Three Eldon Mustangs, one Osage Indian and one Camdenton Laker made the cut for sectionals in Wednesday's district golf tournaments.

Eldon's Jon Helms, Matt Hart and Braden Atkinson advanced from the Class 3, District 5 tournament at Marshfield Country Club.

Eldon finished sixth as a team. The top two teams and top 15 golfers from non-qualifying teams move on to sectionals.

Osage senior Mack Murray is also sectional bound. He was the last golfer from a non-qualifying team to make the cut.

The Indians finished last in the team standings at disrticts but coach L.J. Weeks saw a lot of positives this spring.

"It's been a good season for us," he said. "I know we didn't rack up many wins but with the young and inexperienced group I had, I kind of expected that. The kids all made progress and really enjoyed playing golf for Osage.

"I can't wait to get these kids back next year. I have really stressed the importance of making golf a year-round sport for them and given encouragement for playing in some junior tournaments over the summer, and to keep swinging. Several of them have the 'golf bug' now, which is exciting."

The Eldon trio and Murray will play Wednesday in the Class 3, Sectional 3 tournament at the par-72 Briarbrook Country Club in Carl Junction.

In Class 4, District 5, senior Andrew Shannon will represent Camdenton High School at sectionals. Shannon shot an 87 at New Bloomfield's par-72 Meadow Lake Acres Country Club.

He'll take to the links Wednesday in Class 4, Sectional 3 competition at Millwood Golf and Racquet Club (par 70) in Springfield. Mason Bennett fell one stroke shy of qualifying.
