Doyle finishes fourth

LIVERMORE – Entering the second round just one shot off the pace, St. Edmond’s Eddie Doyle finished fourth at this weekend’s Class 2A state golf meet.

The Gael junior fired an 81 Saturday at Spring Valley Golf Course, recording a two-day score of 157.

“I was very proud of Eddie for the kind of year he had,” said SEHS head coach Dan Streit. “He was real happy for how he capped off the season.”

As a team, the Gaels checked in sixth with a 691. St. Edmond, which was making its first state appearance since 2004, notched a 354 yesterday.

Sophomore Michael Faiferlick (84-84-168), freshman Harrison Mayer (89-94-183), senior David Flattery (90-95-185), junior Cal Coleman (99-99-198) and freshman Robert Flattery (88-W-W) were the other Gael competitors.

“Obviously the weather conditions weren’t good for anybody, but I think we learned a lot,” Streit said. “We have a good young team that is anxious to get back (to state). We lost one senior in David Flattery that really contributed, but we should have some good times coming up the next couple of seasons.”

Emmetsburg junior Mike Myers tied for fifth overall with OA-BCIG’s Dakota Miller, carding a 75-83-158. Myers led the field after Friday’s action.

Waterloo Columbus (313-319-632) and PCM Monroe (316-331-647) were first and second in the 2A team race.

Jack Conway (79-71-150) claimed 2A individual medalist honors, while Des Moines Christian’s Ryan Minor (76-76-152) was the runner-up.
