Centerville boys golf advances to state

WILLIAMSBURG — A Centerville Big Reds golf team hasn’t been present at the state golf meet since 1977. That streak ends in 2013, as the Centerville Big Reds carded 330 to place third in the district tournament on Friday. Since host school Williamsburg won the meet, 316 strokes, the top-three teams from the district advance instead of the top-two.

Last year, the Big Reds finished third at the district golf meet, missing the cutoff to qualify a team to the state tournament by one stroke.

“It wasn’t the fact that anyone beat us it was the fact that we just imploded,” Centerville head coach Mike Carney said. “But, you know, the important thing is we advanced. Next Friday, we start with a clean slate. I really thought that today was a bigger hurdle than the state meet. We had that thing hanging over our head from last year from Adel and these kids have posted such great scores over the last two years. This is by the far the worst score we’ve shot this season, and to still be able to advance says a lot. We just got to get this whipped from the memory banks and go up [to Ames] play good golf this weekend.

“We’re excited to go. I’m so happy for Logan and Quentin. They’re probably two of the best kids I’ve had the privilege of coaching since I’ve been in Centerville. They’re really great kids.”

Centerville’s Alex Moorman and Maquoketa’s Ty Thede were tied at the end of 18 holes at 72 strokes each. Moorman would birdie hole number 9 to win the playoff and pickup medalist honors.

Rounding out the top-four scores for the Centerville Big Reds was Logan Dabney with 84, Quentin Fowler with 85 and Blake Dabney with 89. Centerville’s Jacob Hargrave carded 96 on the day while Tanner Cowan shot a score of 114.
