The importance of how one stroke can mean so much was never more evident than Monday in the Ralph Hohenstein Classic at the Green Hills golf course.
When all the scores were recorded in the18-hole tournament it was the host Fliers sitting on top — by one shot — over Sandusky Bay Conference rival Perkins with a 312 total for the low four scores among the five participants on each team.
While Clyde won it first team crown in the three years, Perkins senior Nate Foss emerged as the medalist with a fine even par round of 71, despite a double bogey on the closing hole (No. 18).
Clyde had the runner-up in the individual department in senior Garret Rupert with 39-34—73.
Huron’s Keegan Bollenbacher, another junior, finished fifth with 38-38—76.
Bellevue had a pair of players in the 70s.
Dylan DeWitt registered 37-41—78.
Ålex Bixler paced the Chargers with 40-38—78.
