F-F H.S. Highlights: Mikell McGee scores 8 goals
The streak is now 205 and counting.
The Chambersburg golf team concluded its regular season Monday with a Mid Penn Colonial Division match at Chambersburg Country Club and won over Big Spring by 27 strokes.
That wrapped up the Trojans' eighth consecutive division championship and ran their winning streak to 205 matches.
"It's been a fun season - the kids responded to the challenge," Chambersburg coach Mark Yost said. "They enjoyed the year and continued the tradition."
Karsen Rush posted a 1-under par round of 72 to earn medalist honors and Trojan teammate Luke Ocker shot 77.
"It was good to see Luke have a good round on his home course," Yost said.
The second-best score was a 76 by James Buchanan's Jacob Suder.
Rocket coach Mark Wise said, "Jacob played a great round. He even said he could have been lower with a few putts he just missed, but it is good to play this well in his last regular season match as a high school golfer. Also, Caleb Reath (92) - a freshmen - is on the cusp of qualifying for Mid Penns."
In the team race, Greencastle-Antrim was third and JB fourth. For the season, Northern York was second, Waynesboro third and G-A fourth.
