Blue Jay golf struggles at Hawktree

Jamestown High School boys golf couldn't carry over its momentum from last weekend's East-West Classic on Friday, May 3.


Fresh off shooting a season-low 339 on Saturday, April 27, the Blue Jays' youth struggled at Hawktree Golf Course and finished ninth with a 378 during the St. Mary's Invite.

"Ninth place is not what we were feeling was in the future for us yesterday," said Jamestown coach John Samuelson. "Thursday's practice was a really solid practice that I'd say our left our team feeling pretty optimistic for today. Yet our youth really showed today.

"We haven't played Hawktree in three years and that was tough for us. The course intimidated us a lot. I believe the players would tell you this course made them nervous."

Hunter Mitchell paced the Blue Jays with a 88 on the day, while Riley Ova (95), Jed Truax (97) and Darynt Carroll (98) were all in the 90s.

"Hunter continued his solid play as the bright spot on a tough day," Samuelson said. "Today I think the wide-open views of Hawktree confused us and caused us to make mistakes with their club selection."

Jamestown travels back to the Capital City today for the Bismarck High Invite at Riverwood Golf Course.

"Tomorrow is Riverwood and the boys have to play smart golf," Samuelson said.
