Camdenton takes 15th at Helias Invitational
Camdenton was one of 20 schools in tournament action in Jefferson City on Monday as the Lakers battled in the Helias Invitational.
Camdenton finished 14th in the final team standings with a team score of 411 and Columbia Rock Bridge claimed the top spot with a score of 304 respectively.
“It was another cold and windy day and we struggled a bit today,” Camdenton coach Shawn Maschino said. “Our goal is to be mentally ready for districts. We are letting a few bad shots affect us mentally and we have to be able to move beyond that shot and get a great mindset for the next one. I know we will get there and we’ve taken some good strides forward at times.”
Spencer Melville paced the Lakers with a round of 89 and finished tied for 22nd amongst a field of 92 golfers. CJ Rogers tied for 31st with a score of 93, Keith Stehle tied for 74th with a round of 114 and Treyvor Watson put up a 115 to tie for 79th.
Up next for Camdenton is a battle with Waynesville on Wednesday at 4 P.M.
Osage finishes third in Waynesville Tournament
School of the Osage took on five other schools at the Waynesville Invitational on Monday and the Indians finished third at the end of the day with a team score of 327, only trailing Lebanon (307) and Rolla (323).
“Osage had a very good day,” Osage coach L.J. Weeks said. “The playing conditions were brutal so any decent scores were a job well done. I think with the wind chill and extreme wind gusts and being around 25 degrees when they started play, most had on several layers of clothes and it’s hard to make a good swing with that.”
Ethan Kline led the Indians and finished fourth with a round of 80 individually and Jacob Krantz took fifth with an 81. In group play, the team of Nick Riley and Zach Krantz finished tied for second in best ball with an 82 and the team of Trevor Ralston and Chance Foster put up an 84 in scramble to capture third.
Osage will host Rolla, Lebanon and Waynesville on Thursday at 4 p.m.
Versailles and Eldon battle at Sacred Heart Invite
Versailles and Eldon were in tournament play Monday at the Sacred Heart Invitational against 14 other teams. Versailles placed seventh and Eldon’s place was unknown at the time of press.
Eldon’s Austin Kostelnik led the Mustangs with a round of 87 and earned a medal by placing in the top 15. Aiden Wells shot a 91, Cole Kliethermes added a 92, Nick Willingham recordded a 100 and Breckon Blankenship put up a round of 101.
“It was a cold and windy day on a challenging course, but the boys played well and had a good outing,” Eldon coach Matt Frey said. “We had one golfer medal and the other boys are still playing well and sharpening their game for conference and districts.”
Versailles was led by Garrett Boatright who put up a score of 90 while Ori Bartlett and Joel Faron scored a 96 and Kyle Bartlett finished with 112.
“We had our best tournament showing so far this season,” Versailles coach Chuck Campbell said. “I was real pleased with their effort today and the conditions were not the best, but I guess they should be used to that by now. It was nice to see Garrett getting back to where he should be, Joel is just getting better and better each week and Kyle is improving each week. Ori, who qualified for state last year, should be getting back to form soon and the Tigers are looking to finish strong.”
Eldon visits Southern Boone on Thursday at 4 p.m., and Versailles will be in the Stover Tournament on the same day.
