Waynesboro ends Trojans’ run of Mid Penn golf titles

DILLSBURG — All good things have to come to an end, right?

That’s the case for the Chambersburg golf team, which will not claim a Mid Penn Conference division championship for the first time since 2008. The Trojans had earned 10 straight titles, including nine straight in the Colonial Division.

That streak ended officially Wednesday at Range End Golf Club when Waynesboro beat Chambersburg by 19 strokes to grab the Colonial crown with a 40-2 record. In the seven division matches, the Indians won five times and the Trojans twice.

“Waynesboro has been shooting the kind of scores we used to shoot,” Chambersburg coach Mark Yost said. “They are simply playing better than us right now.”

Boro’s Devin Smith posted his best score of the season, a 3-under par 68, and was the medalist at each match.

For the Trojans, Owen Reichelderfer shot 78 to place third, Jacob Carlin had 79 for fourth and Tyson Shaull tied for 10th with an 86. Also, Cooper Miller shot 87, Spencer Bodner 89 and Heather Sanbower and Dru Bowling each had 92.

“We shot well,” Yost said. “Owen and Jacob both got into the 70s for the first time this year, so I’m pleased. We played a few guys to get them qualified for Mid Penns and they did well.”

For Waynesboro, Brady Cauffman had an 81, Evan Stein had 82 and Ella Lowry had the best girls’ score with an 82.

For James Buchanan, which finished with a 12-30 record, Caleb Reath shot 82 to tie for seventh and Larry Singer had 89. Shea Toomey shot 86 to tie for 10th for Greencastle-Antrim, which finished 9-33. And Shippensburg (6-36) was led by JT Thomas with a 90.

The Mid Penn Conference tournament for boys is Monday at Dauphin Highlands, while the Mid Penn girls event is Wednesday at Armitage.
