FAIRFIELD – Fairfield won a boys golf meet Monday with a score of 164 against Southeast Conference foes Keokuk, which had a 198, and Fort Madison, which scored 218.
The Trojans are 2-0 and play Tuesday at the Albia Invite.
“This was a great start for the guys, not knowing how and who would respond after a year away from competitive golf,” Fairfield head coach Mick Flattery said. “Many of the guys shot better than the five qualification scores.”
The Trojans junior varsity posted a 210 score with Dave Eisner posting a 44.
Max Weaton led the varsity, carding a 37 with five pars and a birdie.
Sam Weaton carded a 40 with four pars in his round. Evan Haines had two pars as well and posted a 43. Jeremy Crile carded a 44, Nate Smithburg 45 and a 46 by Brad Smithburg included three pars.
“After a rough start. Max scrambled really, really well,” Flattery said. “Sam had a pretty good round for a freshman in his first start.”
