Trojan golfers competed Friday in the Marion County golf tournament, a 36-hole event, at golf courses in Marion and Hillsboro.

Golfers played 18 holes at Marion Country Club in the morning, ate lunch, and played another 18 holes in the afternoon at Hillsboro Municipal Golf Course.

The Trojans did not place as a team in the tournament, but they came in eighth in the Hillsboro portion of the event with a score of 408. At Marion, they did not have enough players finish the round to place as a team.

Individually, Elias Werth placed 29th out of 49 players with a score of 192. He scored a 101 at Marion and a 93 at Hillsboro.
