Smithville’s Junior Varsity boy’s golf team had the chance to show off their skills by themselves.

On Thursday, April 20, Cameron Oesterle, Nathan Allen, Blake Ackerman, Grant Fisher and Robert Schwind went to Chillicothe’s Green Hills Golf Course to play in the first JV tournament where Varsity wasn’t competing with them.

“Not much was different,” Oesterle said. “We still warmed up on the range and had fun even though varsity wasn’t there.”

The team respectively shot 91, 93, 95, 102 and 107 and finished in the top half of the competing teams.

“It was weird to shoot 95, I’ve never shot that low,” Ackerman said.

Along with the team’s success in their first solo tournament, they represented Smithville well.

“I didn’t just think about myself,” Fisher said, “I played with a guy from Benton, and he was scared of his drive so I helped him with that. I felt really good about helping him.”

Only a couple of shots kept Oesterle, Allen and Ackerman out of the top ten but they’ve spent the week practicing with Coach Parker to improve on their weak spots.

The next event of the season is on Monday, April 24 in St. Joseph on Fairview golf course.

“I’m really just looking forward to improving on my 102 because I know I can do better,” Fisher said.
