Davis (88) all qualified individually to play next Tuesday.
A trio of Tri Valley Conference teams - Waterford, Trimble, and Belpre - will join Huntington in the team
competition next week to represent the area.
On Thursday at Upper Landsdowne Golf Course, the
Lady Mustangs of Westfall shot a 455 to earn a third-place
finish - a finish good enough to earn them a spot in next
Wednesday's district tournament.
Individually, Southeastern's Cassie Peters shot the
low-round of the day (an 83) to capture medalist honors.
Zane Trace's Michele Schambs shot a 93 which was just
four shots shy of the final qualifier.
The Scioto Valley Conference
champions shot a 345 on Wednesday to
finish in fifth-place in the Division-III
district tournament at the Pickaway
Country Club. Craig Magill - the
conference player of the year - did
scorch the front-nine with an even-par
round; however, a tough back-nine left
Magill out of state qualification. One
bright spot for the SVC was
Southeastern's Ben Davis. The
Panther freshman shot 81 - just two
shots short of state qualification. PV's
Kaleb Potts shot 92. Adena's Zach
Skaggs also failed to qualify shooting
a 95. No SVC player will advance to
next week's state tournament.
Cassie Peters fought through a
cool, windy day to card a solid
round of 79; unfortunately, that
was two shots off of the number
needed to advance to next
week's state tournament in
Columbus. She was, however,
named the Southeast District
Player of the Year on
Wednesday. ZT's Michelle
Schambs joined her on
first-team while WF's Marcy
honorable-mention. In terms of
league teams, the Lady
Mustangs were unable to
advance as they shot a 483.

Scioto Valley Golf had a tough day at the Marietta Country Club. With 15
teams looking for just two spots in this year's state tournament, Unioto and
Westfall struggled to get anything going. Unioto finished 12th with a team
score of 357 while Westfall finished in 13th just one-stroke behind the
Shermans. This leaves SVC champion Huntington as the league's last hope
as the Huntsmen will attempt to qualify for a spot in the D-III tournament.
ZT's Drew Davis hits his tee-shot from the seventh tee at Running Fox Golf Course during this year's SVC MATCH #4.
Davis, a junior who finished seventh in this year's all-league individual standings, shot a 92 today as he failed to qualify. Piketon's
Jake Nutt - also an all-league selection as he finished 4th - failed to qualify as well as he carded a 97.
