It has been a busy week for the Hawks’ boys’ golf team who hit the links four times in less than a week.
Woodward-Granger’s latest outing was this past Monday when they headed to the Beaver Creek Golf Course for a one-on-one match against the host the Dallas Center-Grimes Mustangs.
The host strutted towards the victory after the team shot a combined 9-hole round of 172, a full 20 strokes better than the Hawks.
Nick Brummond, Hawks, led his squad with a round of 44. He began the day with a triple bogey, a birdie, four over par, then two doubles before a strong finish of a bogey, eagle and a birdie.
Five strokes behind were teammates Brady Aunspach and Joe Rhodes who both finished with a 49. Austin Ober was third on the team with a 50 as was Hunter Pierce. Max Helbling finished with a 58.
Two days before the Hawks traveled the Ames Golf and Country Club for a showdown with host Gilbert, Van Meter, Nevada, Roland-Story, A.D.M, Ballard, Boone and DC-G.
Unfortunately for the Hawks they finished in last place with an 18-hole round of 382. The host topped all teams with a 310.
In second was Boone with a 325, third was Nevada with a 330, and fourth was A.D.M. with a 332.
It was DC-G coming in fifth with a 360 followed by Roland-Story’s 372. Seventh place went to Ballard with a 381 and in eighth was Van Meter who also shot a 381.
The Hawks suffered a similar fate finishing last at the May 5, triangular meet hosted by Ogden High School.
It was a close contest as all three schools finished in the 180’s with Madrid notching first place with a score of 181. Host Ogden shot a 184 and the Hawks finished with a 188.
W-G’s avoided placing last at this season’s West Central Conference meet hosted by the Panorama High School.
On May 3, four Hawks players combined for an 18-hole round of 395 for a sixth place finish. The host Panthers finished first with a 314.
In second was Des Moines Christian with a 349, Madrid earned third with a 363, and fourth went to Van meter with a 377.
West Central Valley’s 393 landed them fifth, Ogden finished seventh with a 408 with AC/GC’s 411 placing them eighth and Earlham rounded it out with a 430.
