The Versailles golf team finished fourth at the Versailles Invitational Wednesday, April 3 at Rolling Hills Country Club in Versailles.
The Tigers posted a score of 257. Iberia was first out of a field of 13 schools with a 236.
A school had to have three teams of two persons each in order to qualify for a team score. The format was for the teams to play scramble on the front nine and best ball on the back nine of the 18-hole tournament.
The Tigers duo of Ori Bartlett and Zach Brodersen came in with an 85. Kyle Bartlett and Ben Dornan combined to shoot an 86. Garrett Boatright and Sydney Snider posted an 87 and Joel Faron and Caleb Sousley carded an 88.
The pairing of Chad Nolting and Lucas Randall of Stover combined for a 75, the lowest team score of the day.
“This event was created to allow younger players, who often don’t have the experience of high school golf competition, to get a taste of that kind of competition and allow them to be a part of a team score,” coach Kyle Nolawski said. “We are still a young team and I think this was a great example of how we can grow the game in Versailles. We were very competitive and did not necessarily rely on one or two kids today, which was great. Overall I was happy with the effort and the event today. I know that some of our players on the top end would have liked to have played better, but I think they set a great example for the less experienced ones, and that’s what this event is all about.”
