On Monday, the Community R-6 golf team competed at the Class 1 District 3 Tournament at Tanglewood golf course in Fulton.
The R-6 team finished third, the highest finish an R-6 team has ever had at the district tournament. They beat Father Tolton, Glasgow, Harrisburg, New Bloomfield, Paris, Sturgeon and Van-Far. Louisiana took first and Fayette took second.
R-6 had three district medalists: Caleb Bertels, a top 10 medalist, Chris Wieberg and Sean Wilson. Those three boys will compete at the sectional tournament next week.
"I am very pleased with our play at district. The course was wet and challenging, and our boys hung in there. We finished higher than I hoped we would so it was very satisfying. Sean and Chris did not even take up golf until their sophomore years, so they have done very well. Caleb has been the team anchor and will be missed," remarked R-6 Coach Vicki Briggs.
