MARATHON – On the heels of the Norwich tennis team’s first section title in two decades, the Purple Tornado golf team captured its first Section IV Class B title since the 1995 season rolling to a 35-stroke victory over runner-up Susquehanna Valley, Monday at Maple Hill Golf Club in Marathon.
The Class B and Class C tournaments ran concurrently, and the Tornado’s five-person score of 429 was the lowest overall team score. Eric Walling, the lone senior in Norwich’s starting lineup, shared co-medalist honors with an 80 over the tough par-70 layout. “I think some of the kids struggled with the greens. They’re pretty tricky,” said Norwich coach Bob Branham. “Most of the kids’ scores were where we expected them to be.”
