WILLIAMSPORT ā€” It was certainly not Chamber of Commerce weather on Tuesday for the Pickaway County tournament at Crown Hill Golf Club.

While the temperature was enjoyable for mid-August in the low 70s, the moderate to heavy rain that the players had to persevere through on a number of holes was not.

But that didn’t matter for the Circleville Tigers, who shot a new 18-hole program record of 348 to win the county tournament for the first time in program history.

Circleville’s Elaina Seeley putts on Tuesday from the 17th hole during the county tournament at Crown Hill Golf Club.

“I was extremely pleased with the mental toughness our girls showed tonight, overcoming a bit of a rough start and the weather to post such a low team score,” Circleville coach Eric Evans said. “One of our goals coming into the season was to claim the county championship trophy for the first time in our program’s history, so we are very happy to get that done.”

Senior Elaina Seeley earned county medalist honors with a scorecard of 72, beating out a pair of stiff challenges by Westfall junior Paige Weiss (73) and Teays Valley junior Adison Abele (74).

Izzy Seeley followed her sister with 88, Isabelle Perini shot 90 and Lis Sharp turned in a career-best round of 98.

“Elaina claiming medalist honors tonight as well as Lis breaking 100 for the first time in her career were also definite highlights today in our win,” Evans noted.

Caroline Sever followed Weiss with a 93, Marianna Packer tallied 97 and Alexa Oney shot 108.

Teays Valley finished in third with 398.

Teays Valley’s Adison Abele putts on the 17th hole during the county tournament.

Brooklynn Lowry followed Abele by shooting 105, Makinna Pinion turned in a scorecard of 109 and Taylor Strawser fired a 110.

Logan Elm also participated in the tournament but did not post a team score.
