Demons contend with talented field
OSKALOOSA – The Washington High School boys’ golf team participated in a tournament at Edmondson Golf Course last night, competing with five other schools.
Washington finished with a team score of 340, which put them in fifth place out of the six teams.
Sophomore Derek Anding again set the pace for the Demons with his 18-hole score of 80. Senior Ryan Waite followed with this 83. Freshman Mason Rich shot an 88. Freshman Tanner Coleman carded an 89. Junior Blake Weidman came into the clubhouse with a 92. Freshman Noah Enfield rounded out the Washington scoring with his 95.
“We played in the rain for most of the meet and I am proud of how we persevered. We played against two of the top teams in class 3A in Pella and Fairfield. We will continue to work on lowering scores and becoming better decision makers on the course. Derek Anding is playing consistently for us, showing improvement in each meet. Ryan Waite is steadily getting to his potential and will play a vital role in our postseason goals,” Washington boys’ golf head coach Mark Berhow said.
The Washington boys’ golf team will send some of its younger players to participate in a junior varsity meet tomorrow at Columbus Junction. The varsity squad will be in action again on Saturday at Fairfield.
