Golfing in the rain

WARREN – John F. Kennedy’s boys golf team got off to a good start, despite the wet conditions during Monday’s third annual JFK Invitational at Trumbull County Club.

Mentor Lake Catholic, led by medalist Nick Sharf’s 75, paced the Cougars with a low team score of 318.

JFK finished second at 336, with Poland (340), Cardinal Mooney (345) and Girard (350) rounding out the top five of the 13 teams present.

East Liverpool’s Issac Davidson shared medalist honors with Sharf by shooting a 75.

JFK coach Jim St. George said he was pleased with the team’s result on Monday.

The Eagles won the tournament the first year and East Liverpool took the title last season.

“With the conditions and everything, I was very happy for second,” St. George said. “I thought Mentor Lake Catholic and Mooney would be at the top. Especially with the weather, you never know what’s going to happen.”

The Eagles continue play Wednesday at the Kenston Invitational (Punderson State Park Golf Course) and Thursday at the Alliance Invitational.

This is one of many high-level, 18-hole tournaments the Eagles will participate in this year.

“We feel we have a college schedule this year,” St. George said.
