After the clubs were cleaned and cleats free from the fairway grass, the Perry Bluejays golf team had turned in a combined score of 190 for a second place finish at the Winterset golf course.


“Really great day to get out and golf and not have to layer up,” head coach John Fulton said. “The boys played pretty well today and we saw some of our fourth and fifth golfers’ scores go down which always helps our team score out.”


Tanner Duffy led the way for the squad with a final 9-round score of 43. Only three strokes back was teammate Luke Rathje who finished with a 46.


“Tanner and Luke keep playing well and if they could have avoided a big score on a couple holes they would’ve been right around their season averages,” the head coach said.


Other Bluejays in action were Connor Nielsen who shot a 48 and with a score of 52, Gabe Ridnour was the final counted score. Perry’s Emilio Gonzalez turned in a 54.


As a team the host Huskies took the top spot with a final round of 173. Fellow visitors, the Comets from North Polk, recorded a 196 at the April 19, meet.


The Bluejays were home at the Perry Golf and Country Club this Saturday, April 21, where they welcomed, Adel-DeSoto-Minburn, Carlisle, Gilbert, Norwalk, Woodward-Granger, and Greene County for the school’s Invitational.


“We are looking forward to our invitational this Saturday and some great weather the rest of the year,” Fulton said.
