• 1969 Wayne County Golf Team

     

    In the past, golf sectionals were done by county rather than by individual schools.  In the spring of 1969, all high schools in Wayne County played a qualifier round at Newark Country Club.  The four lowest individual scores qualified and made up the team which would represent Wayne County in Section V Golf Championship.

     

    The four student-athletes were Jeff Boice, Tim Coluzzi and Bob Santelli, all from Lyons and Jim Witt from Newark.  This team then played all of the other counties from Section V, including Monroe and Seneca.  The Wayne County team defeated every other county, with an 8 stroke win over the closest rival.  This was the only time Wayne County ever won the Section V Golf Championship and three of the four team members were from Lyons.

     

    The team also won individual awards.  The American Legion Golf Award was given to Jeff Boice in 1968-1969, Bob Santelli in 1969-1970 and Tim Coluzzi in 1970-1971.
