Tough Test Lies Ahead for State Golfers

COLUMBUS, Ohio The 42nd annual boys Division II and III and fourth annual girls Division II golf tournaments are set to begin October 14 with 36 holes of golf spanning two days. The action returns to The Ohio State University Golf Club in Columbus and NorthStar Golf Resort in Sunbury.

 

A very good girls Division II field will be facing the Gray Course (Par 70, 5,560 yards) at Ohio State. Top individual returnees include 2010 individual runner-up sophomore Sarah Kolodzik from Dayton Miami Valley School, senior Brynn FitzGerald from Pepper Pike Orange and junior Ashley Yarbrough from the 2010 team state champion Shaker Heights Hathaway Brown. The 2010 state team runner-up, Poland Seminary has three of its five golfers back from a year ago, looking to improve upon their success.

 

The boys Division II tournament field will get its second look at NorthStar Golf Resort (Par 72, 6,796 yards) after the course played host to the Division III tournament in 2010. Dayton Oakwood returns as defending team champion and is looking to become the fifth school in Ohio with four boys state team championships (1985, 2009, 2010). Many new faces will be atop the leaderboard in 2011 as senior Logan Lagodich from Canton Central Catholic is the only returning golfer from the top 10.

 

In boys Division III, golfers will face a tough task on the Scarlet Course (Par 71, 7,043 yards) at Ohio State. Sugarcreek Garaway is led by senior Ryan Troyer, who was an individual co-champion in 2010. Gates Mills Gilmour Academy won the team championship the previous year at NorthStar and is looking to continue play well, led by junior Andrew Bieber. Other top returning individuals from 2010 include Connor Dudley from Fremont St. Joseph Central Catholic and Jon Taylor from Columbus Wellington School.
