Girls Golf Wins Tournament in Wheeling

Girls GolfGirls Golf Wins Tournament in Wheeling

Wheeling - Warren Local emerged victorious on the day after shooting a 206, just six shots ahead of host John Marshall at 212. River was third with a card of 230.

Regardless of the outcome, John Marshall girls’ assistant coach Bridget Carnahan was thrilled to see such an abundance of competitors.

“This is the biggest girls match that I have been involved with locally,” Carnahan said. “Usually there is a couple girls from this team and a couple of girls from that team. We still see that but now we are seeing full teams, too.”

Warren’s Hannah Jankauskas led all participants with an impressive card of 46 to earn match medalist honors.

“One thing I will give her credit for is that she drives the ball very well,” Warren coach Andy Biddinger said. “She can hit the ball out in the fairway. Right now we are trying to get her zoned in with some wedge play but on a course like this, if she hits her driver well, she won’t hit much more than a wedge.

“She has worked as hard as any boy or girl in our program for the last four years to try to get good. She wants to be good. I think she is just going to get better and better.”

Vincent - Ekrem Eksi was not exactly in a celebratory mood when Warren High scrimmaged and won a 2-0 decision against Fairfield Union at Falcon Stadium on Aug. 4.

“I was not happy with that game,” said the Warrior boys’ soccer coach. “We’re very young this season, and we have a lot of work to do. This is a brand new team.”

Last season, Warren fielded one of its best teams in program history, and finished 16-2-1 with some votes in the final Ohio Division II poll. During the campaign, the Warriors knocked off previously undefeated Alexander, 3-0. But then, they themselves were upset 2-1 in double overtime by Athens High in an Ohio SE D2 boys’ district soccer final at Logan High. During regular-season play, WHS beat the Bulldogs twice.

“We didn’t finish well,” Eksi said. “”Unfortunately, in a tournament game, you have to make it happen. If not, the team that you beat twice can come back and beat you. That’s what happened.”

Beverly - “Coshocton’s really good,” said Warren coach Nathan Evans, whose Warriors were runners-up with 329. “I think they brought everybody back. So, to finish second to them is pretty good.”

Warren’s scorers were Austin Barta (76), Seth Dennis (82), Chance Weihl (82), and Caleb Davis (89). Barta was an all-tourney honoree.

“I thought the guys came out, and they grinded today,” Evans said. “We didn’t have our best ball-striking day but I thought they held it together and put some good scores up on the board.”

Vincent - Warren High is hoping to make a deeper run in the postseason tournament this upcoming season.

Last year, the Warriors, 7-8-3, blanked visiting Athens High, 3-0, in a girls’ soccer Division II sectional opener before bowing out at top-seed Fairfield Union.

“The girls are motivated to build off of our seven wins last year to compete for a district title this year,” said second-year WHS girls soccer head coach Andy Pinkerton.

Warren graduated just three players (Emarie Smathers, Shelby Lofty, and Emma Rader) from last fall’s squad, and return 10 of 11 starters. This season, the royal blue and white varsity roster will be featuring 10 seniors.

“Even though our lineup will most likely be a little different this year, we will be more experienced and a lot deeper,” Pinkerton said. “And, we have our top four goal scorers returning.”

Belpre - Even though it was just an exhibition, Warren High appeared to be in mid-season form on the links.

The Warriors emerged the winner once again in the annual Washington County Championship golf tournament at Oxbow Golf Course Friday. The royal blue and white golfers bested runner-up Waterford High by 33 strokes, 325-358. Marietta High was third with 384; Fort Frye, fourth with 401; and host Belpre, fifth with 449.

“I think everybody did a great job today and played well,” said 11th-year Warren golf coach Nathan Evans, who, when the tourney counted, guided the Warriors to three straight championships. “It’s good to get a nice scrimmage under out belts and to get some of the nerves out early on.”

The Warriors were paced by their by their number one and two players’ Austin Barta and Seth Dennis. Both carded a 78 for the 18 holes of play.

“They just kind of got to keep going with the flow, clean up a couple things, and make a couple putts,” Evans said.
