Boys Varsity Golf
Congratulations to Drew on a great effort at the State Tournament!!
Drew battled the wind, tree lined fairways and SLOW greens to an 85 on the first day at Swope Memorial. He hit it well and stayed even keel all day long! Day 2 is a chance to make adjustments and see what the golf game does on the last day of the season!!
Congratulations to Drew Schwager who shot a 77 in Poplar Bluff and qualified to play in the State Golf Tournament at Swope Memorial Golf Course in KC, MO next Monday and Tuesday.
Congratulations also to Charlie and Will who both played in the event but did not qualify to play the next event! Great seasons by all.
WG finished in 6th of the 9 teams present, but in a loaded district that is not a bad thing! We were able to ge THREE golfers through to the Sectional tournament in Poplar Bluff next Monday. That event is the qualifier for the State Tournament. CONGRATULATIONS to Charlie, Drew and Will on advancing.
Charlie earned All-District honors for finishing in the top 15 of all golfers at the tournament. Will becomes the FIRST freshman in my 17 year tenure to advance out of a district tournament and Drew advances for the 2nd year in a row to the Sectional Tournament! Job well done boys!! Noah and Jake were also at the Landings competing at the District tournament.
Statesmen take 2nd place behind team champion Pioneers. Charlie finishes in 3rd, Drew 7th and Noah 9th in the event. Charlie earns first team all conference honors, Drew and Noah earn 2nd team all conference honors for their play all season during conference events!
WG finished in 4th place at the Summit Invitational at Paradise Valley G.C.. Timberland, CBC and Kirkwood finished ahead of the Statesmen. Nick Brown shot an 88 and earned a 12th place individual medal for his play! Jake, Caleb, John and Adam were also participants at the event.
