I didn’t get a chance to watch a lot of Gibson County golf this year, but the one match I went to was probably my favorite event of the spring.
It was a tight Gibson County meet at Oakland City Golf Course, with the Trojans edging both the Tigers and Titans for the first county championship since 2011.
I made my selections based on the Gibson County and sectional meets, so let’s dive right in, in no particular order.
MASON STOLL, GSHS
Mason Stoll was the leader for the Gibson Southern Titans all season long and was the team leader at the end of the County meet with a 76, just three strokes behind the match medalist.
At the Country Club of Old Vincennes, Stoll chipped a 77 for the fourth best score of the tournament, helping the Titans to a third place finish and a spot at regionals at Washington.
Stoll tallied a team-low 76 at the regional meet.
JACOB MURPHY, GSHS
Jacob Murphy had the lowest score of Gibson Countians at the sectional meet, placing third in the tourney with a 74.
At the Gibson County meet, Murphy tallied a 79, tied for fifth place overall with Princeton’s EJ Wilder, at Oakland City Country Club in early June.
At the Washington Regional, Murphy tallied an 86, the second best score by the Titans.
NATHAN SANDUSKY, PCHS
Nathan Sandusky struggled early, but found his groove late for the Princeton Tigers.
At the Gibson County meet, Sandusky tallied a 77 for the best PCHS score and third place in the Titans tournament.
At sectionals, Sandusky finished third amongst Gibson Countians with an 82 in the event to lead the Tigers to a fourth place finish, 10 strokes back of the Titans and one place back of advancing to regionals.
CARTER CREEDON, WMHS
Carter Creedon was one of two very consistent golfers for the Wood Memorial High School Trojans this season.
At the Gibson County meet, Creedon had the fourth lowest score with a 78 on his teams home course and followed that up with an 87 at sectional, good for the seventh lowest score in the county as the Trojans finished in ninth place at the Country Club of Old Vincennes with a 399.
JALEN DOERNER. WMHS
Alongside Creedon, Doerner was the second consistent golfer on the Trojans squad this year.
Doerner teed off at the Gibson County meet and finished as the match medalist with a 73, three strokes under Mason Stoll’s 76 second place finish.
At sectional, Doerner tied for fourth place of Gibson Countians with Princeton’s ERic Flaningam and EJ Wilder with an 85.
