After edging Minster by two strokes on Friday, the Fort Loramie boys golf followed that up by winning the Shelby County League preview at Shelby Oaks.

The Redskins finished with a 331 while Anna was second at 342 and Jackson Center third at 369.

Loramie had consistency across the board as five players shot in the 80’s , led by Shea Swick, who tied for third with Anna’s Eli Kuck with an 80. Craig Eilerman carded an 82, Mitchell Puthoff 84, Zach Pleiman 85 and Eli Rosengarten 86.

“Competing against Minster Friday helped, but with all five of those guys back from last year, having that experience was more important,” said Redskin coach Brad Turner. “If we can continue to have that consistency, we will have a very successful season.”

Mason Platfoot paced Anna as he tied for medalist honors with Nick Fischio of Botkins, both shooting a 76. Platfoot carded a 35 in the South nine holes while Fischio had a 37 in the South and a 39 in the West.
