Eldon outshoots Camdenton and Southern Boone

Eldon hosted Camdenton and Southern Boone for nine holes on the links at Eldon Golf Club Thursday night and the night belonged to the Mustangs with a team score of 182 that bested Camdenton (190) and Southern Boone (219).

“The boys dropped a stroke as a team from the previous match,” Eldon coach Matt Frey noted. “I am happy with what I’m seeing. If we can get a few more boys to continue to lower their scores, we will be looking good moving through the season.”

Eldon’s Aiden Wells was the match medalist after carding a 39.

Meanwhile, Camdenton coach Shawn Maschino said his club did not have the best of days with some big numbers on a few holes.

“The boys need to understand that in golf, you are going to have some good days and some bad days. There are learning moments in both victory and defeat,” he stated. “I felt we made a few decisions that ended up costing us strokes. Sometimes you’ve got to learn to take your bogey and go on and live to play another hole.

“The good thing is it is early in the season and this match does not have any effect on the postseason. Hopefully, we’ve learned from our mistakes and have a better outing next time.”

Eldon will visit Osage on Tuesday afternoon and Camdenton will play its first tournament of the year at the Columbia Classic on April 1.

Osage places third in home tri-dual

Osage hosted California and Boonville for nine holes on Thursday and it was not the best outing for the Indians as they placed third on the night.

Osage is scheduled to host Eldon on Tuesday before hosting Blair Oaks, Eugene and Lincoln on Thursday at 4 p.m.
