Lakota West claims sectional golf crown

Hubert, Hobbs spark Firebirds

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        The dream season continued Thursday for the Lakota West boys golf team at Glenview Golf Course.

        Led by juniors Brent Hubert and Kenton Hobbs, who both shot 76, the Firebirds scored a 316 to win a Division I sectional championship while earning a spot in next week's district tournament at Weatherwax Golf Course in Middletown.

        Anderson and Mason tied for second at 323, and Moeller carded 324 to advance to the district tournament.

        “We've played as a team all season with no one player carrying us,” Lakota West coach Jack Buhi said. “We're very well-rounded with every player a medalist at least two times.”

        The Firebirds compiled a 12-2 dual-meet record, won the Greater Miami Conference championship and finished No.1 in the Enquirer's Division I poll.

        “I can't remember the last time we won a sectional cham pionship,” Buhi said. “The course didn't play tough, but the kids told me they had trouble putting.”

        In the Division II district tournament at Weatherwax, Kettering Alter and Dayton Oakwood finished 1-2 to earn the top two positions in next week's state tournament in Columbus.

        Badin came in at 319 for third place, with Indian Hill (327) fifth, Franklin (339) sixth and Wyoming (348) eighth.

        The Division III sectional was played at Pipestone. Summit Country Day, Seven Hills, East Clinton and Middletown Fenwick earned the qualifying spots in the district tournament next Thursday at Weatherwax.

        Mike Bernard, Summit's No.4 golfer, shot a 76 to capture medalist honors.
