    Schnur paces Hornets at Lion Invitational


    Led by Michael Schnur, who finished tied for 14th place, Kirtland’s golf team on Sunday finished the Notre Dame-Cathedral Latin Lion Invitational with 359 strokes, good for 15th place overall.

    The Hornets competed against mostly larger schools on one of the toughest courses in Northeast Ohio.

    “This was a great tournament on a challenging course,” said Kirtland coach Greg Cosimi. “While we were not happy with our performance overall, we did finish ahead of several larger schools.”

    Schnur fired a 77 to tie three others for 14th place. He was just seven strokes behind tournament champion Kyle Horvath of Lake Catholic.

    “Michael played a great round,” Cosimi said. “With the exception of the seventh hole, he minimized mistakes and shot a very solid 77.”

    Adam Mueller finished 71st with a score of 92 while Brian Beres was right behind him with a 93, good for 77th place. Michael Knezevic carded a 97 (83rd overall) and Daniel Heimsoth shot a 106 (92nd).

    Canton Central Catholic edged Lake Catholic, 307-308, to win the team championship. St. Ignatius was third with 314 strokes.

    “Our golfers had the opportunity to see a different type of competition than they normally do,” Cosimi said.

    The Hornets return to action on Wednesday when they host Hawken.
