Trinity Christian Tigers fall short to South O’Brien

PAULLINA-Trinity Christian has a mix of youth and talent for the 2017 boys’ golf season and some of those traits came out in a War Eagle Conference dual with South O’Brien at Paullina Golf Course Monday, April 3.

The Tigers, as a team, fell in the dual 184-220. However, the top golfer for Trinity Christian was Andrew DeBoer, who finished third with a nine-hole round of 44 after a three-way playoff with Sam Nelson and Cameron Maxwell of South O’Brien.

“Andrew DeBoer shot a 44, lost in a playoff and played great,” said Tigers’ coach Jordan DeBoer. “He improved from last season and had a great first match.”

The second and third golfers on the team were Logan Cleveringa with a 53 and Caden Vis with a 54. Tyler Van Maanen and Dawson Vis were tied for the fourth-best golfer on the team, both shooting a 69.

“Logan Cleveringa is off to a great start this year as well. Caden Vis has improved since last season. He hit the ball well yesterday,” DeBoer said. “Tyler Van Maanen and Dawson Vis both shot 69s in their first high school golf meet and improved as the meet went on. Both were very nervous, but played well for their first meet.

“The boys are off to a good start and have really come a long ways since last season. We are looking forward to the rest of this year,” DeBoer said.

Tigers see steady improvement in dual with Knights

HULL-The Trinity Christian boys’ golf team took its second War Eagle Conference dual defeat of the season Thursday against Unity Christian, but the Tigers are more concerned with how they improve their individual games and felt they took steps toward that goal.

The Tigers fell 167-214 to the Knights but had individual performances coach Jordan DeBoer hopes they can continue to build and improve on. Andrew DeBoer came into the clubhouse as the top golfer for Trinity Christian, shooting a nine-hole round of 46. Logan Cleveringa shot a 49 and Caden Vis shot a 55.

“Andrew played well again. Didn’t finish the way he wanted, but I felt he played very well,” coach DeBoer said. “Logan had a great game and improved from meet number one (a 53), which is exactly what we want. Caden Vis had a 55, which is good. He is off to a better start than last year and will continue to improve as the year goes on.”

Tyler Van Maanen was the fourth golfer in with a 64 and coach DeBoer likes his continued efforts on the course as well.

“Tyler Van Maanen shot a 64, which is an improvement from meet number one (a 69), so that is great as well,” he said.
