Comet boys claim third in first meet

SHELDON-For the first meet of the 2017 season and the first meet under the coach Brad Van Roekel era, the Boyden-Hull boys’ golf team got off to a good start Thursday at a Siouxland Confernce meet at Sheldon Golf and Country Club.

The Comets finished in third place in team standings with 172 strokes as Sheldon and MOC-Floyd Valley tied for the top with 158 strokes. The Orabs were rewarded first place on a tie-breaker.

Individually, Boyden-Hull was led by Keaton Van Roekel with a nine-hole round of 40, good for a sixth-place medal position. Kyle Baartman was second on the team with a 42, Davis Van Roekel was third on the squad with a 44 and Marcus Rens shot a 46.

There was a strong southwest wind blowing at about 15 miles per hour and gusting up to 20 miles per hour and coach Van Roekel said that affected most of the scores, but was pleased with how the Comets battled through it.

“We had a couple of good scores, considering the weather. As a team, we had a couple double bogies and triple bogies, and those are hard to come back from,” he said.
