Buckeye Trail golfers advance

SUGARCREEK – Buckeye Trail is the lone area team that was able to extend its golf season to next week in Division III Tuesday afternoon.

The Division III sectional tournament was held at Willandale Golf Club with the top three teams advancing to the district, which is set for next week at Cumberland Trail.

The Warriors, who won the OVAC Class 3A title two weeks ago, fired a 341, which was good enough for second place to only Garaway, which finished with a 326.

The Warriors were led by Justin Wilson, who was one of four tournament medalists with a round of 77. Jessi Roe checked in with an 83, while Jed Burga posted a 87 and Austin Warehime was the fourth Warrior with a 94.

Other individuals – not on a qualifying team – to punch a ticket to the district were Fort Frye’s Shon Smith (77), Strasburg’s Austin Eckhardt (77) and Steubenville Central’s Austin Meronoff.
