JACKSON — The Worthington boys’ and girls’ golf teams each dropped duals against Jackson County Central on Thursday.
On the boys’ side, the Huskies won the match 175-178. There was a tie between JCC’s Joe Brinkman and WHS’s Alex Kremer for low medalist, with each golfer shooting 42s.
Making up the rest of JCC’s 175 was Jack Ringkob (43), Kyle Edlin (45), Kyle Kapplinger (45), John Marker (48) and Matt Ringkob (48).
Making up the rest of the Trojans’ 178 was Jake Woll (44), Will Mulder (45), Jacob Weg (47), Seth Meier (49) and Zach Heidibrink (51).
“The boys’ meet was very close,” WHS coach Ron Wood said. “They shot just about the average of what they’ve been shooting all season. They lost by only three strokes, and those strokes could’ve been gotten anywhere by anybody today. It just goes to show that it might not seem like a big deal to throw shots away, but they add up and eventually make a big difference.”
On the girls’ side, the Huskies’ won the match 190-209. JCC’s Kaylee Benson was the low medalist, shooting a 44 on the day.
Making up the rest of JCC’s 190 was Emma Lilleberg (46), Alison Benson (50), Shelby Benson (50), Lexie Hoffman (51) and Abby Benson (52).
Making up WHS’s 209 was Kate Lesnar (46), Mariah Haffield (54), McKenzie Hurley (54), Genna Putnam (55), Tyree Murray (56) and Morgan Harberts (57).
“It was one of those days where the girls probably shouldn’t have even gotten out of bed,” Wood said. “The girls shot 19 strokes above their season average and it was just a bad performance up and down the boards.
“Jackson is a very difficult course to play with a lot of blind shots. It’s a strange course and it got the best of us today.”
Worthington’s next outing is today against Western Christian, while JCC takes on Redwood Valley on Tuesday.
