Tonganoxie High golfers nab 6th place at regional event
The Tonganoxie High golf team finished its 2015 campaign with a sixth-place finish in a 10-team regional Monday at Sunflower Hills Golf Course in Bonner Springs.
Matt Scharff shot an 88 and Heath Martin finished with a 98.
“We played the course in tough conditions and all battled through the day,” coach Doug Sandburg said.
The top two teams and top five individuals qualified. Topeka Hayden and De Soto took home the top two team awards and advanced to state competition as teams.
Last week, the Chieftains had a strong day at the Kaw Valley League meet. THS placed fourth at the KVL meet, which was played at Eagle Bend Golf Course in Lawrence.
The Chieftains shot a 370 as a team. Ben Lanza and Matt Schaffer led the team, as each scored a squad-low 89. Heath Martin shot a 95 and Noah Arthaud scored a 97.
“The kids have kept playing better and better as the year went along,” Sandburg said after the KVL meet.
