Cub boys finish second at R-S

GRINNELL — The Nevada boys’ golf team tied for third at the Grinnell Invitational Monday at the Grinnell Country Club.

Nevada shot a 159 over nine holes to finish even with Oskaloosa in the team standings at a meet that was cut short due to weather. Grinnell won the meet with a score of 147 and Des Moines Christian took second with a 156.

“This was our first time playing in this event or at this course,” Nevada head coach Ryan Brown said. “Sometimes you can play your best golf when you see a course for the first time. Everybody responds differently to that kind of challenge. Obviously, the first half of our lineup responded better than our top half.”

Cam Shill stepped up to lead Nevada with a 37. Jack Higgins was second with a 40 and James Carsrud and Cole Gidel each shot a 41 to round out the counted scores for Nevada.

Braydon Otto shot a 43 and Jake DeVries finished with a 44 as the other Cub golfers competing at the meet.

Oskaloosa’s Spencer Tucker was the medalist at the meet after shooting a three-under par 32. Grinnell’s Lucas Scherf was medalist runner-up with a 33.

Final team scores (9 holes): 1. Grinnell 147, 2. Des Moines Christian 156, 3. (tie) Nevada and Oskaloosa 159, 5. Grinnell Orange 203, 6. Pella 211.

Nevada (159) - Braydon Otto 43, Cole Gidel 41, Jake DeVries 44, Cam Shill 37, James Carsrud 41, Jack Higgins 40.
