Lynx shoot a 143, tie school record

WEBSTER CITY – A perfect afternoon for golf turned into the perfect setting to post a new school record for Webster City yesterday at Briggs Woods Golf Course.

Well, to tie one anyway.

A near flawless round from its four scorers allowed Webster City to card a 1-under par 143 team total to tie the nine-hole school record. Suffice to say, that score easily gave the Lynx a North Central Conference triangular victory over rivals Clear Lake and Fort Dodge St. Edmond.

Both visiting teams turned in scores of 160. Clear Lake took the runner-up spot on the fifth score tiebreaker.

Alec Fuhs and Drew Fielder both blistered the front nine for 1-under par 35s, Avery Fuhs came in at even-par 36 and Logan Yates carded a 37.

“Everybody is really starting to play up to their potential,” WCHS head coach Dave Brighton said. “I was very proud of everybody.

“We kept saying that we’ve got to go lower. Well, we’re there finally.”

WCHS lowered its nine-hole average to 147.60 – tops in the state of teams that have recorded more than two duals into quikstats.

Alec Fuhs’ round got off to a bumpy start with a bogey at the par-5 first. He put it into the red with back-to-back birdies at the par-5 fourth and par-4 fifth holes.

Fielder, playing in the No. 5 position for the Lynx, notched eight pars and a birdie at the fifth.

“Drew has just played outstanding these last three meets,” Brighton said.

Sean Vogelbacher added a non-counting 40 and John Ferrell turned in a 42.

Thomas Storbeck and Kyle Calagus both shot rounds of 38 for Clear Lake. Mike Faiferlick and Harrison Mayer had matching 39s for St. Edmond.
