The Spartan Golf team enjoyed two days of golf at Lake Panorama Gold Course in Panora this past weekend to compete in the AIB Invitational on September 26-27. The beautiful weather brought in many low, sub-par scores from the host school, who won the event. The Spartans were led by Sophomore Matt Righi. The rest of the Spartan team struggled to find their stride in competition.
The Spartans will play next Sunday, October 5, at the Waldorf Invitational in Forest City.
On Monday, September 22, the Spartan golf team traveled to Polk City to participate in the Grand View University Invite. Spartan golfers Matt Righi, Chasen Selsor, and Delson Grantham competed in the event, held at one of Iowa’s most difficult golf courses, Tournament Club of Iowa, against some of the state’s more elite golf programs. With beautiful weather and low winds, the only real challenges were difficult pin placements and fast greens. Righi led the Spartans with a very respectable 82.
The Spartans will be attending the AIB Invite at Lake Panorama starting on Friday for weekend tournament. The course will provide a beautiful backdrop for the team to improve on their scores.
