Curtis Craig drives ball

Curtis Craig hits the ball during their season-opening meet. Craig led the way for the North Penn-Mansfield golf team on Monday, Sept. 21 shooting an 87 on the day as the Tigers remain undefeated.

In the fourth NTL golf meet of the season, the North Penn-Mansfield golf team (23-0) continued to dominate the NTL and picked up another win in their undefeated season shooting a team score of 361 on the day to win by 24 strokes.

Mansfield was led by Curtis Craig who put together a day shooting an 88 and was a top-five golfer at the Tioga Country Club. Reece White also had a strong day on the course, shooting an 89 and also cracking the top-five for the day.

Ethan Weiskopff and Andrew Green also had strong days shooting a 90 and 94 respectively and Alex Stein shot a sub-100 day with a 97 to round out the top performers for the NTL-best Mansfield golf team.

The Wellsboro Hornets (18-5) have bounced back since a disappointing third place finish in their first contest of the year and have taken second place in every meet since.

A lot of the credit for righting the ship goes to senior Brock Hamblin who for the third time this season led all golfers shooting an 81 on the day to lead his team. Hamblin has been one of, if not the top, golfer up to this point in the NTL, shooting an average of 80.5 (NTL best) and has been easily the most consistent player so far this season with his low on the season sitting at 79 and his high being an 81.

Sophomore Reece Servatius also had a strong day on the greens, adding a score of 92 on the day to help lead the Wellsboro team to a second place finish on the day.

The Cowaneque Valley Indians (13-10) rounded out the top three spots on the day, falling just short to the Hornets by just 14 strokes for a third place finish on the day,

The seniors on the Indians team Joel Heck and Skylar Smith led the way for CV, shooting an 88 and 97 respectively to keep them anchored in the third spot of the NTL standings.

So far this season, area teams have dominated and convincingly hold the top three spots in the standings. With Mansfield still sitting undefeated, the rest of the NTL will take a crack at besting them as they travel to Waverly, N.Y. on Wednesday Sept. 23 for their second meet of the week.
