ATHENS WINS AGAIN; TOPS FIELD BY 10 STROKES AT TYOGA COUNTRY CLUB
 

WELLSBORO — Athens, led by junior Evan Cooper, had three golfers in the top seven to record its second straight first-place finish in NTL golf action here Monday afternoon at the Tyoga Country Club.

The Wildcats, now 12-0 in league play, recorded a four-man aggregate score of 365, while Wyalusing was runner-up at 375, Wellsboro was third at 379, and North Penn-Mansfield finished fourth at 389. Cowanesque Valley finished fifth with a score of 436, while Towanda was sixth at 535, and Sayre was seventh at 564.

Cooper, who was low medalist at Shepard Hills last week, was second on the day with a round of 82 — just one shot off the pace of NP-M senior Andrew Green, who carded an 81 on the par-71 course.

Junior Nicholas Jacob finished sixth overall for the Wildcats with a career-best round of 88, and sophomore Dylan Saxon was seventh with an 89.

Cooper birdied the par-4 third hole, while Jacob registered a birdie on the par-5 fifth hole.

Athens senior Cam Sullivan finished 14th with a round of 106, while junior Sean Clare was 17th with a non-scoring round of 110, and senior Lucas Kraft was 19th with a non-scoring round of 111.

Senior Kegan Hayford led Sayre with a 124, while junior David Hall Jr. carded a 137, freshman Tanner Green added a 142, and freshman Ryne Osmond tacked on a 161.

Athens returns to action Sept. 1 at the Towanda Country Club.
