Fairbanks High School’s Alex Crowe has earned honors for the Heart of Ohio Junior Golf Association.
Crowe was named the association’s top scholar for the recently-completed 2021 campaign.
As such, Crowe has earned the annual David J. Wensinger Player of the Year $2,000 scholarship.
Crowe earned the most points for the season and finished with the low-scoring average of 73 in the 16-18 age bracket.
One of Fairbanks High School’s top golfers over the past couple of seasons, Crowe came through with standout performances during the Heart of Ohio campaign.
He placed in the top three in most of the tournaments.
Among the highlights of Crowe’s campaign were first-place finishes during tournaments at the Marysville Golf Club and in Bucyrus.
He carded scores of 71 during both of those events.
Crowe finished as the runner-up during an event at Kings Mills a couple of weeks ago.
He tallied a score of 74 and tied with Minoy Shah of Marion Pleasant at the end of regulation play.
Shah won a one-hole playoff to capture the championship.
Crowe will be among Heart of Ohio Golfers who will be recognized during a banquet on Wednesday.
The event will be held at Kings Mills Golf Course in Waldo, beginning with a 6:30 p.m. check-in.
Awards and scholarships will be presented.
The banquet culminates the organization’s camp and a seven-tournament series that was conducted during the months of June and July.
