YORK — The York Comprehensive High School boys’ golf team concluded regular-season action with strong showings in two competitive events.
The Cougars traveled to the Lancaster Golf Course for a four-way match with host Lancaster, Clover and Nation Ford.
Ideal golf weather and a well-groomed course provided for spirited play among the leading teams in Region 3-AAAA. Eight of the 16 scores were in the 30s; the match was tight throughout.
When the final scores were tabulated, Clover finished at 156. Nation Ford ended with 160, and York and Lancaster tied at 163.
Leading the Cougar charge was senior Logan Aggeles at an even-par 36. Other players were Austin Hall, 41; Luke Lancaster, 43; Chandler Sain, 43; Stroud Baker, 44; and Tucker Laney, 47.
The final season match, originally scheduled for March 28, was held at Pinetuck Golf Course in Rock Hill. Playing with York and South Pointe was the Northwestern Trojans golf team.
“Great weather and a fun golf course saw the Cougars have their best score of the season, yet come up one shot short to host South Pointe at 156,” said YCHS head golf coach David Lancaster. “Northwestern at 167 trailed the (community league) Red Ponies and Prowling Cats.”
Individually, York posted three scores in the 30s for the first time this season, with senior Luke Lancaster (37) earning match medalist honors for the sixth time this season.
Senior Stroud Baker (38) had another impressive day and sophomore Austin Hall (39) fired his best score of the season. Senior Logan Aggeles (43), sophomore Chandler Sain (46), and freshman Tucker Laney (47) contributed to the Cougars’ season-peaking effort.
The Cougar golf team finished the regular season at 11-9-2.
While the varsity “big boys” slugged it out, the junior varsity Cougars were also in action at Pinetuck with the JV Stallions and Trojans.
The young Cougars were led by JV match medalist and York Middle School eighth-grader Seth Miller (43). He had help from Chayce Blackwell (45), a pair of 47s from Andrew Roderick and Damon Heath, seventh-grader Landon Joye (52) and southpaw swinger Will Culp (53).
The York JV Cougars (182) improved 16 shots from their previous outing to finish second to Northwestern (178), with the JV South Pointe Stallions (185) in third place.
Lancaster thanked the faculty and staff at YCHS and YMS, the district office and transportation services, parents and “many Cougar Crazies out there cheering for all Cougar sports.”
YCHS golfers Logan Aggeles, Stroud Baker, Luke Lancaster, Austin Hall, Chandler Sain and Tucker Laney represented the YCHS team in the 36-hole Region 3-AAAA golf tournament Tuesday in Lancaster.
