Northfield finished fifth, and Manchester was seventh at the Warsaw boys golf sectional to end both teams’ seasons.

Warsaw captured the event shooting 309. Northfield shot 329, while Manchester shot 338.

But Manchester freshman Harley Kruschwitz will continue his season, advancing as an individual with the second best overall score, and the top score among those not advancing with teams.

Kruschwitz shot a 36 on the front nine and a 39 on the back for a 75 and will compete at the Warsaw Regional at Stonehenge Golf Club on Thursday.

The Squires started on the back nine where Kruschwitz parred the first three holes, but shot four bogeys for a 39. He rebounded on the front nine with two birdies and two pars on the first four holes and closed out his round with a birdie on number eight and a par on number nine.

Also for Manchester, Parker Wagoner shot a 44-41-85, while Nathan Self also shot a 44-41-85.

Konrad Borgmann shot a 48-45-93, and Klayton Hendrix shot a 51-51-102.

Northfield capped off a strong season, playing in the first group with sectional winner Warsaw and runner-up Plymouth. The Norse shot a 329 as a team, using team balance to keep pace with the front-runners.

Austin Trump shot a 39-41-80, while Caleb Kroh shot a 40-40-80 to lead Northfield.

Logan Peas shot a 40-44-84 in the number five group, while Isaac Gottschalk shot a 44-41-85, and Kameron Cole shot a 48-41-89.
