The Rolla and St. James golf teams were both busy with tournaments on Wednesday, April 12. Rolla took part in the Camdenton Invitational, while St. James hosted their STJ Tiger Classic.
The highlight of the Camdenton Invitational for Rolla was senior Stewart Meusch. He placed 24th in the field of 135 by shooting a 79. Matt Drallmeir was three strokes behind him with an 82 to place 43rd. Evan Moore placed 79th with a 91, Jeriah Jordan placed 106th with a 100 and Cameron Copeland was in 112th with a 102. Rockhurst won the event with a team score of 293.
“It was a rough day. This is one of the toughest if not the toughest course we will see all year," said head coach Zach Nixon. "We went over course management extensively before playing, but this course obviously showed its teeth today. I was proud of my team as they showed mental maturity and poise even if our scores didn’t portray it.”
St. James brought in several Four Rivers Conference teams for their tournament, with Salem being the only non-conference opponent at the tournament. Garrick Lonning led the way for St. James with a 99 with Issac Helterbrand a stroke behind him with a 100 and Peyton Engelbrecht right behind him with a 101.
