LARCHWOOD-After a rainy Monday, April 10, conditions were much better Tuesday, April 11, for Siouxland Conference boys’ golf at Meadow Acres Golf and Country Club in Larchwood and both Central Lyon and George-Little Rock took advantage of that fact.
Temperatures were in the low 60s with a gentle breeze and clear skies. Those resulted in season-low scores for most of the Siouxland Conference golf teams with the Lions finishing tied for fifth with West Lyon at 165 strokes. Sheldon won the meet for the second time in a row with 145 team strokes. Central Lyon was led individually by Brandt Boekhout who was a fourth-place individual medalist with a 36. Rounding out the top scores were Brendan Huisman, Kaden Huisman and Cody Huisman with 43s.
“The weather was great and the scores were very low. I was happy with the way we played and, hopefully, we will continue to improve,” said Lions’ coach Chris Wright.
The Mustang boys also saw improved numbers with Dalton Van Briesen leading the way with a 45 and Nick Hengeveld shooting a 53.
“A much better night. Both of the boys shot season-best scores. We need to build off this confidence for next week’s meet at Rock Valley Country Club (Thursday, April 20),” said George-Little Rock coach Levi Judge.
