by Ella Gaes 

On April 28, the Pierce boys varsity golf team traveled to the Cedar View Country Club in Laurel. The meet was originally scheduled earlier in the season, but due to weather conditions was postponed. 

Pierce took five boys consisting of senior Kelton Anderson; juniors Abram Scholting, Dalton Svoboda, and Jacksen Wachholtz; and sophomore Travis Emory. Anderson shot a 102,  Scholting shot an 88, Svoboda shot a 103,  Wachholtz shot a 93, and Emory shot a 76.

Anderson commented on the day saying, “Although it was a very nice day to golf, our team's short game had not been the best we've seen due to the course's conditions. I am disappointed I won't be able to compete with my team after the season is over.” 

Head coach Rick Adams also mentioned, “Overall, it wasn't our best performance but Travis did very well placing second! We are looking forward to better performances down the road.”

The varsity golfers will compete on Thursday, May 7, in Battle Creek.
