Spartans eighth at state golf
NEWTON (May 23) -- The Exira-Elk Horn-Kimballton boys never got their second chance after some opening-day struggles at the Class 1A Boys State Golf Tournament.
The Spartans posted a team score of 364 at the Westwood Golf Course Thursday, finishing last out of eight teams when Friday’s second day of competition was cancelled due to very wet course conditions. The state meets in 2A and 3A suffered the same fate at other sites.
On the bright side for Exira-EHK, junior twin brothers Will and Everette Carroll both earned individual medals by placing sixth and seventh, respectively, with 18-hole rounds of 78. Ethan Streicher of Edgewood-Colesburg claimed the 1A state title with a one-over-par 72.
The rest of the Spartans finished in the bottom portion of the leaderboard as senior Cole Burmeister shot a 102, sophomore Tyler Petersen had a 106 and junior Jayden Jensen and senior Trey Nelson both finished with a 112.
Harris-Lake Park won the Class 1A team title by three shots (322-325) over Grundy Center.
