FREMONT – Fremont Ross’ golf teams continue to show signs of steady, confidence-building improvement.
Tuesday afternoon, in the season’s second week, the boys team accomplished something it took all year to do last season: Shoot under 200 as a team over nine holes.
The girls team, meanwhile, not only picked up a dual match victory, but is also creeping upward closer to the 200 barrier as well.
While the Little Giants’ team score of 197 was 11 shots behind Whitmer, boys coach Jim Scharer was thrilled to see his team of underclassmen do something that had taken a team of upperclassmen nearly the entire year to accomplish a year ago.
“It is gratifying to be under 200 this early in the year,” Scharer said. “Especially with as young as we are. We played three freshmen and three sophomores. This is a pretty consistent group. We improved by eight shots from (Monday).”
Gabe Ontiveros and Mason Durnwald each shot 47 while Will Stotz added a 51. Scout Mosser and Owen Wright tied for the fourth and final spot for the team score, each shooting 52 and John Mapus wasn’t far behind as he shot 54.
As for the Lady Giants, they defeated Mohawk by a score of 206-266, which is a six-shot improvement from their weekend match against Bellevue, a one-stroke defeat.
Against Mohawk, Ross was led by Alana Smith and Shelby Level, each breaking 50 – Smith shot 46 and Level a 49. Brooke Baptista shot 54 while Mekhia Williams added a 56.
The golf teams are back in action Wednesday as the boys travel to Belmont County Club to face Perrysburg while the girls go to Maumee Bay to face-off against Genoa.
