Trojan golf team shines in home match

Chambersburg goes 4-1: Playing at their home course Tuesday, Penn National Iron Forge, the Trojans came out on top of a very packed bunch to place second behind State College in a Mid Penn Commonwealth match.

The Little Lions had 311 strokes, followed by Chambersburg (8-13) with 318, Lower Dauphin with 320, Cumberland Valley with 321 and Central Dauphin with 322.

“That’s us playing to our potential,” Trojan coach Mark Yost said. “Having all those teams separated by just five strokes made it really fun.”

Chambersburg’s Teegan Humelsine shot by far his best round of the season, firing a one-over par 73 to earn medalist honors by one stroke over teammate Owen Reichelderfer. Humelsine birdied his second hole (No. 4), carded 9 pars on the back nine, then birdied No. 1 to earn first place.

Yost said, “He played up to his potential today. There was some comfort playing on the home course, and he probably gained some confidence because he got off to a good start. Owen also had a great day.”

Reichelderfer scored birdies on Nos. 12 and 15, but was hurt with a double bogey on No. 1. The Trojans’ third player was Jacob Carlin (tied for 18th with an 83), who notched birdies on Nos. 7 and 18, but also carded a trio of doubles. Also for Chambersburg, Jeremy Otto was tied for 25th with an 88 and Cooper Miller was 28th with an 89.

The Trojans play their final match on Thursday at Armitage G.C.
