Olentangy Liberty, led by balanced scoring up and down the lineup, carded a combined 351 to win the 2014 edition of the Olentangy Classic Friday at Oakhaven.
The Patriots didn’t have a single golfer in the top five, but snuck two into the top 10. Priyasha Kota finished tops on the team, firing an 84 — a mark good enough to tie her for seventh overall — while Liv Dunning finished 10th among the nearly 60 girls in action with an 85. Other Liberty contributors included Sidney Kadlic, who finished with an 86; Camryn Calus, who had a 96; and Halie Bryer, who finished with a 97.
Host Olentangy, which finished second with a 366, boasted the first- and second-lowest rounds among Delaware County competitors, but didn’t have the complementary scores to keep up with its sister school. Kara Raines led the Braves with an 82 while Alex Cardi finished right behind her with an 83 — efforts good enough for fifth and sixth overall, respectively.
Amanda Chirico (98), Maddie Gwinn (103) and Taylor Renzi (118) also chipped in for Olentangy.
Other team scores include third-place Grove City’s 379, Westerville South’s 385, Hilliard Davidson’s 388, Thomas Worthington’s 393, Lancaster’s 407, Lakewood and Tri-Valley’s 410s and Delaware Hayes’ 428. Jonathan Alder, Olentangy Orange and Westerville North were also in action, but didn’t have enough representation to smooth-out a scorecard.
Hayes, playing in just its second tournament since becoming a varsity program at the start of the season, was led by Bailey Hager’s 13th-place, 87-stroke performance. The Pacers’ CC Barger was close behind with an 89 while Riley Geiger finished with a 120 and McKenzi Confer closed with a 132.
The Pioneers, who had just three participants, were powered by Brittany Miller’s 84. Kennedy Willis and Madison Webb contributed scores of 97 and 108, respectively.
