By michael boyd jr.
The Ste. Genevieve golf team suffered a double loss to both Farmington and Fredericktown in a MAAA Conference tri-match Thursday.
The Dragons posted a score 190, while Farmington earned two wins with the lowest score of 171 and Fredericktown split at 187.
No individual scorers were available as of press time.
The Dragons host their own invitational Wednesday at the Ste. Genevieve County Golf Club. Action begins at 9 a.m. On Monday they will play at the Jackson High invitational.
■Farmington Invite: Gavin Huck posted an 18-hole, 13-over-par round of 85 in windy and wet conditions during the Farmington High Invitational last Wednesday at Crown Pointe Golf Club & Resort.
Huck scored a 42 on the front-9 and a 43 on the back-9 to lead the Dragons on the day.
“Gavin had some inconsistency with his long game, putting him into some tricky situations,” Dragons head golf coach Ryan Mueller said.
Ste. Genevieve finished 18th out of the 22 teams after struggling with the weather on the course formerly known as Eagle Lake Golf Club.
Eureka won the event with a total low score of 315, and Dexter and Jackson tied for second at 318. The host Knights were eighth with a 345.
Kellen Hogenmiller added a 99 to stay below the 100s with a two pars despite a double-bogey.
“Kellen came into today with the goal of being able to stay in the 90’s,” Mueller said. “He fought at the end to keep him in the 90’s to meet his goal for the day.”
