Senior Nick Gruber fired a 3-under par 69 to key a strong performance by the Moeller golf team Tuesday at Glenview Golf Course, helping the Crusaders capture a school record-tying seventh tournament title this season by taking first place in the Cincinnati East Sectional Championship and earning a team berth in the Division I Southwest District Tournament scheduled for Thursday, October 9, at Weatherwax Golf Course in Middletown.

The top four teams and top four individuals not on qualifying teams in sectional play advance to districts.

Gruber finished just one shot behind sectional medalist Isaac Vock of Loveland.  Gruber’s runner-up finish, combined with solid rounds from Michael O’Brien (74, tied for third place), and teammates Ben Sattler, Quinn Sullivan and Jake Fox (all with 75s, tying for fifth place), enabled the Crusaders to finish with a team score of 293.  Rounding out the team qualifiers were Sycamore (311), Mason and Loveland (315).

Elder, La Salle and St. Xavier are competing today in the Cincinnati West Sectional Championships at Miami Whitewater Golf Course.
