The David City boys golf team will be headed to the state tournament after finished second as a team at the C-2 district tournament on Monday in Beemer. 

The Scouts shot a combined 376 and were led by senior Will Danielson who shot an 83. Sophmore Jordan Kracl also impressed with a score of 87.

David City finished second, four shots ahead of third place Yutan for the automatic bid. The top three teams qualified for state.  

Keyan Helgoth, Ethan Zegers and Wiley Hein will round out the rest of the David City squad at state. 

Helgoth shot a 100, Zegers carded a 106 and Hein tallied a 109.

"I continue to be amazed at how much this golf team is willing to accept the team aspect of high school golf," coach Tom Van Winkle said in comments sent to The Banner-Press. "I thought our ability to grind out golf shots when the course is so tough on each person mentally was the difference. "Indian Trails can beat you up physically and mentally and I thought that our golf team really accepted the challenge and fought to the bitter end today.

Crossroads Conference Tournament 

The Shelby-Rising City golf team put together its fifth straight Crossroads Conference championship at Geneva on May 6.

The Huskies shot a 191, defeating second place Exeter-Milligan by 23 strokes. 

The competition was cut to nine holes after lighting and poor weather derailed the original 18-hole plans. 

"It was great to win the Crossroads Conference for the fifth straight year and walk away with eight medals," said head coach Jon Riggs in comments sent to The Banner-Press. "Having 13 golfers has led to plenty of competition throughout the year that has helped the team improve. We were very fortunate to be able to bring all of them to the golf meet.

Grant Brigham won the CRC individual championship after shooting a 44. 

"Some of the golfers on the team did not start off as well as I would have liked, but a couple of golfers did," said Riggs. "Grant Brigham did a great job again managing the course by playing only his irons."

Carter Fjell was two shots behind his teammate and was second on the individual leaderboard.

"Carter Fjell also kept on putting himself in good position off the tee box," Riggs said. 

Connor Morrison shot a 50, which was good enough to tie for fourth place. 

"Senior Connor Morrison has been struggling, but it was nice to see him swinging well," Riggs said. 

Bailey Belt and Alec Wieseman each had rounds of 51, earning them sixth place.
