The St. Xavier Varsity Golf Team traveled to Maineville, Ohio to compete in the GCGA TPC Riversbend Tournament on Tuesday night. After a short delay due to rain, the five Bomber seniors were finally able to tee off and they didn’t disappoint. They were able to bring another tournament win back home to St. X with a team score of 297.
Because of the rain, the course was wet and very receptive to the golf ball. This allowed for a few low scores. Michael Prebles not only led the team, but also the tournament with an 18-hole score of 70. He shot a six under 30 on the back 9 to come into the clubhouse with a two under total round score. He earned medalist honors with this score as well. Teammate Cameron Frazier, a Wisconsin golf commit, came in second for the tournament with a one under 71 and Daniel Hogan shot a three over 75. Rounding out the team, Michael Wilberding shot an 81 and George Mitchell shot an 84.
Tomorrow, the Bombers will tee it up at Kenwood Country Club in the final nine-hole quad of the GCL Tournament. Going into tomorrow, St. Xavier has a commanding 31 stroke lead over the second place Elder Panthers. They look to continue shooting the ball well and gain even more momentum heading into the final two rounds of the GCL quad on Sunday and Monday.
