The University School boys golf team didn’t graduate any linkers from last year’s postseason team, but the Preppers had a new ringer leading them back to districts during the Division I sectional tournament on Tuesday in Concord Township.
Representing the maroon and black out of the fifth spot in the lineup, freshman Sachin Singh fired a 3-over-par 74 to finish third among 84 golfers from 17 teams at Quail Hollow Country Club. He was bested only by St. Ignatius senior Ross Williamson and sophomore Topher Reed, who both fired 72s for the Wildcats.
St. Ignatius won the sectional title with 294 strokes from its low four shooters, while University School was runner-up with 311 strokes, defending champ Mentor was third with 322 strokes and Mayfield took fourth with 335 strokes to advance to districts.
Also leading the Preppers, senior Ben Clegg and sophomore Chris Bridge fired 78-stroke rounds to tie for 10th, while junior Joey Kubic shot an 81 and junior Grant Mylen carded an 82 to finish in the top quarter of the field.
Bridge, Clegg and Kubic are postseason returners for University School, which took third with 326 strokes during last year’s sectional tournament, while Mylen earned his spot in the varsity lineup this season. Clegg bettered his round by 9 strokes from a year ago.
Punching his ticket to districts as an individual, meanwhile, Kenston senior Adam Farrell fired a 79-stroke round to finished 13th overall and was tied for the second-best score among players not on a qualifying team.
Farrell was on the Bombers’ 2018 postseason team that competed at Windmill Lakes, where he carded an 85.
Up next, the University linksters and Kenston’s Farrell will compete among 120 golfers during the Division I Northeast District tournament Oct. 7 at the Pine Hills par-72 course in Hinckley Township.
