The Olentangy Liberty boys golf team tightened its grip on the OCC-Buckeye Division, winning the second of the season’s four league events Monday at Apple Valley.

The Patriots, led by Josh Steyer and Logan McCarrell’s 75s, finished with a combined 302. They also won the league’s first event last week at Turnberry, carding a combined 295.

Andrew Blosser and Grant Smeltzer also scored for Liberty, finishing with 76s.

Olentangy Orange closed second with a team total of 306 while Olentangy was third with a 307. The three Westerville schools smoothed out the scoring summary.

Luke Johnson led the Pioneers with a 79 while Chas Martin and Cameron Casto had 76s for the Braves.
