The St. Vincent golf team has been on quite the run the past week Just a few days after winning the JCAA Conference tournament, the Indians claimed a bigger prize. St. Vincent won the Class 1, District 1 title at Bent Creek Golf Course in Jackson.
It is the Indians first district title since 2010.
“The guys have been playing well the last week or so, and pretty much all season,” St. Vincent golf coach Tim Schumer said.
St. Vincent narrowly edged Linn High School with a team score of 346 to Linn’s 348.
“We have been playing against a lot of bigger schools and have been doing well in most of those meets,” Schumer said. “Once we started playing schools that were our size, I thought we would do better and be able to show what the guys have been doing all year.”
St. Vincent was led by Payton Strattman who shot an 80 on the day to tie for second place with Viburnum’s Braden Johnson and Eugene’s Ethan Wunderlich. Strattman missed first place by a single stroke as Linn’s Jett Maasen shot a 79 on the day to claim the top spot.
