Shank-o-Potomouses win seventh golf league title

The Shank-o-Potamuses exceeded their self-deprecating team name to win the St. Helens Men’s Club Summer Golf League title on Monday.

The squad beat the Tuesday Night champion Lions Club 5-3 to earn their seventh title.

“We’re the oldest team out there,” team captain Gary Wight said. “We’ve been together 33 years—29 as Midway Electric and the last four as Shank-o-Potamuses. This is our seventh title in that time.”

Team members include Wight, David Wight, Bob Fancher, and Bob Grams. They beat the Lions Club team of Jeff Timmons, Jerry Belcher, Mike McCoy and Jimmy Jeffrey.
