Gazette Staff



Bennett Zeitner and Tyler Phillips fired 74s to lead the Olentangy boys golf team to a season-low 317 and a win in the first annual Clash at the Creek Tuesday at Blues Creek Golf Club.

Braeden Gulley complemented the Braves’ top two with an 83 while Ben Wilch carded an 86.

“They did a good job of having a game plan to attack the course and stayed with it,” Olentangy coach Joel Glassburn said. “They had pretty good course management and kept the ball in play.

“We still need to work on putting, but with a little time off to practice we should be able to get that buttoned up to cut a few more shots off.”
