Staff report

If things were to fall apart down the stretch, the Western Reserve Academy would still finish the 2016 season with a winning percentage of close to 55 percent.

Such a percentage probably isn't what the Pioneers have in mind when they eventually put their golf clubs away for the season.

That's because Reserve was undefeated as of press time.

WRA improved to 11-0 with a commanding 164-216 victory over Cleveland Benedictine Sept. 16 at Fowler's Mill Golf Course in Chesterland.

Zach Mandry led the Pioneers with a score of 39 to earn medalist honors.

His teammate, Emily Root, was just one shot behind with a 40. Also contributing to Reserve's team score were Paul Schumacher (41) and Michael Pamer (44).

On Sept. 15, WRA earned a 154-171 win over Beachwood at Brandywine Golf Course in Peninsula.

Mandry received medalist honors after shooting a 34 and Schumacher shot a 35.

Root (42) and Ben Kishore (43) also contributed to the Pioneers' team score.
