The Boonville Pirates golf team finished sixth out of 16 teams Monday while competing in the Grain Valley Tournament at Adams Point Golf Club in Blue Springs.
With over 70 golfers competing in the tournament, Boonville golf coach Rob VanderLinden said it was a cold and windy day as there was a one hour delay to the tournament due to frost on the course.
“All the Pirate golfers started slow and gradually played better as it warmed up,” VanderLinden said. “For the most part, each one of the Pirate golfers shot close to their season average. The top 10 were considered meet medalist. Brayden Page and Jake Horst each shot an 88, which was tied for 11th-just one out of the medals. Grady Baker placed 21 with his 96. None of them were thrilled with their score and went straight to the golf course when we got home to work on their game. I’m glad to see the extra effort they put in after competing for almost six hours.”
In the final team standings, Warrensburg captured first with a score of 323. Summit Christian finished second at 358, followed by Clinton at 362, Harrisonville at 373, Butler at 374 and Boonville at 376.
Alex Brown of Summit Christian High School was the medalist for the tournament with a 1 over par 73.
With his score of 88, Horst had one birdie, four pars and nine bogeys on the day. Page, meanwhile, finished the tournament with six pars and seven bogeys while matching Horst. Baker had one birdie, one par and eight bogeys to finish with a score of 96, while Adam Schneringer carded a score of 104 with four pars and three bogeys and Cole Corbitt with a score of 106 with two pars and three bogeys.
The Boonville Pirates golf team will compete next in the Boonville Masters Tournament on Thursday at Hail Ridge Golf Course starting at 9 .m.
