BEAVERCREEK — Ryan Flick helped the Beavercreek golf team knock down the Clayton Northmont Thunderbolts by a score of 154-176, Thursday at the Beavercreek Golf Club.
Flick claimed medalist honors with a 35.
Beavercreek (6-0, 2-0 GWOC Central) looks to be strong contender for the Greater Western Ohio Conference boys golf title. They began their season off undefeated in both the conference and non-conference matchups.
With help from Adam Gill, Alex Flick, Nick Knisley and Drew Prater, the Beavers have all the depth they need to claim the GWOC title.
Beavercreek set a school record this year in an Aug. 21 GWOC South match with Huber Heights Wayne, when all five of their golfers shot a 10-under total, combining for a team-record score of 134.
Flick recently announced his verbal commitment to the University of Dayton to play collegiate golf under head coach Gip Hoagland.
“It was a really good fit for both golf and academics, which is really important to me because I get a good education and get to play on a high-level golf team,” he said.
Flick’s high school coach, Chris Nartker, said Ryan has “gotten so much stronger mentally in the past two years, which makes his physical talents shine so much more.”
Despite Flick’s already apparent high school golf abilities, Nartker said Flick is “already so dedicated and will only keep getting better and better, even throughout his collegiate career.”
The Beavercreek boys will next take on Springfield Shawnee at 1 p.m. Saturday at Reid Park.
