Chambersburg places 5th: The Mid Penn Commonwealth Division was at full strength with the addition of State College for its match Monday at Sportsman’s Golf Course and the Trojans finished fifth in the six-team event. Cumberland Valley was the team winner.
For Chambersburg (4-12), Jacob Carlin put together an up-and-down 80 to place sixth, six strokes behind winner Derek McGlaughlin of Lower Dauphin. Carlin managed to birdie four holes, but he had only four pars, plus two double bogeys.
Also for the Trojans, Owen Reichelderfer shot 83 to tie for 12, Jeremy Otto (88) tied for 19th, Teegan Humelsine (92) tied for 26th and Brennan Sease (95) was 39th.
“Those doubles came up and bit Jacob,” Chambersburg coach Mark Yost said. “He and Owen have been consistent, but they want to be lower. Jeremy struggled early, but he finished strong, which was nice. We were hoping to beat at least one other team than Hershey today and we got close to Central Dauphin and State College.”
Hershey 5, Chambersburg 0: The Trojans ran into a strong Hershey squad Monday and was blanked in a Mid Penn Commonwealth match at Norlo Park.
Hershey won four matches in straight sets, and also received a forfeit. The closest match came at No. 2 doubles, in which Aspen Kimberly and Sydni Byers of Chambersburg (2-3) fell 6-3, 6-2.
Trojan coach Josh Barwin said, “We took some games off their players, which is good to see, but we can play better as a whole. I thought Aspen and Sydni played fairly well today, despite the score.”
