The Washington Demon golf team grabbed a big win on Saturday, winning their six team, 18 hole invite.
Washington won the meet with 340 strokes, and Derek Anding was the co-meet medalists with a 79. Other scores for the Demons were Blake Weidman with an 87, Ryan Waite and Mason Rich with an 88, Tanner Coleman with an 89 and Grant Marek with a 102.
Ian Kelly of Marion also shot a 79 for a low score that tied Anding, but Anding won the card back to take first.
Demon head coach Mark Berhow said after a difficult meet at Marion, his team came back and played well at home despite some tough wind conditions.
“It was great to see the guys bounce back and be golfers, we had talked about it on the way back from Marion that we really wanted to work on being golfers,and not just guys out on the course hitting balls, and I was proud to see the guys really came through with that on Saturday,” Berhow said. “The winds were a challenge at times, a couple of holes that normally there would be a lot lower scores, were some challenging scores, but my guys really played through it, and I think that is one of those things about playing at home, you’re a little bit more familiar, a little more relaxed. We had some great spectators out there to follow along, but overall we played really well.”
Columbus Junction’s low score was Zac Howell at 80, while Chase Finke had an 85, Alex Mincer hit a 90, Eli Sents came in with a 91, Ethan Leydan shot a 93 and Mitchell Griffin hit a 94.
