The PHS boys golf team kept winning right into this week’s state tournament.
The Panthers added a district title last Monday at Hannibal’s Norwoods Golf Course, and qualifying for the Class 2 state tournament which was played at Bolivar Monday and Tuesday. Results were not available for this edition.
“The boys are very excited to head to the state championships,” said Coach Chris Parsons after the Panthers beat out seven other teams, topping the next best one by 20 strokes at the Class 2, District 2 tournament.
“There were a couple of iffy moments as we waited for district results, but as usual this group put it together in crunch time and finished the job,” Parsons said.
Winning has been something that has been a habit for the Panthers who won every tournament but one during the regular season, and the one they lost was by one stroke to Troy, a Class 5 team.
That had Parsons hopeful the team will make its mark at the state tournament which was played at Bolivar’s Silo Ridge Golf Course.
“We had the best score in the state out of all districts and look forward to hopefully raising the trophy,” Parsons said.
Palmyra shot a 354 at districts to beat out Linn (374), Lutheran St. Charles (404), Duchesne (406), Montgomery County (410), Hermann (434), Bowling Green (437) and Monroe City (438).
Three of Palmyra’s golfers finished in the top 10 including Laydin Lochman, fourth with nine-over-par 81; Jacob Webster, fifth with an 83; and Brady Shively, ninth with a 92.
Also competing were Elijiah Edwards, 17th with a 98 and Patrick Bailey, 38th with a 113.
Bowling Green’s Brayden Buffington took top honors with a 77.
