Boys golf competed in its first tournament of the season at Lions Gate Golf Club on Monday, March 27, finishing with a team score of 346.

Sophomore Blake Aerni, who finished with a score of 88, believes that the league change is a part of what made the tournament competitive.

“This was our first EKL tournament that we played in,” Aerni said. “We didn’t play badly, but we definitely have room to improve.”

Junior Kyle Bonstetter, whose final score was a 93, believed the team’s performance was a result of nerves combined with the hard work put in so far this season.

“The conditions weren’t the greatest, but I think we were all a little bit nervous for the first tournament,” Bonstetter said. “We all tried our best but we can improve.”

With the team placing eighth out of ten, Aerni sees room for improvement in the future.

“It was our first tournament and we’re all still pretty young, so we don’t have a whole bunch of experience, [which] was probably against us, but then it helped that we all played varsity last year,” Aerni said.

The boys golf team next plays at Canyon Farms Golf Course on Monday, April 3 at 1 pm.

The results from Monday’s meet are as followed:

Sophomore Tanner Moore- 81

Sophomore Jack Matchette- 84

Sophomore Blake Aerni- 88

Sophomore Nick Davie- 93

Junior Kyle Bonstetter- 93

Junior Jack Roush- 96
