The Hallsville boys golf program returned to action this week after a five-year hiatus. The team is coached by Brian Anderson and includes one senior and nine sophomores.
To start the week, the Indians teed it up in a triangular nine-hole match at Montgomery City. It was a warm and windy afternoon. The Indians shot a combined 186 to finish first place ahead of Montgomery Co and South Callaway. Logan Cox achieved individual medalist honors with the low score of 42. Weston Grant finished second with a score of 45.
The varsity Indians had an early morning bus ride on Wednesday, March 31 to the Russellville Tournament. The 18-hole event was played at Redfield Golf Course near Eugene.
The field consisted of 15 teams and nearly 80 players. It was a cold and blustery day. The boys managed the conditions and finished third place with a combined score of 379. Logan Cox achieved individual medalist honors with the tournament low score of 75.
The team returned to the course on Thursday, April 1 for a triangular nine-hole match at the Centralia Golf Club. Hallsville, Centralia, and Kirksville competed. Kirksville won the varsity team event with a score of 169. Hallsville finished second at 175 and Centralia one shot behind at 176. Logan Cox again achieved individual medalist honors with an impressive 1-under par score of 34.
Spring break was busy for the golfers but it was great to see them back in action.
