Golfers place second in conference meet In the Big Eight conference meet involving Madison and Lennox, the VHS golf team finished second with a score of 358 while the Madison Bulldogs scored 338 and Lennox finished with 373. The varsity and JV matches were played in Madison on Sept. 30.
The varsity medalist was Paul Green of the Bulldogs with a score of 81. Tanager scores were: Derrick Brown 86; Brett Hogen 87; Aaron Baedke 87; Rob Schaack 98; and Nathan Boots 100.
The junior varsity meet was won by the Tanagers with a score of 372. Co-medalists were Tyler Brown (V) and Jeremy Payer (L) scoring 90. The remaining VHS team member scores were: Jeremi Cowman 91; Ryan Nelson 91; Matt Hollingsworth 102; and Bo Nelson 121.
Coach Hogen felt the team had made some improvement from the previous match but needs to put more emphasis on the 'short' game.
"With homecoming week, and three matches in four days, it's not surprising that these youngsters might not be giving their total attention or concentration to their individual, personal game," he said.
