On Thursday, April 7, the boy’s golf team traveled to Creston to take on the Panthers in a nine hole match.

The Trojan boys took home the crown with a score of 151 to the Panthers 162. It was a tough day for all golfers as the wind was up to 25 mph and it was cold most of the day.

Head Coach Ed DenBeste said, “If you scored well today, you can play in most weather”.

Even though it was not a good day to play golf, the Trojans were not phased. Junior Jake Olsen checked into the clubhouse with a score anyone would have like to take with the conditions. He shot a 35 (+3). Olsen had some experience with this course and showed it has as he was a medalist at the meet.

Senior Kyle Nelson was a runner-up, who also played well according to DenBeste. He struggled with the first and last holes, but played solid in between to bring in a 37 (+5).

Sophomore Ben Renaud didn’t have the best round, but played out the nine holes and came away with a 39 (+7). Freshman Matt Gearheart was close behind with 40 (+8).

Junior Dawson Walter was competing in his first varsity meet this year at the 6 spot in the lineup. Walter had a solid score but really struggled on a few holes that costed him.

Junior Nate Gifford had also struggled all day, and had to withdraw from the match.
