St. John’s senior Nick Kayser follows through on his approach shot on 14. He parred the hole.
DELPHOS — Kalida’s boys golfers downed runner-up Allen East 309-330 in the 18-hole Delphos Country Club Invitational held on a gorgeous Saturday morning/afternoon.
The Wildcats had three players in the 70s: Neil Recker at 74 (tied for medalist honors with Tanner Clingaman of Stryker), Cody Mathew 76 and Austin Horstman 77.
“We were hoping to shoot around 310 and we were one stroke better. This is about where we’ve been all year, especially in our invitationals; we seem able to perform better the longer the meets,” Kalida coach Ken Schnipke explained. “We have been playing well all season; in our duals, we’ve been around 152 as a team. We can start preparing for the post-season this week, with the PCL in a week back here — that’s even better preparation — and sectionals a couple of days later. We’ll see a lot of the same teams in the next two weeks.”
Ottoville came in third at 332 with Derek Schimmoeller putting in a 76 and host St. John’s — led by senior Nick Kayser’s 79 — was barely fourth at 333.
