COLUMBUS — The state golf tournament is a great experience for the participants. It was also quite an experience playing not only the course but against the wind.

Ironton Fighting Tigers’ senior Josh Zornes and Coal Grove Hornets’ freshman Brent Morgan spent the weekend on different courses but battling the same wind at the Ohio High School Athletic Association state golf tournament.

Zornes played on the North Star Golf Resort in the Division II tournament while Morgan was on the Ohio State University Scarlet Course at the Division III tournament.

Zornes shot a 91 on Friday with a 45 on the front nine and a 46 on the back side. He shot a 44 and 46 on Saturday to finish the tournament at 181, good for 10th place among the individual qualifiers and tied for 47th among all golfers.

Morgan was seventh among the individual qualifiers in Div. III with a 172 total. He shot 42 and 43 on Friday for an 85 total, then shot 42 and 45 on Saturday for an 87 score. Morgan tied for 19th among all the Division III golfers.
