Eagle golf falls in close match
COLUMBIA CITY â€” Though Columbia Cityâ€™s golf team didnâ€™t end the night victorious Friday, the Eagles came the closest to beating Homestead since 2009.
Columbia City fell 157-162, but it wasnâ€™t from lack of talent on the Spartansâ€™ end.
Columbia Cityâ€™s Tyler Green finished on par with 36 strokes. Fellow Eagle Spencer Klimek also finished under 40, with a 39. Green rebounded from a 41 the night before, a prediction of Head Coach Andrew Thompsonâ€™s that held true.
â€śIt was nice to see Tyler recover from last night and shoot par at home,â€ť Thompson said.
Columbia City posted two other scores below 45, including Max Dryerâ€™s 43 and a 44 from Trent Murphy.
But none could predict a co-medalist performance from Homesteadâ€™s No. 4 linkster, Grant Jagger, who also scored par Friday night.
