By Dan WoodlockIt was only fitting that three of the five Willard seniors helped close out a victory in their final career home match.
Aaron Feltner, Carson Ebert and Steve Schaaf all shot keep scores for the Flashes on Wednesday, as they turned away Tiffin Columbian by three strokes, 177-180, at the Willard Golf Club.
Feltner and Ebert led the way in the win with rounds of 41 and 42, respectively. Brayden Bruner chipped in at 44, followed by Schaaf, who finished with a 50.
Willard's two other seniors, Brandon Wilson and Ben White, carded rounds of 51 and 55 in their home finales. Wilson finished as the fifth man, while White was second amongst the junior varsity keep scores, behind Dorian Holida's 51.
Alec Gardner added a 53 for the WHS varsity, which tallied its fifth win of the season.
Jack Burkes' 42 paced Columbian. He was followed by Graydon Bunting's 44 and matching 47's from Wesley Henkel and Logan Gardner.
The Tornadoes' jayvees earned a 213-226 win over Willard. The Flashes received scores of 60 from both Shelby Moneypenny and Graham Wiers. Callie Jones shot 71.
"Congratulations to our seniors on closing out the last home match of their careers," said WHS Head Coach Mark White. "They will be greatly missed."
