TIFFIN — Galion’s girls golf team is still trying to add consistency to their game, and coach Mark Barrier says when they learn to concentrate a little better on the task at hand, they’ll become better golfers.

That being said, the Tigers had a bit of a rough go Wednesday in Tiffin at the Seneca Hills Invite.

“Consistency is our key to success…we didn’t have our heads in the game,” Barrier said after his team finished 11th in the 11-team tournament.”

The Tigers’ Shae Ness penciled in the best score for the team on the day, shooting a 114. Abby Barre was three strokes behind Ness with a 117. Greer Gledhill shot 120, Alexis Chaplin 130 and Brooklyn Potter finished up the Tiger scoring with a 154.

“(It was) not a very good showing today,” Barrier said. “We will use this as a learning tool to improve for the future.”

The invitational championship went to the Arrows of Ashland High School, who shot a 327 overall. The remainder of the scoring in Tiffin was: Shelby (353), Lexington (374), Norwalk (400), Lake (414), Tiffin Columbian (415), Wynford (424), Willard (442), Bellevue J.V. (451), Buckeye Central (452) and Galion (481).
