MIDDLETOWN — Cameron Willis won the Middletown Invitational in a scorecard playoff against a talented field on Saturday, Aug 28, at Weatherwax Golf Course.

Willis shot a 74 to lead the field, going into the playoff when he sealed victory on the fourth hole. Overall, the Eagles finished with a score of 335, good enough for 10th best of the 22 schools in the field.

Sarah Willis also shot well, and finished with a solid 80. Trevor Pittman finished with an 89, and Sean Hodges ended his round with a 92.

The course was described as being “hard and inconsistent” by Assistant Coach Tim Appledorn, who said it was a good learning experience for when the team goes back in a few week for another tournament.

The weekend invite capped off what was described as a “pretty successful week” by Appledorn, as the team also defeated Monroe on Monday, Aug 24, with a score of 149-174.

C. Willis led the way as the Eagles took down Monroe, shooting a four-under-par 32 at the Eaton Country Club Golf Course. Trevor Pittman had a strong outing, shooting a 37 for one-over-par, followed up by Sarah Willis’ 38, and Max Faddin’s 42.

The JV team also played, beating the Talawanda Braves 207-211. This moved their record to 2-0 on the season. Kasey Wilken led the way with a 48.

Then on Thursday, Aug 27, the team traveled to Brookville but lost 204-206. Houston Durham led the Eagles with a 41.
