JC tops Sidney
SIDNEY — Sidney and Jackson Center played at Shelby Oaks on Tuesday, and Jackson won by three strokes over the Yellow Jackets, 187-190.
For Jackson, Trent Platfoot shot a 44 to share medalist honors, Bryce and Drew Sosby both shot 48 and Brady Wildermuth had a 49.
For Sidney, Cole Cartwright also had a 44, Jared Lindsay 46, Gambit Hand 49 and Thomas Atwood 51.
“We didn’t play our best match, but I was proud of Gambit’s score today,” said Sidney coach Thomas Goffena. “If you asked the kids how their score went, they would be disappointed. We just have to get more consistent around the green and on the green. But at the end of the day, Jackson Center just played better than us and deserved to win.”
