The PHS boys varsity golf team conquered the Clarence Cannon Conference at the league tournament at the Norwoods Golf Course in Hannibal Thursday
The Panthers carded a 348 to easily out-shoot the second-place team from South Shelby (369) as well as everyone else including Centralia (372), Highland (411), Macon (418), Clark County (440), Monroe City (443) and Brookfield (466).
“We didn’t have our greatest day, but got the job done,” said Coach Chris Parsons. “The course played tough, and the wind was not our friend.
“I’m very proud of the boys for staying strong and playing all 18 and giving us a chance.
“There were several frustrations throughout the day, but they kept their heads and played through it.”
For example, Jacob Webster was five shots back with three holes to go, and managed to come back to win top individual honors with a 12-over-par 84.
Palmyra ended up with four golfers in the top seven with Brady Shively second at 85, Elijah Edwards, sixth at 89, and Laydin Lochman tied for seventh at 90.
All four earned all-conference honors with Webster and Shively making the first team and Edwards and Lochman making the second team.
Patrick Bailey shot a 99 to tie for 18th out of 40 golfers.
The Panthers also dominated a four-team event at Hannibal’s Norwoods Golf Course Tuesday.
Palmyra carded a 346, which was 101 strokes better than Monroe City (447). Also competing were Clark County (459) and Highland (493).
Palmyra’s four top players ended up finishing that way individually, with Webster earning top honors with a 12-over-par 84.
Also contributing were Shively, 86, Lochman, 87, Edwards, 89, and Bailey, 98.
Palmyra’s junior varsity squad won the nine-team Highland JV Tournament Friday at Three Pines Golf Course.
The team shot a 375 to top the next closest competitors from Hannibal by 17 strokes.
Playing for Palmyra were Aaron Ritchey (90), Dreighton Sprinkle (90), Jeremiah Edwards (96), Brett Tuter (99) and Augustus Meyer (105).
