Van-Far’s golf team beat third place Elsberry by 21 strokes to finish second in last week’s EMO Conference match to finish second overall at Arthur Hills Golf Course.
The Indians combined to shoot a 362 while Montgomery County held them off to win the conference title. Brayden Christian led the Indians with an 84 to finish second in the event.
Teammates Rylee Hanson and Jayson Orr each shot an 89 to tie for sixth place overall.
Ethan Winders was just three strokes back of an all-conference score as he shot a 99. Zane Allen was the fifth golfer taken and shot a 102.
Montgomery County’s Aubrey Nelson won the EMO Conference title after shooting a 76.


Community R-VI’s two golfers gained some valuable experience when they competed in last week’s EMO Conference golf match at Arthur Hills Golf Course.
Freshman Micah VanSkike shot a 116 and Weston Hart shot a 128.
“It was a beautiful day on the course,” said Community R-VI head coach Johnathan Guilkey as weather conditions haven’t been the best this Spring.
Neither golfer was closer than 20 strokes from an all-conference finish. Montgomery County’s Aubrey Nelson shot a 76 to win the conference title. The Wildcats also won a conference team title with a 342, beating second place Van-Far by 20 strokes.
