MONROE — Nick Farver’s career-best nine-hole round led the PCM boys golf team to a win during a home triangular on Thursday.

Farver’s career-best 38 and Easton Van Veen’s 39 lifted the Mustangs to a six-shot victory over Grinnell at Gateway Recreation Golf Course.

PCM won the day with a 157, while Grinnell (163) finished second and West Marshall (183) took third.

Farver was the runner-up medalist as he and Grinnell’s Levi Jack both shot 38s. Jack was the medalist due to a card off.

Van Veen was one shot back in third and Tate Tangeman and Pete Kiernan both shot 40s to complete the counting scores.

Charlie Ford (43) and Jeffrey McDanel (44) turned in non-counting scores.
