CELINA, Ohio — The Patriots haven’t seen most of the other Allen County Athletic Conference teams this season due to cancellations.

In the conference tournament, only the Adams County schools did better.

The Jay County High School boys golf team finished with a score of 365 for third place at the ACAC Tournament on Saturday, held at Celina Lynx Golf Club.

Adams Central just beat out South Adams for the top spot by two strokes. The Jets finished with a 355, while the Starfires scored 357. The Patriots beat Woodlan for third by just one stroke.

Over the course of 18 holes, Caleb DeRome shot an 81 to tie Heritage’s Jake Dalman, for the top score of the day.

Gage Sims secured the only other score under 90, with 89 strokes.

Cody DeHoff and Isaac Homan rounded out the team score with a 97 and 98, respectively.

Liam Garringer’s 100 strokes did not affect the team score.


Rockets open

The Portland Rockets finished 1-2 over opening weekend against the South Bend Royals.

The Rockets dropped the season opener on Saturday and the first game of Sunday’s doubleheader 5-4. They finally broke through in the second game on Sunday with a 2-0 victory.

The opener went into extra innings, and the Royals took a 5-3 lead in the top of the 11th. The runs scored on a single and a fielder’s choice against Sam Dunlavy. The Rockets got one back on a sacrifice fly, but couldn’t tie the game up.

A three-run fourth inning decided the first game on Sunday. Garrison Brege gave up five singles to allow the runs to score.

Cade Meade got the Rockets on the board with a bases-loaded walk in the first inning of the win. Joel Kennedy later blasted a solo home run to reach the final score.


Tournament win

FORT WAYNE — Katie Rowles, a sophomore at Jay County, won the under-16 USA Wrestling Central Regional Championship on Saturday at Allen County War Memorial Coliseum.

This tournament is a precursor to the USA Wrestling National Championships held in Fargo, North Dakota in July. Taking the top spot will help Rowles with seeding in for the ultimate tournament in two months.
