Rensch places third: Chambersburg hosted the Mid Penn Commonwealth Division in a season-opening golf match at its home courses, Penn National, on Monday and the Trojans’ Emily Rensch ended up in third place.
Rensch had a rough start, with a triple on No. 1at Iron Forge, followed by four bogeys. But she rallied to post a score of 85.
Her teammate, Emma Tolbert, also started slowly, with two triples and two doubles in the first four holes, but steadied the ship to score a 94, good for sixth place. That included a birdie on No. 8. The other Trojan to finish was Alaina Morris, who shot 110 to tie for 15th place.
Chambersburg coach Mark Yost said, “Emily held it together after that start until another double on the last hole. Take away that triple and a double and she would have been in second place. She and Emma did OK today and Morris played in her first match.”
Trojans take sixth: Chambersburg put three golfers in the 80’s, but that wasn’t enough to compete with the rest of the Mid Penn Commonwealth and finished in last place in a match at Penn National’s Founders Course on Monday.
Jacob Bassham and Jeremy Otto each shot 12-over par 84 for the Trojans to place 21st, while Teegan Humelsine signed for an 89 and a tie for 26th place. Brady Fretz was next with a 93, tied for 31st place.
“Our top two guys today should improve and Teegan is capable of putting up a good score,” Chambersburg coach Mark Yost said. If we could shave off 10 strokes or so, we could compete with some of the teams.”
