Lynx tame Briggs, whip ’Dogs

WEBSTER CITY – Winning is no longer the ultimate goal for the Webster City boys’ golf team.

By the scores posted it’s clear – the Lynx want to dominate.

Consider Tuesday’s North Central Conference dual a success.

Avery Fuhs shot in the red, and twin brother Alec Fuhs and Logan Yates were both at even par in Webster City’s 25-stroke victory over Hampton-Dumont on the front 9 at Briggs Woods Golf Course.

WCHS shot a season-best 147, while the Bulldogs carded a 172.

“The boys’ confidence seems to be growing,” WCHS head coach Dave Brighton said. “Everyone is finding their groove and playing well. With the depth we have this year, if someone does not play well, a couple of others pick them up.”

Avery Fuhs eagled the par-4 second hole with a chip-in from just short of the green on his way to a medalist round of 35; the only blip on his otherwise flawless card was a bogey at the par-4 sixth.

Yates recorded a birdie on No. 6 after writing down a bogey on No. 5 for a 36. He shared the runner-up spot with Alec Fuhs, who also had one birdie (No. 4) and one bogey (No. 3) to go along with seven pars.

Varsity rookie Drew Fielder closed out the solid team performance with a 40.

Hampton-Dumont was led by Derek Juhl with a 41.

Connor Shannon paced the WCHS junior varsity squad with a 42.

Up next for the Lynx is a road trip to Emmetsburg on Thursday.
