Mother Nature did no favors for Central Christian College’s golf team the last two days.

The Tigers held their largest-ever tournament at Turkey Creek as 126 men and women took part. However, the men’s portion was shortened to 36 holes and the women’s event to 18.

The CCC women took fifth place, led by MaiLeAna Bruce, who had a 92. Other CCC scores were Kari Kirl (95), Vanessa Warner (102), Sarah Gordzelik (104) and Summer Bruce (108).

Barton County, led by medalist Velma Efraimsson’s sterling effort of 75, was the team champion with 344, 18 shots better than Bethany.

The Swedes were led by Aspen Byant, whose 83 was good for second. Other Swede scores were Savannah Pinson (88), Marisa Loya (93), Kayla Tunley (98) and Joie Francis Ramirez (101).

The men’s tourney was unusual in that Dodge City’s Stanley Lewis was the medalist with rounds of 69-73-142, even though he played as an individual and not as part of the winning Dodge City team, which shot a two-round total of 587, six shots ahead of Bethany.

Bethany, which had three teams entered, was led by Scott Farrall, who had a 71-72-143.

Other BC scores for its top team were Josh Meeks (74-74-148), Nathan Limbacher (72-77-149), Jordan Della Guistina (76-77-153) and Juan Pablo Sin (76-81-157).

Central was sixth, led by Collin Duckworth (76-78-154). Other Central scores were Tyler Swanson (75-83-158), Lowell Stephens (85-89-174), Matt Rettinger (86-90-176) and Trehern McGill (97-87-184). 

CCC’s JP Ray competed as an individual and matching 77s for 154. Also for the Tigers, other scores were Nathan Segler (84-86-170) and Doug Blanchard (92-88-180).

Bethany’s other scores were Birgir Magnusson (76-75-151), Juan Garcia (78-76-154), Jorge Monagas (76-81-157), Jose Maria Cunha (79-81-16), Simon Bourel (74-86-160), Stefan Sigmundson (80-80-160), James Fisher (75-90-165), Will Gibson (79-86-165), Ben Wolfman (84-88-172), Conner Lee (99-98-188), Austin Hampton (92-78-170), Jace Ochs (82-91-173), Ross Boling (102-91-193) and Cody Jiles (100-98-198).
