“Our scores are getting down there, but we’ve still got some work to do. The addition of David (Guth) has given us a little more depth,” Caledonia/Spring Grove boys golf coach Jeremy Leis said.
Foreign exchange student David Guth, who began the spring season on the Warrior baseball team, decided to switch to golf. Leis said Guth can hit a golf ball farther than any high school player he’s coached.
The Warriors carded a 165 in a win over Rushford-Peterson, shot one stroke better in the losing effort (164-163) to Waukon and placed fifth out of eight teams in the Wabasha-Kellogg Invitational.
Warriors 165, R-P 181
The Warriors remained unbeaten in Three Rivers Conference play on May 1 when they hosted the Trojans and defeated them by 16 strokes.
Joey Ehlers was match medalist with a 39. Guth was right behind with a 40. Hunter Rud had a 42, Devin Schiltz had a 44, Evan Welscher had a 45 and Sean Conner had a 49.
The Warrior junior varsity also won, as they beat the Trojans 192 to 205.
Carter Mann led the JV with a 43. Drew Stemper had a 49, Cole Konkel and Cody Meiners had 55s, Zach Gavin had a 56 and Cody Breeser had a 60.
Waukon 162, Warriors 164
Leis said the Warriors turned in their best nine-hole round of the year with a 164. Unfortunately, host-team Waukon shot two better on May 4.
Schiltz had the low score for the Warriors with a 38. Ehlers and Rud had 41s and Conner had a 45.
