Pella Boys Golfers Advance Out of Sectional Meet in Norwalk

The first hurdle in reaching the State Golf Tournament was cleared Wednesday by the Pella High boys golf team, as the Little Dutch earned a second place finish in their Sectional Meet at Norwalk.  Playing at the Willow Creek Golf Course, Pella carded a combined 319 – 11 strokes back of first place Centerville.  The Knoxville boys golf team competed at the same Sectional, finishing in seventh with a 354.  

Pella High’s Lucas Boyd led all golfers with an even-par 72 to earn medalist honors, while Knoxville’s Bryant McWilliams had the low round for the Panthers – placing fifth overall with a 78.  The Little Dutch now have a lengthy lay-off before the District Golf Meet, which will be held Friday, May 18th, at the River Valley Golf Course; hosted by ADM.
