Shenandoah 173, Wapahani 211, Cowan 229Shenandoah traveled to Maplewood Golf Course Friday evening and won a three-way meet against Delaware County schools Wapahani and Cowan.
Shenandoah’s Andrew Bennett shot a 41 to become medalist of the meet. Cohen Shores (43), Ryan Craig (44), and Jordan Zody (45) completed the scoring for the Raiders from Henry County.
“The weather was beautiful, 82 degrees with a light breeze,” stated Shenandoah Coach Thomas Zimmer. “Andrew had five pars and three bogies, but managed the course well tonight with only 14 putts. The par-5 hole No. 13 gave the team a little bit of a problem with an average of 6.4 strokes, but we played better on the par-3 holes than normal. The greens were a little slow, especially for the heat with a putting average of 16.8.”
Shenandoah improved to 12-2 on the year, with a second-place MEC finish, first-place Henry County finish, fourth-place at the Delta Invite, and fifth-place at the Monroe Central Invite.
Raiders 19th at Muncie Central InviteShenandoah traveled a little bit north Saturday to play in the Muncie Central Invitational and finished 19th out of 22 teams with a score of 383. The Raiders right behind Oak Hill (380) and ahead of host Muncie Central (405), Frankton (411) and Marion (440).

Andrew Bennett led Shenandoah for the second meet in a row with a 94. Jordan Zody also shot a 94, Ryan Craig came in with a 95, Cohen Shores shot 100, and Landon Harter had a 103.
“Andrew had some great lag putts, and stuck quite a few greens with his approach shot,” Shenandoah Coach Thomas Zimmer stated, “and Jordan learned how to refocus when it mattered most. Our boys are learning when to lay up and how to read greens before you get on them. I saw some great shots throughout the day from all five Raiders. Unfortunately, we all need to eliminate those pesky OB penalty strokes and 3-putts.”
