FINDLAY — Galion’s Jack McElligott golf season ended Thursday at the Division II district golf tournament at Red Hawk Run Golf Course in Findlay.

The sophomore was the Tigers’ most consistent golfer this season. On the par-72 Red Hawk Run layout, McElligott shot a 44 on the front nine and a 41 on the back. His 85 was 13-shots over par.

Shelby’s Brock Kehres was the medalist at Red Hawk Run, with a 1-over par 73,
