Coach Drew Hobensack said, “For our first match we did some things that I liked and did something’s we need to improve on. Carson and trey played the first 3 holes at even par so we got out to a fast start. Course conditions were real tough today. And that’s evident by Brett shooting a 41. He is usually around par or under par for that matter. It’s also the first varsity experience for 3 of our guys so I know the nerves were there as well.”
The Ben Logan Boys Golf Team Tuesday finished 2nd behind Lima Central Catholic by a single stroke.
LCC shot 352, Ben Logan 353, Sidney 356, Springfield Shawnee 366, Indian Lake 377, Riverside 400, and Northwestern 411.

Coach Chris Conley said, “The course seemed to play a little more difficult today with the hard ground and fast conditions. Additionally the winds picked up to alter some shots. It was heartbreaking to loose by a single shot but that shows how vital each and every shot is. I really like the team we have this year and I see us improving as the year progresses.”
Additionally for the Raiders, Jacob Mitchell had a 89, Trey Allen 92, Alex Naragon and Aiden Elsass 94, and Bryce Loomis 95.
