Boo Timko came within a stroke of his goal - winning a state title.
"I'd like to win it and I have a very good chance," Timko said in an interview last week.
"There's some really great players down there," Canfield coach Mike Murphy said last week. "He's got a great chance of being an individual medalist."
The Canfield junior shot a 36-39-75 at The Ohio State University Scarlet Course at the Division I state golf tournament in Columbus last weekend.
This was Timko's third straight state tournament. He qualified as a freshman and sophomore for John F. Kennedy's golf team in Division III. This is his highest finish.
West Chester Lakota West's Korey Ward was the medalist - shooting 4-over par (37-37-74).
Incidentally, Timko played Saturday in a threesome with Ward.
Timko finished in a four-way tie for first with Columbus St. Charles' Nate Yankovich 40-35-75, Cincinnati Moeller's Andrew Dorn 39-36-75 and Sidney's Zach Yinger 36-39-75.
Columbus St. Charles beat Cincinnati St. Xavier for the team title, 309-313.
The tournament is usually a 36-hole format, but Friday's inclement weather forced it to be a 18-hole tournament. This is the second time in Ohio High School Athletic Association history the tournament has been forced to go only 18 holes.
