Charger Golfers See Panorama Course Twice Last Week
The ACGC golf team competed in two events last week--both at the Panorama course. On Thursday the boys faced Panorama and Woodward-Granger in a triangular and Saturday Panorama again hosted a multi team invitational..
Thursday's triangular found a strong Panorama team defeating both the Chargers and the Hawks by a wide margin. Based on the top four golfers for each team, the Panthers low score was 175. Earlham just edged out the Chargers by one stroke, 208 to 209, to claim the runner up spot.
There was a triple tie for medalist honors between Panorama's Brice Taylor and Drew Taylor and W-G's Trey Letow who all shot a 43 for the nine holes played. The Panthers' Lucas Leiferman and Ryan Klinge followed with a 44 and 45 respectively to account for the teams 175 strokes.
Three Chargers--Gunnar Larsen, Bo Arrasmith, and Nolan Wheatley--had scores of 52 on the day. Eli Kading carded a 53 to round out the Charger totals.
On Saturday the Chargers returned to Panorama to compete in a nine team, eighteen hole invitational. The Charger squad improved its scores from Thursday and finished in the middle of the pack with a score of 392. Eli Kading had the best score for ACGC at 92 on the par 72 course. Larsen also broke 100 with a 95, while Bo Arrasmith shot a 100 and Nolan Wheatly's score was a 105.
"The team did a better job of adjusting to the long, tight fairways and faster greens on Saturday," Charger coach Lori McGivney said following Saturday's meet. "I'm proud of the positive attitude it took to rebound in such a short time."
Webster City won the event with the low score of 355, with Panorama a close second with 359.
Carroll Kuemper's Jack Tiefenthaler was medalist with an 82.
