Boys golf

Sidney 168, Piqua 185

The Yellow Jackets earned a victory in a Miami Valley League match on Monday at Echo Hills Golf Course in Piqua.

Trey Werntz led the Yellow Jackets with a 39 while Brandan Rose, Ben Spangler and Kaden Abbott each shot 43.

“The boys scared me today,” Sidney coach Bill Rippey said. “They struggled on the first few holes but they picked it up. Rose was eight over (par) after the first four holes and played the last five one under. That is really hard to do, and I was proud that he was able to keep his cool.”

The victory also earns a half point for Sidney in the Piqua vs. Sidney all-sports trophy competition. The schools are in their third year of the competition, which determines a winner based on a points system from results of all sports where teams from the schools match up. One point is awarded for sports where the schools play once a season and a half point is awarded per contest in sports where the schools play twice.

Piqua has a 1-.5 lead over Sidney. The boys golf teams will face off again on Sept. 25 at Shelby Oaks Golf Club.

Angela played a good first set but was fighting a cold and ran out of gas in the second set. Mary played well and moved the ball around well and our doubles continued to show improvement against two very good teams.”
