The Scout golfers competed in a home nine-hole dual against Lakeview on Tues., Apr. 10. The Varsity team scored 184 to Lakeview’s 169, and the JV team scored 241 against two Lakeview teams who scored 220 and 231.

For Varsity, junior Will Danielson shot a 42, freshman Jordan Kracl shot a 45, junior Wiley Hein shot a 48, freshman Ethan Zegers shot a 49, and junior Cody Sabata shot a 77. For JV, freshman Cavan Navrkal shot a 57, junior Preston Beringer shot a 59, freshman Kordell Abel shot a 62, sophomore Hunter Betzen shot a 63, sophomore Spencer Allen shot a 70, sophomore Anthony Scribner shot a 72, and freshman David Maxwell shot a 75.

“We have been practicing as much as we can, weather allowing,” Danielson said. “So when we get the chance to go outside we try and make the most of it. The team has been playing well, but I feel like each member can still improve by a few strokes.”

The golfers then competed in the Patriot Invite in Leigh on Wed., Apr. 11 where they placed second with a score of 356, only being short of first place by two strokes. In the top ten, Kracl placed second with a score of 81, Hein placed fifth with a score of 86, and Danielson placed ninth with a score of 87.

“I was extremely proud of the golfers in competing very well at the Leigh invite,” Coach Tom Van Winkle said. “For us to have three golfers medal and the team get second, we have to be doing something right.”

The Scout golfers will be at the Bishop Neumann Triangular on Tues., Apr. 17, and then they host the DC Invite on Mon., Apr., 23, which was originally scheduled for Wed., Apr. 18.

“I think that most of the golf team needs some work in their short games,” Van Winkle said. “Chipping and putting are so essential to shooting a good golf score, and there are quite a few individuals that need to put the time in and improve their game so that the team can become even more competitive.”
