Staff report

ARCANUM — Weather shortened the Joe Middleton Boys Golf Invitational, held Saturday in Arcanum and hosted by Tri-Village.

Because some pairings completed only 15, 16 or 17 holes, it was decided that each golfer’s score would be determined by their score relative to par after their first 15 holes.

Russia was 11th, Botkins 12th and Houston 20th.

For Fairlawn, Mason Jones and Nathan Lessing tied for the team lead at 4-over, which was good enough for second overall. Kody Curtner was at plus-10 and Ben Brautigam plus-17.

For Anna, Zach Watren was at 8-over, Mason Platfoot 9-over, Eli Kuck 10-over and Troy Rindler 16-over.
