KANSAS CITY — Great Bend’s Cole Streck fired 13-over-par 85 to tie for 35th place in the 5A state golf championship at Dubs’s Dread Golf Course Monday. The ninth-grader played 2-over through six holes before shooting 5-over on his final three holes.
Great Bend Panther ninth-grader Brantley Baldwin shot 98 to tie for 80th place at the challenging Dub’s Dread course.
“Dub’s Dread is a great golf course that offers challenges that we don’t often see,” said Great Bend coach Travis McAtee. “However, the course was set up fairly, and made for a challenging, but enjoyable state tournament. Our goal for our two freshmen was to gain valuable experience and learn lessons about how to handle yourself on a challenging golf course.”
Streck parred eight holes, four on each nine.
“Cole Streck played fairly steady,” said McAtee. “There were a couple shaky moments, but he was able to right the ship and shoot a pretty good number in his first state tournament. Although, he was a bit disappointed in a few holes, he managed a difficult course pretty well. Cole has high expectations. Cole will take what he learned today and use it to be better in the years to come. His future as a GBHS golfer is very bright.”
Baldwin struggled atthe outset, but played better on his second nine.
“He ran into trouble the last few holes on his first nine,” McAtee said. “After a disappointing first nine, he came back to play solid on the second nine and keep his score respectable. It is evident that Brantley is ‘all in’ for golf. I have no doubt he will put in the time and effort to be ready for his sophomore year.”
St. Thomas Aquinas (296) cruised to a 18-stroke victory over runner-up Wichita Kapaun-Mt. Carmel (314) at thge par 72 Dub’s Dread Course. Medalist Michael Winslow of St. Thomas Aquinas birdied six holes and finished birdie/birdie for a 3-under-par 69. The round was played in perfect 72-degree weather with 5 mph winds.
DOUBLE EAGLE — Great Bend assistant golf coach Steve Wolf scored an ALBATROSS (double eagle) with a 2 on a par 5. From 256 yards out on the par 5 17th hole, Wolf hit a 3-wood into the hole. This feat is much more rare than a hole in one.
