Chambersburg roundup: Trojan boys golf 4th in final match of season

Chambersburg places 4th: In the final Mid Penn Commonwealth match of the season, at Armitage Golf Club, the Trojans had two top-10 placers to put them in fourth place in the team standings.

For the season, Chambersburg finished 10-16.

Jacob Carlin shot 76 to tie for fifth place. His round included birdies on Nos. 11, 15 and 18, and his only double bogey came on No. 16.

Also for the Trojans, Owen Reichelderfer shot 80 to tie for 8th, Cooper Miller shot 84 to tie for 14th, an 88 by Jeremy Otto put him in 19th place, and the two non-scorers were Jacob Bassham (90) and Teegan Humelsine (91).

Chambersburg coach Mark Yost said, “Cooper Miller almost had the best round of his life. He had two birdies (back-to-back on 8 and 9), but he also had two big numbers — if not for those, he would have had his best score. Carlin played pretty well and he and Owen should be able to do well in Mid Penns next week.”

The Trojans will send six boys to the Mid Penn Tournament at Royal Manchester on Monday, and three girls to the MPC tourney on Wednesday at Armitage.

Cedar Cliff 5, Chambersburg 0: The Colts won all five matches, but several of them were close in a Mid Penn Commonwealth match Thursday at Norlo Park.

At No. singles for the Trojans (2-5), Sarah Vessah fell 4-6, 2-6, 10-8; at No. 2, Avery Wissinger was defeated 7-6 (7-3), 2-6; and at No. 3, Stormy Jackson put up a fight in a 6-3, 7-5 defeat.  At No. 1 doubles, Ridglee Flohr and Alanna Olson fell 6-0, 6-3, while at No. 2, Aspen Kimberly and Sydni Byers won 6-2, then lost 6-0 and 10-6.

Chambersburg coach Josh Barwin said, “We were without No. 3 singles Biya Khan, so we had to move a few players up. We were very close on a couple courts, and I think we gave a few away, to be honest. Alanna Olson came up from JV and played well given the circumstances.”

On Tuesday, Chambersburg was edged 3-2 by Central Dauphin. Vessah (No. 1) and Khan (No. 3) both battled to victory in three-set duels.
