Cards, S/SA golfers play in first tourney

Boone Central/Newman Grove and Spalding/Spalding Academy golf teams faced some stiff competition in the Ord Invitational Friday, April 11, at the Ord Golf Club.
Playing their first tournament action of the season, the BC/NG Cardinals placed seventh in the 12-team field, while Spalding/Academy finished 10th.
Host Ord used its course familiarity to run away from the competition and claimed the team title with a 306 score. G.I. Central Catholic (335) was runner-up and the Ord JV (340) defeated nine varsity teams to place third.

Boone Central/Newman Grove finished with a 361 team total. Jackson Meyer was the only Cardinal to break 90 in the 18-hole tournament, shooting 42/46-88. Parker Wallin (50/40) and Derek Gentrup (45/45) both finished at 90 even.
Spalding/Academy completed the 18 holes with a 405 team score. John Bernt (49/42-91) was the lone Knight to stay under 100.
Ord’s Jaden Barnes took the individual gold medal with 69, firing a 31 on his second nine. The Ord varsity and JV had seven of the 15 medalists in the tourney.
