Warrior golfers win Division 1 Sectional

FPS staff report

The depth of the Carrollton boys golf team came through once again for the Warriors.

Led by Brady McClure, Justin Lovett and Dan Tobin, the Carrollton golf team won the Division I sectional tournament last Monday at the River Greens Golf Course to advance to the District tournament, which was to be played this past Tuesday at the Apple Valley Golf Course near Mt. Vernon.

This is the first time in the history of Carrollton boys golf that teams have gone to the District Tournament in back-to-back years.

“They (McClure, Lovett and Tobin) played well all the way through,” said Head Coach Gary Cogan. “This goes to show the tremendous depth we have on this team when your 3,4, and 5 guys can come through like that when you need them to. This was just a total team effort.”

McClure, Lovett and Tobin each shot a 78 to pace the Warriors. Cale Pozderac followed with an 80 and Zach Riggins an 84.

Carrollton shot a 314, one stroke ahead of second place Marietta, who shot a 315.

Zanesville and Warren were third and fourth, respectively, with a 327. Dover was fifth with a 330 and Cambridge sixth with a 335.

The top three teams and top three individuals advanced to the District Tournament.

In a regular season match with Coshocton on Sept. 29 at River Greens, the Warriors just slipped past the Redskins 163-165.

“We didn’t play our best golf of the year as a team, but with Dan (Tobin) stepping up and shooting a 38, that allowed us to win by two strokes,” noted Cogan.

Tobin led the Warriors with a 38, while Riggins shot a 40, Pozderac a 42, McClure a 43, Tyler Shuman a 45 and Lovett a 50.
