Golf: Dull finishes 3rd in Ohio Jr. tourney

MARION — Lakota sophomore Kyleigh Dull finished third in her age group and fourth overall after carding a 75 on Tuesday in the second round of the Ohio Junior Girls Golf Championship at the Marion Country Club.

Dull finished with a 74-75–149 total in the two-day event. She actually tied Helena’s Sydney Leyerle (74-75–149) and Canton’s Madison Reemsnyder (78-71–149) for first in the 14-15 age division, but was relagated to third in the final rankings by a scorecard playoff.

Galena’s Leila Raines fired a 68 on Tuesday, posted a 146 total and overcame an 8-stroke deficit to not only win the 16-18 division, but the 2018 Ohio Junior Girls Golf Championship as well. Raines tied first-round leader Emily Hummer (70-76–146) of Columbus, then won a two-hole playoff for the title.

Grace Miller, who will be a sophomore at Kalida High School, posted a 93-98–191 total and finished 75th overall.

Sophia Canale of Fairlawn recorded the first hole-in-one in the 42-year history of the OJGGC when she sunk her tee shot on the 128-yard 12th hole.

Foltz shoots 74

POWELL — Van Buren’s Hunter Foltz carded a 74 on Tuesday and found himself in the middle of middle of the pack after Tuesday’s first round of the Ohio Amateur Golf Championship being held at the Wedgewood Golf and Country Club in Powell.

Foltz, starting on the 10th tee, went out in 38 with bogies on Nos. 16, 17 and 18. He played the front nine in even par and is tied for 49th in the field.

Four golfers, including Bowling Green’s Trey Walker, shot 68 and were tied atop the leaderboard.

Van Buren’s Brandon Wehrle also qualified for the Ohio Amateur. He teed off in the final group of the day, but his score had not yet been posted on the OGA’s website as of late Tuesday and calls to the course were not answered.
