Evening Sun Report

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.
