            West Hancock boys golf had a busy week with two weekday meets and half of a tournament in Hampton before leaving for prom activities.

            The Eagles put up good scores, beating North Union and Belmond-Klemme in Belmond on Apr. 29.

            They’d put up 213 for a score against North Union’s 219 and Belmond-Klemme’s 217.

            They’d get the second lowest score count against Forest City and North Iowa in Buffalo Center on Thursday; West Hancock had 201 strokes to North Iowa’s 216 and Forest City’s 179.

            Keifer Carlson earned the runner-up medal on Apr. 29 with a stroke count of 47.

            Ian Gobeli was the second leading golfer for the team with a 53.

            Both golfers put up a 47 and 48 in the next meet; Dalton Subject and Max Kumsher were in the low 50s as well.

            “The boys have improved in their games and are playing smart golf,” coach Melinda Tremmel said. “They are all staying consistent with scores in the upper 40's and low/mid 50's. It's keeping us at a competitive level and they're having fun.”
