Dabney leads Centerville to title

ALBIA — Meet medalist honors by Logan Dabney led the way to a winning day for the Centerville boys golf team Tuesday at the Albia Invitational. Dabney’s winning round of four-over par 76 led the Big Reds to a team total of 317 and a seven-shot win over the Fairfield Trojans at the Albia Country Club.

Logan beat out brother Blake Dabney for the medalist honors with the Blake sharing runner-up honors with Fairfield’s top golfer. Matthew Carr finished in a tie for second place two shots away from the meet medalist position after firing a six-over par round of 78.

The hosting Blue Demons came in third on their home course with a team round of 351. Joey Sinnott finished with a round of 85 to lead Marty Hermsen’s squad.
