COLUMBIA CITY â€” Though Columbia Cityâ€™s golf team faced its fourth loss of the season, the Eagles recorded their best overall score of the season Thursday night at Eagle Glen against Canterbury.
Columbia City lost 160-172 to the Cavaliers, but the score of 172 was encouraging, according to Eagle Head Coach Andrew Thompson.
The season-best score came amidst three Eagle linksters shooting over eight strokes on the ninth hole.
Even with five or six strokes knocked off their score, the Eagles would have had a hard time beating Canterbury, which is considered one of the top teams in the state.
Canterburyâ€™s Ethan Brinkman was the medalist with a 37.
Columbia Cityâ€™s top golfer was Dustin Parrett with a 41. Max Dryer and Derek Philbee were two strokes behind with 43s. Trent Murphy rounded off the Eaglesâ€™ top five with a 45.
