Goerzen paces Goessel golf

Contributing writer

Shane Goerzen finished fourth April 3 at Herington and fifth at Hillsboro on Thursday, the only Bluebird golfer picking up medals in both meets.

His consistent play ended with an 81 early in the week and an 83 before the Easter break. Trey Schmidt hit a 98 on Tuesday and improved to 92 on Thursday. The Goessel team finished fifth out of thirteen teams on Tuesday, with cloudy but pleasant weather.

Cooler weather was the order Thursday and the team combined for third place medals from the Hillsboro meet. Nine teams participated with Goessel hanging on to the third place using consistent scores.

The order of finish at Herington was Goerzen 81, Braden Unruh 93, Stephan Goertzen 96, Schmidt 98, Dan Smucker 100, and Tyler Schulz 105.

At Hillsboro, Goerzen hit 83, Schmidt 92, Goertzen 95, Schulz 96, Unruh 99, and Smucker 106.

At a JV meet in Herington, Lucas Hiebert earned 10th place.

Goessel will be participating at Peabody and Bennington this week.
