Rain Cancels Dragon Varsity Matches

FROM STAFF REPORTS

Rain was the big winner last week, forcing the cancellation of two varsity matches for the Ste. Genevieve High School boys’ golf team.

The Dragons were originally scheduled to have a Mineral Area Activities Association triangular meet on Wednesday, April 28, at Ste. Genevieve Golf Club.

That event has been moved to today at 4 p.m.

For the second time in as many weeks, Ste. Genevieve’s conference dual match with North County, at St. Francois Country Club in rural Farmington, was scrapped due to course conditions.

Practice time also was limited for the week, which certainly didn’t help matters any — especially since the MAAA tournament was scheduled for this past Monday at Terre du Lac Country Club in Bonne Terre.

District Tournament

The Dragons will compete in the Missouri State High School Activities Association Class 3 District 1 tournament next Monday at St. Francois Country Club.

The field for the event will feature the following schools: Ste. Genevieve, host Park Hills Central, Dexter, Doniphan, Fredericktown, Herculaneum, Kennett, Cape Notre Dame, Owensville, Perryville, Potosi, Salem, St. Clair, St. James and Sullivan.

Junior Varsity

PERRYVILLE — The Ste. Genevieve junior varsity boys’ golf team finished fifth out of 15 teams at the Perryville Tournament on April 22.

Gavin Huck produced the top result for the Dragons, carding a 47 in this nine-hole event.

He was good enough for 12th in a field of 68 competitors.

“Gavin had some difficulty with his driver,” Ste. Genevieve head boys’ coach Ryan Mueller said. “He was able to succeed by playing smart in tough situations. This was Gavin’s first time medaling in a tournament.”

Jayden Rhinehart also fared well, with a 52, excelling with sand saves. Cole Romann also posted a 52, with solid tee shots and course management.

Braden Huck was next with a 57, with putting his biggest challenge. Dalan Roth rounded out the scores with a 65.

Ste. Genevieve also participated in a scramble at Potosi on April 27, placing first with a 182.
