(Council Bluffs) It has been a great week for the Atlantic boys’ golf team. Tuesday, they captured the team title at the Shenandoah Tourney, and followed that with a win at the Lewis Central Golf Tournament at Fox Run Thursday with a team total of 303.
Atlantic Senior Evan Schuler continues to play outstanding golf. In each of his rounds this season he has been under par and today was no exception. Schuler, who has medaled in every tournament this season, topped the field again today at the Council Bluffs course. Schuler shot a one under 70 and Jake Olsen finished third with a four over par 75.
“It was really cold to start with, about 32-degrees, and I think it took a little while for our kids to get rolling, but once they did I think they shot pretty well,” stated Atlantic Head Coach Ed Denbeste. “Despite the rough greens, Evan shot really well, particularly chipping and putting. It was nice to see our number two guy Jake Olsen play really well, and Cooper Zablocki had a really good front nine and finished in ninth place with a 78.”
Next in line were Sam Renaud, Zac Stork, and Kyle Nelsen.
“Sam Renaud, despite having trouble with one hole shot a nine over par 80,” Denbeste said. “Zac Stork had a great score today, what a comeback. He didn’t shoot well at Shenandoah and was kind of frustrated, so it was nice to see him finish today with an 81.”
Kyle Nelsen finished his round with an 84.
“All of our guys shot below 85 which is 13 over par and under and Evan Schuler’s one under par, wow, what a score.”
East Mills finished second in the fifteen field tournament with a 319.
