Comets struggle at Otter Valley

GEORGE-The Boyden-Hull boys’ golf team had a rough go of it at a Siouxland Conference meet at Otter Valley Golf Course near George Monday, May 8.

The Comets placed third with a team score of 173. Boyden-Hull was led individually by fifth-place medalist Marcus Rens with a 40. Kyle Baartman finished with a 43. Keaton Van Roekel was right behind him with a 44. Davis Van Roekel finished his round with a 46, while Logan Brunsting finished a 47.

“It was a tough night on the course. The wind made the course play extremely tough. As a team, we struggled,” said Boyden-Hull coach Brad Van Roekel. “I think we let the conditions get the best of us. Sometimes you need to understand what a good round is. In these kind of conditions, shooting around your average was going to be good. There are times you need to play for a bogey just to take a big number out of the equation. Luckily for us, we have a busy week so we don’t have time to worry about one round. We need to focus on our next meet and continue trying to get better.”

Boyden-Hull hopes to shrink scores

OKOBOJI-The Boyden-Hull boys may have finished tied for third in the final team standings, but the Comets wanted a better fate than they had at a Siouxland Conference boys’ golf meet at Emerald Hills Golf Club Tuesday, May 9.

Boyden-Hull finished with a 167 as did meet host Okoboji. MOC-Floyd Valley won the meet title with a 158. Kyle Bartman led the way with a 39 with Marcus Rens coming in with a 40. Davis Van Roekel and Keaton Van Roekel each came in with 44s, but coach Brad Van Roekel wants his team to continue to strive for 40s or 39s.

“We struggled last night to come in with four solid scores. I felt good getting a 39 and a 40 in the clubhouse, but we can’t afford to count two 44s,” coach Van Roekel said. “As a whole, too many of the guys are getting multiple double-bogeys in a round and it is hard to make up for that in nine holes. We have to get mentally tougher and make bogeys out of holes we are not playing well.”
