Trojans place 2nd at Whitetail: Waynesboro put together a dominating performance Monday afternoon to hand Chambersburg its second defeat of the Mid Penn Colonial season at Whitetail Golf Resort.
The Indians counted three golfers in the top 10, including medalist Devin Smith, who fired a 1-under par 71 to beat the runner-up, teammate Evan Stein, by 12 strokes. Ella Lowry (91) tied for 10th and had the lowest girls score of the day.
The Trojans’ best score was an 86 for Owen Reichelderfer, which gave him fifth place.
Other Chambersburg scorers were Teegan Humelsine (92), Heather Sanbower (94), Elijah Snyder (97) and Jacob Carlin (99). The Indians finished 33 strokes in the clear of the Trojans.
“Some of our kids are struggling right now and on these courses, that’s tough,” Trojan coach Mark Yost said. “But hats off to Waynesboro — they played well and Devin has separated himself as the top dog in the division.”
James Buchanan placed fifth, Greencastle-Antrim sixth and Shippensburg seventh. JB’s Caleb Reath tied for third with an 85, G-A’s Shea Toomey tied for 10th with a 91 and Ship’s best score was a 94 by Stephen Lucas.
Hershey 5, Chambersburg 0: The Trojans met up with very tough opponent Monday afternoon and were blanked by Hershey in a non-league match.
“These results don’t give my team justice,” Chambersburg coach Josh Barwin said. “We played hard the whole way through, but just couldn’t get things going our way. We will learn from this and get better.”
Hershey did not give up a point in any of the five matches, winning 6-0, 6-0 in each against the Trojans (0-2).
Barwin said, “We have another opportunity tomorrow to show that we’re putting in the work. The results we want will come our way soon.”
