Carrollton kicked off the 2020 high school golf season with a win at the Dennison Yard Tuscarawas Central Catholic (TCC) Invitational Aug. 5 and followed it up with a non-league win the next day over Malvern.

The Warriors slipped past New Philadelphia 336-339 to claim the TCC Invitational title, led by Jaxon Rinkes with a four-over-par 76. Colton Moore carded an 81, followed by John Birong, 90, and Caden Rininger, 86. Sam Santille of Harrison Central shot a 74 to earn medalist honors.

Carrollton Coach Chris Barto said he received the news the Warriors won the 15-team tournament late in the evening.

“Because of COVID-19 restrictions, the teams were not permitted to gather for lunch and the final results,” Barto stated. “It was a great way to start the season.”
