TROY — Before Thursday’s Division I district boys golf tournament, the Troy Trojans got one last chance to see what they need to work on.
Troy coach Mark Evilsizor said that there are a few things.
Troy finished third at the four-team Troy Invitational Fall Classic Monday at Troy Country Club, an event that had previously been rained out earlier this season. The Trojans shot a 330, finishing behind Springboro’s 300 and Butler’s 306.
Nate Uhlenbrock led the Trojans with a 79 on the day, Holden Scribner shot an 82, Jack Johnston shot 83, Ryan McClurg and Austin Rank shot 86s and Keaton Pfeiffer shot 93.
“Our scores were not good, being honest with you,” Evilsizor said. “We were hoping to have a good day. We’ve got a few kinks to work out still.
“We just had too many high scores … but it was nice to get a competitive round in between the sectional and a district. There’s a big lull between. And were were thankful for the Troy Country Club to allow us to host this at their course.”
Tippecanoe’s Bradley Calhoun, an individual qualifier to the district tournament, shot the fourth-best score on the day with a 74.
The district tournament will be held Thursday at Beavercreek Golf Club.

* Boys Soccer
Bethel 2, KR 0
BRANDT — The Bethel boys soccer team, already having clinched a share of its league title, built some momentum heading into its final regular season matchup with a 2-0 victory over Kenton Ridge on Monday.
Korry Hamlin gave the Bees (10-4-1) the lead with an unassisted goal, then Daniel Ross added an insurance score on a feed from Tyler Brueckman.
“This was a good win for us tonight,” Bethel coach Bob Hamlin said. “Kenton Ridge (3-8-3) is a very good soccer team, and don’t let the record fool you. We were out of sync against their flat four, kept trying to go for the home run instead of working the ball and finding slots. This is the type of win you need right before the tournament.”
Bethel travels to Twin Valley South Thursday night with a chance to clinch the outright Cross County Conference title.
* Girls Soccer
MIAMISBURG — After a 2-0 loss at home to Centerville Saturday night, the Troy girls soccer team dropped a narrow 1-0 decision at Miamisburg on Monday — both of which were potential sectional tournament matchups.
The Trojans (7-6-2) could see Miamisburg in the second round of the Division I sectional tournament and Centerville in the sectional title game, should the seeding play out with no upsets.
Troy finishes the regular season Wednesday night at Piqua.
TIPP CITY — Tippecanoe lost its second game of the season Monday night, falling 5-0 to visiting Beavercreek — which is the No. 2 seed in the upcoming Division I sectional tournament.
The Red Devils (11-2-1), the No. 3 seed in the D-II tournament, travel to Butler Wednesday and Wayne Saturday to close out the regular season.
Other scores: Newton 0, Dayton Christian 0.
