THOMPSONVILLE — The TC Tee Off trophy is staying in Traverse City for once. 

The Traverse City Central boys golf team earned its first TC Tee Off team championship since 2004 Saturday at Crystal Mountain's Mountain Ridge course. 

The Trojans came back from down nine strokes entering Saturday to win the event by 15 strokes over Traverse City West and 16 strokes over East Grand Rapids, who was the leader after day one at Betsie Valley. 

TC Central shot 330 as a team Friday and was in third place before Saturday's shotgun start. The Trojans dropped 28 strokes to card a 302 as a team to take first place with a combined score of 632. TC West took second (229-318-647) and East Grand Rapids fell to third (321-327-648). 

The Division 3/4 title was taken by Traverse City St. Francis with a two-day total of 679, followed by Charlevoix with 684 and Big Rapids at 707. 

"They've done this a couple of times where the first day they don't play so well and the second day the drop a bunch of strokes," Central head coach Lois McManus said of her team. "The boys are all excited but I don't think they are as excited as the parents, coaches and friends." 

Cheboygan's PJ Maybank was the overall medalist for all divisions for the weekend, totaling a 146 over two days. Charlevoix's Jake Beaudoin was third lowest overall with a 152 and Cadillac's Harry Chipman was in fourth with a 153. TC Central's top golfer Shea Harmeson took fifth overall with a 154.
