After winning the Sacred Heart Tournament earlier in the week at Sedalia Country Club, the Boonville Pirates golf team couldn’t have been more confident heading into Thursday’s quadrangular meet at Old Hawthorne in Columbia.
Having already faced California earlier in the season, the Pirate golfers felt good about their chances going into the meet.
As it turned out the Pirates wound up finishing third out of four teams behind California and Centralia.
The Pintos captured first with a team score of 344, followed by Centralia at 361, Boonville at 381 and Eugene at 488.
“Today we played one of the nicest courses in the state,” said Boonville Pirates golf coach Rob VanderLinden. “What started off as such a good week by winning the Sacred Heart Tournament, did not end that way. We finished third in the quad against California, Centralia and Eugene. This challenging golf course was a good way to prepare for the next part of our season. The regular season came to a close today and we finished with a 11-5 record in matches. Next Wednesday is the conference tournament held in Versailles, followed by the district tournament held in Marshfield.”
Tanner Brandow of Centralia was the meet medalist with a 6-over par 72.
Jordo Gieser of California finished second with a 6 over par 78, followed by Brayden Page of Boonville with a 14-over par 86, Ennoch Dunnaway of California with a 15 over par 87 and Jake Horst of Boonville with a 20 over par 92.
While finishing with the low score for Boonville, VanderLinden said Page had seven pars and eight boys on the day. Horst finished the meet with four pars and 11 bogeys while Adam Schneringer shot a score of 98 with one par and six bogeys, Cole Corbitt 105 with eight bogeys and Grady Baker 109 with seven bogeys.
