BOYS GOLF: Acheson advances to districts
BOWLING GREEN â€” Wapakoneta Redskins junior Caleb Achesonâ€™s golf season is not over yet.
Acheson fired a 76 in the Division I sectional boys golf tournament Tuesday at Stone Ridge Golf Club in Bowling Green and qualified for the district tournament Thursday, Oct. 13 at Red Hawk in Findlay.
After carding a 41 on the front nine, Acheson rebounded to cover the back nine in a 1-under 35 with four birdies.
â€śGetting birdies today was hard to come by because the greens were very fast and they had a lot of movement,â€ť Wapak coach Ken Wayman said. â€śIn other words, Calebâ€™s four birdies were impressive. Caleb was even-keel throughout the round and thatâ€™s why he played as well as he did. He didnâ€™t try to press the issue when he shot 41 the first nine holes.â€ť
The top five teams from the sectional tournament and the top five individuals not on a qualifying team advance to districts.
Achesonâ€™s 76 tied Maumeeâ€™s Mitchell Kantak for low score among individuals not on qualifying teams. As a team, the Redskins finished 17th out of 19 teams.
â€śIt wasnâ€™t our greatest result but the caliber of golf we played against was impressive,â€ť Wayman said. â€śFor the most part, the teams that were there had four very good scores to record. Unfortunately for us, we had two scores that were good. We need to find a way in the next few years to record four solid scores.â€ť
Freshman Drew Wayman shot an 86. Junior Aaron Johnson turned in a 100. Sophomore Bobby Crow posted a 104. And junior Josh Apple 108.
â€śThe good news we donâ€™t have any seniors on this team,â€ť Ken Wayman said. â€śThe guys really work hard for me and if they continue to work hard in the offseason, good things will come for the Wapakoneta golf team.â€ť
