Boonville golfer Brayden Page recorded his second meet medalist honor, and the Pirates won their second match in as many outings Tuesday night by beating the California Pintos by four strokes 180-184.
Although both teams were missing their No. 1 golfer on Tuesday, head coach Rob VanderLinden said the last five years the matches have all been within five strokes of each other.
“It was our first home and conference match of the year,” VanderLinden said. “The last five years we’ve had good matches with California and the team scores have all been within five strokes. Today was no different. Like the previous night, we had a couple golfers shoot their personal best to help us with the win. Cole Corbitt, Tyler Schuster and Adam Schneringer shot their personal low scores for the second match in a row. It’s always nice to get the win but it is more exciting for me to see the kids improving.”
As for Page, the junior golfer fired a 8 over par 43 for nine holes with two pars and six bogeys.
Each team had three golfers in the top five for the meet, with senior Adam Schneringer finished second overall with a score of 44 with two pars and six bogeys. Enoch Dunnaway of California placed third with a scdore of 45 while Tyler Schuster of Boonville and Marcus Imhoff and Chris Cassil of California finished tied for fourth with a score of 46.
Schuster, in his first year of golf, finished the front nine with two pars and four bogeys.
Other scores for Boonville had Cole Corbitt with a score of 47 with one par and five bogeys, Grady Baker with a score of 56 with one par and three bogeys, Lucas Ziegelbein with a score of 60 with one bogey and Brant Whitaker with a score of 66.
