GOLF: WCHS boys throw up a 152, still lose by a shot

FORT DODGE – The best team score in three years still wasn’t enough to give the Webster City boys’ golf team a North Central Conference triangular victory yesterday at Lakeside Golf Course.

The Lynx posted three rounds in the 30s and two more a stroke shy for a 152, but St. Edmond rode Robert Flattery’s scorching round of 32 to a 151 and team victory. Bishop Garrigan was right in the hunt as well with a 156.

“Our scores have steadily fallen over the last three years, so it’s really exciting to see,” WCHS head coach Dave Brighton said. “The teams in our conference are all stronger than last year … we will need to keep improving if we are to continue to win meets.”

Alec Fuhs, a state qualifier last year, led the Lynx with a runner-up round of 36. Logan Yates was a shot in back of his teammate. Sean Vogelbacher added a 39, while John Ferrell and Drew Fielder both turned in a 40.

Jess Marlow (37), Michael Berke (39) and Andrew Lallier (39) were strong for the Golden Bears, as was Michael Faiferlick (38) for the Gaels.
