The Goessel golf team came in fifth behind Wichita Trinity, Circle, Eureka and Sedgwick, paced by Shane Goerzen who shot a season best 79 and earned an eighth-place medal. Braden Unruh placed 15th and lowered his score to 86. Trey Schmidt scored 92 and Stephan Goertzen shot a steady 95. On the tough course, Tyler Schulz ended with 117 and Dan Smucker closed out the day at 125.
Thirteen schools competed at the El Dorado Golf Tournament with ten of those teams from 3A and 4A schools. With Goerzen, Unruh and Goertzen hitting their best scores of the season, Goessel did well against larger schools. The Bluebirds tied Remington with a team score of 352 while finishing ahead of Rose Hill, Andale, Bluestem, Clearwater, Pretty Prairie, and Chaparral.
The Goessel teams will be participating at tournaments hosted by Pretty Prairie on Monday and Sedgwick on Thursday.
