Hoover Invitational

NORTH CANTON _ Kent Roosevelt senior Justin Miller carded an outstanding 4-under-par 66 as the Rough Riders opened the season by winning the 16-team Hoover Invitational at Bob O'Link.

The Riders finished with a team total of 293, while North Canton (299) was second and New Philadelphia (299) third based on the tiebreaker system.

"Justin picked up right where he left off last year," said veteran Kent Roosevelt coach Garry Black of the tournament medalist. "He shot 2-under on each side with a double bogey early in his round. He's very solid and that double bogey didn't faze him at all."

Miller wasn't the only Rider who turned in a solid round.

Steve Fowler (74), Matt Barnard (76) and Tyler Metz (77) also figured into Kent Roosevelt's tourney title.

"It was a pleasant surprise," said Black. "We had several kids playing their first varsity match ever. Matt Barnard and Tyler Metz did very well for their first varsity match, and Steve Fowler played real well."
