A busy week for the Ravens Golf team
The Ravens scored 6 strokes better at Heritage Oaks on Monday, than their previous win over Wapello just a short time ago. Everyone either individually scored the same or better than the last time we were there.
Luke and London Schrock led the Ravens with 3 pars each. Luke came close to making birdies today by inches. London was hitting the ball hard. The wind was blowing so strongly today that London hit a pitching wedge nearly 180 yds. Jace Rempel had one par, shooting his lowest round of the year. Josiah Beachy had one bogey and some close putts. He also shot his lowest round of the year. Alex Niemeyer had 4 bogeys, tying his lowest round of the year. He also had his longest drive of the year, 245 yds on the par 5 7th hole.
Coach Phil Schintler commented, “All in all, Mepo shot really well. We still improved our game with some great shots and some lower scores as a whole. It is a slow process of putting good shots together. I am definitely pleased with everyone’s performance today.”
Hillcrest fell to Mediapolis 213-195.
London Schrock 48

The next afternoon, Hillcrest Academy finished 2nd at the triangular, posting their best score of the season, a 199. Keota shot a 181, while English Valleys shot a 204. The Ravens were led by Jace Rempel, who shot his first sub 50 score of the year with a 46. Jace had two pars today and had one eagle putt attempt after getting to the 460 yard par 5 #3 hole in two shots. Luke Schrock finished with 4 pars today and also shot a 46. London Schrock had one par today and posted a 52. Alex Niemeyer stepped it up tonight posting his best score of the year with a 55. No pars, but the most consistent round of the year, shooting his best 3 rounds of the year his last 3 outings. Josiah Beachy finished with a 64 and hopes to get under the 60 mark this Thursday.
Coach Schintler said, “The guys are continually improving day by day. The 199 bested their previous high of 211. I’m looking forward to improving upon this 6-3 start.”
