Lima, OH – Going into the ORC State Tourney the Barons had a great game plan. They hoped to stay close to the leaders the 1st day(Friday at Colonial golf course) and over take the leaders on their home course(Hawthorne Hills) on the 2nd day. After day 1 the Barons trailed OU Lancaster by 1 stroke and OSU Newark by 7 strokes. On Saturday, they were playing very well on the first 7 holes to move in to 2nd place and very close to tournament leader OSU Newark. All was going great until "Mother Nature" decided to take over and the Barons watched 3 inches of rain fall in 30 minutes. The dream of winning a State Tourney was now over and the results from Friday were used as the final results.
“We had a really good year, we got better every weekend, and we were playing our best golf as we entered the State Tourney, that’s the mark of a good team. I am already looking forward to next year,” said Head Golf Coach Jim Maley.
The final results from Friday were 1-OSU Newark 307 2- OU Lancaster 313 3-OSU Lima/Rhodes State 314 4- Akron Wayne 326.
Lima scores Friday were JJ Hollar 76 Brady Schroeder 77 Eric Numbers 82 Shane Lumpkins 79 Clark Luginbuhl 85.
Announced at the tournament were the regular season honors as Brady Schroeder and Eric Numbers both made the 2011 ORCC 2nd team.
