There is a lot that is going to be new for the Central DeWitt boys golf team as it traverses its first fall season.

But the Sabers found some familiar sights when it hosted North Scott Tuesday.

The MAC dual was the first home meet of the year for the Sabers, which meant they were playing the same Springbrook Country Club holes they practice on.

And though the Lancers were a new foe, they are led by an old face — Collin Ellis, the former Central DeWitt boys coach who led them to a pair of state titles.

Finally, after a few weeks of late summer conditions, the Sabers got a taste of some spring weather, playing in cool showers that are typically meant for producing May flowers.

There was even a familiar face at the top of the leaderboard as Sabers senior Dylan McAleer continued his fine season with a medalist round of 36.

The next six-lowest scores, however, belonged to the Lancers, who used them to secure a 165-183 victory.

Senior Koal Bossom added a 47 for the Sabers, while Ben Alger and Alex Tuttle wrapped up the Sabers’ team score with matching 50s.

Freshman Nate McGarry was just a stroke back, while Briar Baxter capped everything off with a 52.
