Borgia’s boys golf juggernaut claimed another major trophy Thursday.
The Knights won the Warrenton Tournament White Division title at the Warrenton Golf Course.
“We ended up playing pretty well,” Borgia Head Coach Dave Neier said. “The course played pretty tough with the wind and they placed the pins in the toughest positions. Our kids kept with it and battled and ended up with some pretty good scores.”
Borgia shot 301 to win the team title by four strokes over Timberland.
Other teams in the White Division were Wentzville Liberty (322), Lutheran South (326), Ft. Zumwalt South (332), O’Fallon Christian (339), Francis Howell (340), Washington (341), Francis Howell Central (360), St. Charles West (396), Francis Howell North (406) and Holt (443). Sullivan brought one golfer.
Borgia’s Tommy Alferman and Sullivan’s Bennett Tiefenbrunn each shot 72, two strokes over par, to tie for the overall lead. Tiefenbrunn was given the edge on a scorecard playoff.
Four members of the Knights were among the medalists. Mark Maguire shot 74 to place fourth. Zach Unnerstall was 11th at 77 and Will Schroeder shot 78 to place 14th.
Borgia’s other golfer was Brady Linz, who shot 84.
“We had some pleasant surprises like Mark Maguire shooting 74,” Neier said. “Tommy and Will have been pretty good with consistent scores. We were really satisfied with the effort.”
Schroeder additionally won the longest drive competition.
“That’s the first time we’ve ever had anyone do that,” said Neier.
