All three schools were seperated by six strokes, with Columbia Cityâ€™s squad, led by three freshmen, taking the win.
â€śIt turned out to be a real competitive match,â€ť Columbia City Head Coach Andrew Thompson said. â€śI didnâ€™t know what to expect, it was only our second night on a golf course.â€ť

The Eagles were led by Tyler Green, who scored a 39. Fellow freshmen Cameron Slavich and Spencer Klimek and scored a 42 and 43, respectively, helping Columbia City to its 170 score.
