Mayle Advances to District as Louisville Takes 7th at Tannenhauf Sectional – Boys Golf
Louisville 333 (7th Out of 15)
<<< Previous Vs. Cloverleaf | Boys Golf Schedule | Next DI Pine Hills District >>>
“Sectional tournament (day) started with a very nice gesture from our girl’s golfers leaving the fellas a gift on the van and an extra long breakfast at Bob Evans waiting out the hour and a half fog delay. The day finished, after some nail biting, with a District Qualifier as an individual in Jack Mayle.”
– Head Coach Mike McFerren
Mayle Youngest LHS District Qualifier Since 2006
Mayle is the youngest district qualifier for Louisville since Jay Hollifield qualified as a sophomore in 2006. Mayle is the Leopards fifth district qualifier since 2011 overall.
Louisville Boys Golf District Qualifiers Since 2011
“One of the first things discussed after the round was that we are off school on Monday when Jack will go to Pine Hills in Hinckley and the rest of the boys asking if they could go up with us. These boys are truly the best of friends and they are amazing young men. I can’t wait to start getting Jack ready for Pine Hills and to see what he can do on a brand new course.”
– Head Coach Mike McFerren
Future is Bright as Sophomores Lead Leopards
Louisville’s top three scorers were sophomores and all five sectional participants were underclassmen. Sophomore Zach Root started off strong with a 39 on the front nine and finished in a three-way tie for 25th while carding an 82 for the day. Fellow sophomore Cole Miller also finished in a three-way tie for 35th with a final tally of 85.
Junior Sam Karcher rounded out the Leopards scoring by posting an 89 to finish tied for 47th. Fellow junior Caleb Harsh finished just outside the scoring by shooting a 90 in taking 50th individually against a field of 77 Division I golfers.
“We lose nobody off this team, we gained experience, and I hope we gained some understanding where we need to improve in order to get where we want to go next year.”
– Head Coach Mike McFerren
Jackson Edges Green for Sectional Title
The Jackson Polar Bears finished as sectional runner-up a year ago to the 2020 DI Tannenhauf Sectional Champion Green Bulldogs. Jackson flipped the script Tuesday by beating out Green by two strokes to claim the title with a team score of 303. The Polar Bears finished with 4 golfers in the top 6 led by sophomore Jordan Kish who shot 3 over par 75 to finish tied for third place individually with Lake junior Jack Armstrong and North Canton Hoover freshman Daniel Gambone.
Green was led by senior Matthew Stephan who carded a 1 over par 73 to finish as the individual runner-up as the Bulldogs shot 305 as a team. The North Canton Hoover Vikings shot 314 to place third and the Boardman Spartans tallied a team score of 317 to claim fourth place. Jackson, Green, North Canton Hoover, and Boardman all qualify for the DI District Tournament as a team with their top four finish.
Best finish Since 2014 for Louisville
“Last Year at Tannenhauf we shot 377. I share that to discuss the progress made. Today we shot 333, which wasn’t good enough for the team to qualify, but I left with a smile on my face because we represented ourselves so much better than last year.”
-Head Coach Mike McFerren
The Leopards placed 10th as a team a season ago and ninth in both 2018 and 2019. Their seventh place finish in this year’s sectional tournament is their best since placing fifth in 2014.

Curtis Shoots Even Par to Win Individual Title
Kent Roosevelt freshman Liam Curtis was the individual sectional champion taking medalist honors by a single stroke after shooting even par 72 for the day. Austintown Fitch senior Dom Kapics shot 77 to match Mayle in 11th place. Curtis, Armstrong, Kapics, and Mayle will all compete at Pine Hills Monday as individual district qualifiers (top four not on a qualifying team).
“I hate to see the season end for the rest of you, but I know that you will be hungry as you prepare for next year. Going to miss the crazy van rides, the constant ‘good natured’ ribbing of each other, and simply getting to be around such a great group of guys. You guys truly rejuvenated me this year!”
– Head Coach Mike McFerren,
UP NEXT: District Qualifier Jack Mayle will next complete individually at the DI Pine Hills District Tournament on Monday, October 11. Tournament is set to begin at 9:00 AM from Pine Hills Golf Club in Hinckley, Ohio.
