Boy's Golf Update - April 7-11
May 8, 2014Hallsville High School
The weather has been pretty great this spring...especially compared to last year. But for some reason, mother nature wasn't smiling on us for our first two matches on Mar. 27th and April 3rd of the season as one got canceled halfway through and the other was rescheduled for May 1st.
4/7: Tri-Match at Osage and Lincoln
With a mix of seniors, sophomores, and a freshman and 3 of these golfers having never played before, it was going to be interesting to see how everyone got along and where we would be this season as a golf program. We took 2 losses in our first outing shooting a team score of 222 falling to Lincoln (181) and Osage (182). We were led by Lee March shooting a career low round of 51 and Ryan Tarrence with a 58
On the JV side, we also took 2 losses shooting a team score of 265 falling to Lincoln (227) and Osage (230). 3 of the 4 JV golfers, sophomores Nyk Day and Kaelub Galloway and freshman Clarence Morris started the season with had zero golf experience, so this was new for them in getting their feet wet in competitive golf. Steven Morris led the JV team shooting a 57.
4/9: Match @ Kirksville
After some changes to our roster after the first match, our team continued to look even more different, young, and inexperienced and it showed as we shot a 244 falling to Kirksville who shot a 170. Ryan Tarrence shot a new career low score of 52 as a bright spot on the varsity side.
With the changes to the roster, we were not left with enough golfers to post a JV team score for most of the remainder of the year.
4/11: Varsity @ Osage Invitational Tournament:
The varsity golfers traveled to Osage for their first tournament of the year, finishing 12th of out 16 teams with a team score of 287. This tournament has a different format from the rest we compete in throughout the year as we play one person posting their own score, but the other 4 golfers play in two 2-man scramble teams.
Lee March, playing the lone man, shot a career low tournament round of 100, good for 14th. The team of Ryan Tarrence and Clarence Morris shot an 89, good for a tie for 18th and the team of Michael Culwell and Steven Morris shot a 98, good for a tie for 26th place.
