Tigerhawk boys edge Raiders

COLO — Every stroke mattered for Colfax-Mingo and Collins-Maxwell/Baxter during a three-team battle at Twin Anchors Golf Course on Tuesday.

Colo-NESCO ran away with the win, but the Raiders and Tigerhawks battled to the end for the second place position. In the end, CMB had the runner-up medalist, but Colfax-Mingo was two shots better in the team score.

Raider senior Caleb Van Zante shot a 40 to grab runner-up medalist honors. Colfax-Mingo though had three golfers shoot better than 50 and the Tigerhawk depth helped them to a two-shot advantage.

The Royals won the meet with a 171. Colfax-Mingo was the runner-up with a 189, and CMB shot a 191 in third.

Colo-NESCO’s Tyler Anthony won medalist honors with a 38.

Van Zante had scored three pars and shot a 40. Colo-NESCO’s Evan Dodd was next with a 41, and Colfax-Mingo’s Ahren Teed and Colo-NESCO’s Jared Roberts both carded 43s in a tie for fourth.

Colfax-Mingo’s No. 2 and 3 behind Teed struggled with the tightness at Twin Anchors.

Freshman Brady Berkey eagled the par 4 No. 4 but also had a 10 on a hole. Berkey finished with a 50. Junior Wyatt Smith had an even tougher day, carding a 56 following a round that included no pars and an 11 on the No. 9.

The Tigerhawks got a boost from their No. 3 and No. 4.

Sophomore Skyler Aikin carded a personal-best 47, and sophomore Nic Duffy’s 49 also was a personal-best score.

Junior Jake Dunsbergen had a non-counting score of 52.

Junior Jarod Nichols shot a 67 in a junior varsity position.

After Van Zante for CMB was sophomore Austin Good, who finished with a 49.

Senior Ricky White and freshman Simon McKinney both carded a 51 to complete the counting scores.

Shane Beougher had a non-counting score of 73.

CMB had three junior varsity players on the links. Derek Flaucher carded a 52, Christian Brandt shot a 67 and Joey Tillman finished with an 85.

CMB plays at 4 p.m. Friday at Roland-Story.

The Tigerhawks play at 4:15 p.m. Monday at Belle Plaine.
