Central Ohio could see more golfers reach state in Division I

More golfers from central Ohio may have a chance to compete in the Division I boys and girls state tournaments this fall.

An influx of teams from the East/Southeast District means an additional team and individual will qualify for state from both the Central District boys tournament at Apple Valley and the girls tournament at New Albany Links.

For the boys, it will be the first time since 2014 that the top three teams and the top three individuals not on those qualifying teams will advance from district to state in Division I. The girls will have three teams and three individuals for the first time since 2005, when the state consisted of one division.

“We have always been around 44 (boys) teams and have been as high as 48 (at district), but the additional teams (from the East/Southeast District) have pushed us (to 53),” said Larry Morris, who is the Central District boys and girls golf tournament director. “The girls have also taken on some teams (49 total), and they have also added another team and an individual to state.”
