The Van Meter Boys Varsity golfers opened the 2021 season with a solid 2nd place finish in a WCAC Meet at Lakeview Country Club in Winterset. The Bulldogs come into the 2021 season with a talented, but inexperienced team. The Bulldogs are led by Junior Dylan Sherlock who is coming off of an 8th Place finish at the 2A State Meet in 2019. Seniors Jacob Blomgren and Zach Pleggenkuhle also bring leadership to the team. The Varsity squad also includes Sophomores Carter Durflinger and Hagan Miller along with Freshman John Braun.
Monday’s meet matched the Bulldogs up with Panorama and I-35. Van Meter and Panorama both had team scores of 173 for the meet. Panorama ended up winning the meet after the tiebreaker was used. Van Meter was led by Carter Durflinger who shot a 38 in his first Varsity meet. Dylan Sherlock shot 43, Jacob Blomgren 44, Zach Pleggenkuhle 48 and the duo of Hagan Miller and John Braun both played well in their Varsity debut.
The Bulldogs next meet is Monday, April 12th at Don Williams Golf Course in Ogden.
