Rising Sun golfers win ORVC title by one stroke


Coach Brian Graham and his Rising Sun Shiner golf team edged Milan for the 2015 Ohio River Valley Conference tournament Saturday at Hoosier Links Golf Club in Milan.

Rising Sun had a season best front nine but had to wait out the final scorecard before finding itself a one stroke, 331-332 winner.

A tie would have given Milan the title with their fifth man scoring a 94 to a 106 by Shiner Brent Turner.

Jac-Cen-Del’s Lucas Williams was individual medalist with a 77.

The other team scores included: Jac-Cen-Del 372; Switzerland County 391; Southwestern 400; Shawe Memorial 436; and South Ripley 487.

Rising Sun was led by Brady Murray with a 78; followed by Austin Armstrong 79, Sam Markland 87 and Aron Walker 87 – all earning All-Conference honors.

Milan placed four golfers on the 12 member all-conference team, led by Travis Butte’s 80, a pair of 81s by Eli Schmitt and Paul Hawk and Drew Honnert 90.

Other all-conference members included: Evan Borgman (Jac-Cen-Del) 87; Nick Braun (Switzerland County) 88; and Southwestern’s Andrew Huff 90.

Other Switzerland County scorers included: Dustin Tice 97, Nate Braun 100, Josh Tice 106 and Hunter Hayes 118.

Rising Sun was to host its own invitational Wednesday and compete in the Madison Regional on Monday June 8th.
