Montgomery excels at Willard

WILLARD — It’s no surprise when Upper Sandusky’s Brett Montgomery wins a medal in a golf tournament.

He’s just that good.

But still, what he did in the weather-shortened Willard Invitational Friday is eyebrow-raising.

The Rams’ standout finished first in the individual standings with a nine-hole score of 34. He was one of only two players — Genoa’s Ethan Smith being the other — who shot in the 30s. And Smith shot a 38.

It was the second-consecutive year Montgomery has won in Willard, and coach Rams’ coach Graham Treadway said his man was rolling on the second nine when weather rolled in.

“Brett was 3 under with two holes to play when they called it,” Treadway said. “Brett was striking the ball really well and made a few nice birdies.”

Montgomery led the Rams to a second-place 167. Scores were tabulated for every player after nine holes. Genoa, the team champion, also shot a 167, winning by the fifth-man tiebreaker.

For Upper Sandusky, Trevor Clifford shot a 41, which was four shots better than teammate Isaiah Washburn, and six strokes better than another teammate, Owen Knapp. Ben Latham added a 49 for Upper Sandusky.

The Rams finished second despite being without usual scorer Evan Young, who was out with an injury.

Host Willard finished third with a 176. The Flashes were led by Kolin McKelvey, who fired a 40. Plymouth followed with a 188, and Bellevue was fifth with a 194.

Conor Rospert put up a 46 to lead the Redmen, and fellow Bellevue player Garrett Vickery came in a stroke behind him.

Buckeye Central was sixth with a 205. Adam Krebs shot a BC-best 47, while fellow Buck Tyler Rose had a 48.

Black River (215) and Norwalk St. Paul (248) rounded out the scoring.
