Dodger boys host Joselyn Invite

The Fort Dodge boys golf squad hosted the Phil Joselyn Invitational Tuesday at the Fort Dodge Country Club.

The Dodgers played 10th out of 18 teams overall, as Ankeny Centennial finished first with a 296.

Dillon McCabe of Sioux City Heelan and Aaron Denucci from Waukee tied for first individually with 72s.

Leading the way for Fort Dodge was senior Drew Hansen, who carded a 78. Hanson had matching 39s on the front and back nine.

“Drew played well,” FDSH head coach Ryan Kinseth said. “That was the lowest score he’s ever shot in a high school meet.

“He just has to keep this confidence, because he has the talent to shoot this low more often.”

Thomas Lang carded an 80 (41-39), Thomas Hartley an 86 (44-42) and Devin Summers a 99 (48-51) to round out the FDSH?scoring.

“Thomas (Lang) just had a few bad holes, but if he gets those corrected, he’ll be in the 70s as well,” Kinseth said. “And Thomas (Hartley) can be regularly shooting in the low 80s if he can correct a few things.

“Overall, this is the best team score (343) we’ve had this year so I’m happy. It gives us more confidence to improve.”

The Dodgers head to Newton for another invitational on Thursday.
