FT. DODGE - The Mt. Pleasant boys' golf team had some work to do in day two at the state golf meet, but they never got the chance. A rainy Friday morning canceled day two of all three state golf meets in Iowa, ending each tournament after one day of action.
The decision by the IAHSAA to cancel day two was met with quite a bit of negative feedback on the association's twitter page, but the IAHSAA stuck with the official rule and golfers had to settle for finishing with their day one scores.
That meant Mt. Pleasant ended the tournament with a 10th-place finish in Class 3A, shooting a 335. Nevada won the tournament after shooting a 300 the first day, and Spirit Lake was second, at 307.
Jake Moffett finished the meet tied for 19th, shooting 77 on day one. Trace White tied for 39th, shooting an 83.
Rhett Zeglen shot an 87 for third best on the team and tied for 55th overall. Brevin Wilson was one stroke behind him, tying for 59th, at 88. Bailey Shelledy tied for 61st with an 89, and Reece Kempker shot an 86, which pitted him in 68th place.
It was the final meet of the careers of three Panther golfers; White, Shelledy and Zeglen. White and Shelledy were also members of Mt. Pleasant's sixth-place team in 2017.
Winfield-Mt. Union's Jarod Kadel ended the Class 1A tournament in a tie for 24th, shooting an 87 on Thursday in Newton. It was also Kadel's last high school meet.
West Delaware's Brandon Larsen was the state champion at the Class 3A site in Ft. Dodge, finishing at 69. Notre Dame's Matthew Briggs finished second after shooting a 71.
In the Class 1A tournament, Edgewood-Colesburg's Ethan Streicher shot a 72 for fist place, and Harris-Lake Park's Lucas Gunderson ended Thursday's action with a 74.
