PATASKALA — Brent Morgan has another golf match this season.

Although his Coal Grove teammates finished the season at the Division III district golf tournament, Morgan earned an extra match as he qualified as an individual for the state golf tournament.

Morgan — a sophomore — shot a 76 and was one of four individual qualifiers Tuesday at the district tournament held at Cumberland Trail Golf Course.

The Div. III state tournament will be held Friday and Saturday, Oct. 12-13, at the North Star Golf Resort in Sunbury.

The Hornets shot 357 as a team with Conor Markins carding an 86, Cody Davidson 91, Brandon Adkins 104 and Justin Mullens 118.

Davison and Mullens are seniors, Markins a junior and Adkins a sophomore.

Wellington and Columbus Academy tied for the low team score at 309, but Wellington won the tiebreaker by one stroke to claim the district title.

The other two teams qualifying for the state tournament were Tree of Life Christian and Sugarcreek Garaway.

Other individual state qualifiers were Cameron Michalak of Grove City Christian, Jeg Coughlin of Village Academy and Branden Offenberger of Waterford.

Michalak and Mark David Wright of Tree of Life tied for medalist honors and each shot a 73.
