The Indians (23-1) scored 328 strokes to outdistance Chambersburg (21-3) , which had 352 on its home course.

“It was better than the 33 strokes we lost to them by in the last match,” Trojan coach Mark Yost said. “We didn’t really have our strongest lineup out there today, but we still improved, so that’s a good thing.

“Putting six in the top 10 is what we had been doing the last few years, so obviously Waynesboro is playing well.”

For ‘Boro, Devin Smith continues to lead the way — he’s been the medalist in all four matches this fall, including his 1-over par 73 on Thursday.

Teammates Dylan Byers (83), Evan Stein (84), Ethan Brooks (84), Brady Cauffman (88) and Ella Lowry (88) were also in the top 10.

For Chambersburg, Elijah Snyder tied for third with an 83, Owen Reichelderfer was ninth with an 86, Teegan Humelsine shot an 88, Jacob Carlin 90, Josh Bump 93, Spencer Bodner 94 and Dru Bowling 97.
