GALION — The Galion Tigers boys golf team has been quite busy already this season. They’re ahead of all other fall sports teams when it comes to matches played and tournaments entered.
But there is still plenty of golf to remain and coach Bryce Lehman, entering his fifth year as Galion’s golf coach, is expecting more this year as his team if full of golfers with plenty of varsity experience.
Lehman expects to better last season’s overall record of 6-11. Galion was 4-10 in the Mid-Ohio Atheletic Conference.
He says this is a legitimate goal because his team lost no key players from the 2015 squad.
“We need to lower scores and eliminate the big number scores on one or two holes per match,” he said.
Key returning players are Jack McElligott (second-team Mid Ohio Athletic Conference last season), Nick Kruger (honorable mention MOAC.), Brevin Owens, Mitch Dyer, Kaleb Harsh and Matt Kingseed.
The Tigers’ home matches are at Sycamore Creek, formerly Galion Country Club.
Their season kicked off the season Aug. 5 and already the Tigers have participated in the MOAC Invitational in Mount Gilead, the Clear Fork Invitational, the Bucyrus Elks Tournament and their own Galion Invitational, which they won.
