Griswold Boys Eager for Redemption When They Host Sectional Golf Friday


(Griswold) One year ago Griswold struggled on their home course in the sectional golf tournament and failed to advance to districts. This year, after another strong regular season, the Tigers will again have the luxury of competing at home in the first round of the postseason. Their opportunity to redeem themselves comes Friday, but it won't be easy.

 

The loaded field includes Riverside, Nodaway Valley, East Mills, and Griswold as some of the top contenders. The top two teams advance to next Friday's sectional tournament at Crestwood Hills in Anita. If Griswold is in the top two, then a third team will be allowed to move on. Tiger head coach Jason Reynolds discusses the strength of the district.

Coach Reynolds believes it'll take a 330 or better to advance as a team. That equates to approximately an 82 average among your top four golfers. A year ago Griswold was the Western Iowa Conference Tournament champion, but then turned around and failed to advance postseason. Coach Reynolds says that frustration should help this year.
