The YAIAA Division III high school golf teams held their first tournament of the season Thursday afternoon at Mountain View Golf Club in Fairfield.
Looking around the clubhouse after the event, it wasn't hard to find which coach had the winning team.
Delone Catholic's second-year head coach Mike Berry couldn't contain his big grin as he congratulated his players on the win and moved them to the team van and their pizza reward.
"This is my first tournament win," Berry said. "There was no way I could have imagined winning like this. I thought York Catholic would be lower and I definitely thought Bermudian Springs would have a better score."
What Berry got from his young Squires was a 20-stroke win, 415-435,
Leading the way for the Squires was Casey Bird with a 7-over-par 78, The next four golfers -- Ross Hockenberry, Connor Faloon, Brandon Hill and John Golanoski -- all had scores in the 80s.
"We don't have anyone who is going to shot a real low score, but we have six guys who can shoot in the 80s," Berry said. "I am completely happy because the kids played well. It's not going to be like this every week, but we are solid with one senior and five juniors."
There probably isn't anyone in the league who will shoot a low enough score to challenge week in and week out for medalist honors with Fairfield's Isaiah Logue. All Logue did Thursday was shoot a 6-under 65 and take medalist honors by
Taylor's 72 was even more amazing because his scorecard had only three pars. He surrounded those pars with eight bogeys and seven birdies.
"It's tough to beat Isaiah out here," Taylor said. "It's tough to beat him anywhere, but this is his home course. He lives right across the street. He didn't miss a shot, and he is really good. I can't complain about my score because I got some really lucky breaks.
"If I can play like this every time, and I know that Garrett (Cook) can go lower, I think he had a 10 on his last hole, we will be right there at the end."
The Hanover Nighthawks took fourth place with 482 strokes. The Hawks also lost their No. 3 player, Josh Martin, when he separated a shoulder on a swing. Their top score came from No. 2 player John Geiselman, who put together a round of 85.
The York Catholic Fighting Irish, while finishing third in the tournament, are expected to be a factor in the league standings. They were able to have five players put up double-digit scores.
The tournament was the replay of one started Monday. Despite teams having completed 11 holes before rain stopped play, they had to start over because all of the teams had not played at least seven common holes.
