Van Wert needed a tiebreaker to decide the Western Buckeye League boys golf tournament over St. Marys on Thursday.
Van Wert and St. Marys each finished play with matching 334s on the Roughriders' home course at Northmoor. The fifth-golfer tiebreak went the Cougars' way, 94-95, to give the Cougars a sweep of the regular season and tournament titles and the outright league championship.
Bath and Shawnee each finished with matching 349s, with Bath, coached by Celina graduate Sean Boley, winning the tiebreaker to take the eight third-place points in the league standings. Defiance was fifth with a 352 with Ottawa-Glandorf sixth at 357. Elida (361), Wapakoneta (363), Celina (371) and Kenton (373) rounded out the team leaderboard.
In the individual race for tournament medalist and Golfer of the Year honors, Elida's Carson Harmon tamed the course on a windy, chilly day. After shooting a 38 on the front nine, Harmon came in off the back nine with a 33 to finish with an even-par 71 to win the tournament and lock up his third WBL Golfer of the Year award based on points won during the regular season duals and tournament.
