Wolfpack down LeMars in first conference meet

Western Christian boys’ golf

LEMARS-After its first meet of the season against Marcus-Meriden-Cleghorn/Remsen Union Tuesday, April 4, Western Christian was pleased with the depth it has on the boys’ golf team. That depth came through again Thursday in a Lakes Conference dual with LeMars at Willow Creek Golf Club.

The Wolfpack defeated the Bulldogs 163-190 led by first- and second-place medalists, Taylor Westphal and Cade Broek. Westphal shot a 39 and Broek shot a 40. Colyn Oostenink also shot a 40 with Caleb Harmsen shooting a 44 to complete Western Christian’s team score. The final two Wolfpack varsity golfers were Carter Broek with a 45 and Brennan Kooi also with a 45.

“We were pleased with a 163. Our depth came through for us with our four and six golfer (Westphal and Harmsen) scores counting toward our total,” said Wolfpack coach Jim Eekhoff. “Our guys felt we could have putted a lot better, but this score is pretty good on a tough LeMars course.”

Wolfpack take the Sibley-Ocheyedan tournament

SIBLEY-Western Christian had to face the test of having to golf without two of its regular varsity players at the Sibley-Ocheyedan boys’ golf tournament Saturday, but the Wolfpack’s depth came through.

Western Christian finished the day with a score of 328 to win the team title over Sibley-Ocheyedan, LeMars and Woodbury Central. Carter Broek was the individual winner, shooting an 18-hole round of 76. Other top individuals were Cade Broek with an 82, Colyn Oostenink with an 82 and Brennan Kooi with an 88.

The two regular varsity golfers missing were Taylor Westphal and Caleb Harmsen due to ACT testing. Filling in were Micah Van Otterloo and Brayden Van Oort. Van Otterloo shot an 89 for the day and Van Oort finished with a 91.

“Carter Broek had a really good day. As a whole, it was windy but it wasn’t too bad. There was a good south wind that, for holes you had to play into the wind, made it pretty tough, but overall I was happy with the way things went,” said Western Christian coach Jim Eekhoff. “A 329 for an 18-hole course is really good. We have been really consistent in our scores so far this year and our depth has been good for us, specially Saturday when we had two of our normal varsity guys out.”
