Division I district tournament
ARLINGTON — A year ago Perrysburg’s Mason Deal carded a 90 as a freshman at Red Hawk in the Division I district boys golf tournament.
The Yellow Jackets qualified as a team yet again, and Deal anchored the lineup as a sophomore being just one of four golfers to card sub-40 scores on both halves of Arlington’s Sycamore Springs course.
However, despite shooting a 77 to finish tied for fourth individually, Deal lost in a playoff with Toledo John’s sophomore Joey Gemerchak in narrowly missing the mark to advance to the state tournament.
Perrysburg, a year after winning the district meet, finished fifth as a team with 333 team strokes — 15 behind champion Elida. Ashland also advanced with 322 strokes.
Elida freshman Carson Harmon and Ashland sophomore Tyler Sabo tied for medalist honors with a 74 each.
The rest of Perrysburg’s lineup were seniors, led by 85’s from both Luke Gordon and Nick Mondora. Liam Hansen also scored with an 86 and Drew Paule carded a 104.
Bowling Green sophomore Zach Thomas qualified for the district tournament, but did not participate on Thursday.
