The two Eads JV golfers included Aaron Musgrave who shot a 97, good enough for fifth place; and Colin Nelson shooting a 108 and coming in 8th place.
Head coach Justin McLoud said of the Eads Tournament performance by his golfers, “I was happy to see Brentley get back on track. I know he wasn’t completely satisfied with his score, but he is heading in the right direction before regionals. Adyn and Karston are still staying consistent each week. They both were pretty banged up after their football game against Hugo, but still made the top 10. Aaron and Colin both had a good day on the course. Aaron was leading the JV contest most of the day but had some bad luck on the back nine.
Eads was scheduled to compete at the Lamar Invitation Tournament on Aug. 31.
