Golf Team Off To Hot Start Despite Cold Weather

Poor weather has taken its toll on the spring golf season at Scotland County R-I High School. The Tigers have played in just four dual meets and one tournament thus far in 2007.

But SCR-I has made up for the lack of quantity with plenty of quality.

Scotland County opened the season on March 27th in a triangular meet at LaPlata versus the Bulldogs as well as the team from Schuyler County. SCR-I prevailed with a team score of 158 to best LaPlata (170) and the Rams (210). Matt Wickert led the Tigers, shooting par for the course with a 36. Travis Trueblood craded a 39 while Zach McBee shot a 40 followed by Joe Spurgeon with a 43 and Andy Cowell with a 45.

The Tigers opened the home season on March 29th at Timber Ridge Golf Course with a dual meet against Putnam County. SCR-I won the event with a final score of 152 to 193. McBee topped the Tigersí scoring with a 36. Spurgeon shot a 37 while Trueblood finished with a 39. Cowell finished with a 40 while Wickert shot a 45.

Scotland County traveled to Twin Lakes Golf Course in Kahoka for a dual meet versus the Indians on April 2. The Tigers dropped a close match, falling behind Clark County by two strokes, 197 to 195.

McBee tied for individual medalist honors with a round of 45 as tough wind conditions produced some high scores. Wickert shot a 47 followed by Spurgeon with a 50, Cowell with a 55 and Jerad Fuller with a 56.

SCR-I finished second in the 10-team Schuyler County Tournament on April 5th.

The April 10th meet at Canton was canceled due to inclement weather, marking the third event SCR-I lost to the weather thus far in 2007.

The SCR-I junior varsity squad played in the Palmyra Tournament on April 9th at Jackson Park Golf Course. Kelly Lister carded a 102 to lead Scotland County. Trever Harris carded a 113 while Megan Newman shot a 123 and Michael Moore shot a 128.
