The Jonathan Alder boys golf team split its home tri-match Thursday, Aug. 28, at Buck Ridge Golf Course.

Logan Elm 233,
The Red Raiders came out on the wrong end of a Mid-State League match with Logan Elm Thursday, Aug. 28 at Raintree South Golf Club, but there were reasons to be happy if you’re a follower of London.
Morgan Haynes was the event medalist with a career-best nine-hole score of 45. Jessie Thompson finished with a 58, Kendra Berschet fired a 63, while Brook Carter had a 90 and Katie Hill carded a 112.
Berschet’s round included her first-ever birdie, it was the first birdie for any Red Raiders golfer this season.
The Golden Eagles traveled to Circleville Thursday, Aug. 28 for a league match, but the host Tigers did not have enough members to record a team score so Madison-Plains High School won by forfeit. Coach Jim Miller’s team fired a 194. Circleville had only three players.
Kaylin Dill and Bailey Stephens were co-medalists with rounds with 41. Christan Bowshier came through with a 50. Regan Rubel and Morgan Hunter had matching rounds of 62, Emma Davis (71) and Blair Bryant (75) also played for Plains.
