Overmyer shot an 83, Quentin Weddell and Noah Frederick both carded 84s. Grayson Temple (89) and Travis Neumeister (98) also played for Van Buren.

The Trojans got 81s from Jordan Goeb and Justin Hartman on their way to shooting 332 as a team. Grant Lane and Harry Hall both added 85s to complete the team scoring for FHS. Nick Holman (91) and Will Templin (94) also played for the Trojans.

As far as TRAC teams scored, host St. Francis was second in the league portion of the event with a 334 followed by Toledo St. John’s (336), Oregon Clay (343), Toledo Whitmer (345), Toledo Central Catholic (409) and Fremont Ross (411).

Lexington captured the team title with a 309-317 margin over Sylvania Northview.

Oregon Clay’s Palmer Yenrick was the tournament medalist with a 68.

Findlay is back in action today in another TRAC match at Stone Ridge Golf Club in Bowling Green while Van Buren heads to the Columbus Country Club for the Gahanna Columbus Academy Invitational.
