Pettisville Golf Returns Five Letterwinners

Five letterwinners return for Mike Zimmerman, Pettisville golf coach, from a team that tied for second in the Buckeye Border Conference last year with a 4-2 record and was the BBC tournament champion.

Overall, the Birds finished 67-27 last year.

Returning are junior twoyear letterwinners Max Leppelmeier, Tommy McWatters, Caleb Nafziger, Jake King, and Josh Horning.

Leppelmeier was First Team All-BBC, First Team All-District, and tied for 20th place at the Division III state tournament.

McWatters was First Team All-BBC, and honorable mention in the district.

Nafziger, King, and Horning all received honorable mentions in the district.

“As a team we were very close to our first league title and first district tournament as a team,” said Zimmerman. “I think our guys are hungry to take our program to the next level.

“We will be working heavily on course management this year. Our players have put substantial time in the summer working on their ball striking and competing.

“We are hoping to compete for the first-ever league title for the school among a strong group at the top of the BBC.”

The Birds were scheduled to open the season, Monday, Aug. 5, at the Defiance Invitational.
