Prep Boys’ Golf: Washington Punches Their Ticket to State

Williamsburg, IA- Washington has dominated all season, entering their district meet yesterday with ten first place finishes on the year. The Demons can add another gold medal to their season total after shooting 295 as a team, which was 19 strokes better than Pella’s second-place finish.

Washington boasts a team full of aces, but the two leaders continued their pristine play. Rajan Roth actually had a one-stroke lead on Roman Roth after the front nine, but the senior knocked in four birdies on the back nine to tie his brother with an 18-hole score of 68 (-3).

Teague Mayer helped the Demons with the seventh best score of the course after shooting 7-over. Drew Conrad finished top-15 after carding an 81.

Mt. Pleasant’s Reece Coffman, competing as an individual, had a fine day for the Panthers. The senior shot two-over in the front-nine, which was tied for fifth best in the field. Coffman would finish with the sixth best score, shooting a 77. Unfortunately, he was the first one eliminated from qualifying for state.

Joining Washington and Pella at the Class 3A state meet will be Bryce Yearian of Williamsburg and Johnathon Terpstra of Oskaloosa, who shot 72s respectively. The meet will take place at Veenker Memorial Golf Course in Ames on May 20th.
