CHILLICOTHE, Ohio — For four members of the Meigs golf team, the 2015 season came to an end Thursday at the Division II sectional at Chillicothe Jaycees Golf Course in Ross County. However, Meigs sophomore Levi Chapman’s season will continue for at least another week, as he fired an 83 to qualify for the district tournament.

The sectional tournament was won by Unioto, which fired a 320 team score led by co-medalist Peyton Cooper with a three-over par 75. Other teams qualifying for the district tournament were second place Fairfield Union (321), led by co-medalist Thomas Green, third place Sheridan (334), fourth place Washington (341) and fifth place Logan Elm (342). Along with Chapman, the four other individuals to qualify for the district were Zane Trace’s Brian Chaney (81) and Caleb Arnold (84) and New Lexington’s Kolten Foraker (84) and Brayden Metzger (84).

Chapman, who fired a 40 on the front side and followed it up with a 43 on the back side, led the Marauders with a 14th place finish. MHS junior Chase Whitlatch posted a 91 and finished 34th, Meigs freshman Wyatt Nicholson fired a 97 and finished 45, while MHS senior Evan George rounded out the team total with a 48th place finish and a score of 99. The Marauders’ potential tie-breaking score was 58th place finisher Bryce Swatzel, who posted a 109.

The D-2 district tournament will be held Wednesday, Oct. 7, at Crown Hill Golf Club in Williamsport. The district event will begin at 9 a.m.
