Meade High School came within two strokes of sending its team to participate at the Class 2A State Golf Tournament Monday at the Crestwood Country Club.

    But while the team didn’t get a chance to play, sophomore Adrian Pfannenstiel did. Pfannenstiel shot a 90 to tie for 37th place, almost exactly in the middle of the 73-person pack.     


 Meade High School came within two strokes of sending its team to participate at the Class 2A State Golf Tournament Monday at the Crestwood Country Club.
    But while the team didn’t get a chance to play, sophomore Adrian Pfannenstiel did. Pfannenstiel shot a 90 to tie for 37th place, almost exactly in the middle of the 73-person pack.               

    Pfannenstiel shot a 43 on the front end, before finishing up with a 47 on the back nine.
    “It was a good experience,” Pfanenstiel said. “I did not play the way I wanted to, but it was a good experience to play.”
    It was Pfanenstiel’s first state appearance.
    “He got a little nervous early,” Meade head coach Scott Moshier said. “He kind of calmed down and hit some big shots. Nothing makes you feel better than a couple of 290-yard drives. That helps your confidence.”
    And while Kinsley sent its whole team last year, Reed Strate represented the Bulldogs this season.
    He finished one stroke ahead of Pfannenstiel, putting him in a five-way tie for 32nd place.
    “I was proud of the shots I had,” Strate said. “I kept it in play quite a bit. I had a lot of long drives and I hit the greens well. I had a couple bad shots that got under some trees.”
    St. Mary’s Colgan won the team side, shooting a 314 to push past Syracuse (335).                     The Panthers were led by the top two overall placers, juniors Kolter Krumsick and Kelley Thompson, who shot a 75 and a 76, respectively.

Class 3A
    HAYS — Cimarron’s Genare Woofter shot a 96 in his first appearance in the Class 3A state tournament at Smoky Hill Country Club.
    “He really played pretty good with the conditions,” Cimarron head coach Lance Walker said. “It is a hard course. A 96 is nothing to frown on, but he was a little bummed.”
    Walker said he is excited to have Woofter back for another year.
    “He will be one of the leaders next year,” Walker said. “He will only learn from this experience. He is already talking about what he has learned for next year.”
