COLUMBIA CITY â€” Columbia Cityâ€™s golf team hosted and lost to Northeast Hoosier Conference foe East Noble Tuesday night at Eagle Glen.
East Nobleâ€™s Michael Sharp fired a one-over par as the matchâ€™s medalist with a 37, leading the Knights to the 160-176 win. The visitors posted three scores under 40.
The courseâ€™s ninth hole was again a problem for the Eagles, who posted three double bogeys and a triple.
â€śWe havenâ€™t played our home course very well,â€ť Columbia City Head Coach Andrew Thompson said. â€śIn all reality, 16 shots werenâ€™t going to be made up in the ninth hole.â€ť
Max Dryer led Columbia City with a 41. Drew Benedict, who played his first match of the season after wrist surgery, was the Eaglesâ€™ second-best linkster Tuesday, shooting a 44. Teammate Drew Burnsworth wasnâ€™t far behind with a 45.
Derek Philbee shot a 46 and Dustin Parrett was Columbia Cityâ€™s fifth varsity golfer with a 47.
