COLUMBIA, MO. • Chaminade won the team title of the Columbia Classic boys golf tournament Monday at A.L. Gustin Golf Course by besting a field that included some of the top players in the state.
The Red Devils fired 298, the same as Rock Bridge, based on the scores of the top four golfers for each team. The tiebreaker was the unused fifth score for each team, and the Red Devils won with an 80 from senior Joe Terschulse that actually was better than Rock Bridge's fourth-best score.
Chaminade was led by a 3-over 73 from senior Drew Walsh. His younger brother, sophomore Zach Walsh, followed at 74 along with senior Patrick Mooney and junior Colin Stolze had a 77 to round out the team scoring.
Ross Steelman of the host Bruins won the medalist crown with a 70. He was one of four returning players from Rock Bridge's fourth-place Class 4 state finisher from last season.
De Smet, which won the Greg Bantle Memorial last week on a playoff, finished third in the team standings at 301 behind a 73 from Jack Klingler and 74 from Michael Allgeier.
Last season, Chaminade was the third-place team in the Class 4 state tournament and De Smet was fifth. Rockhurst, last season's Class 4 runner-up, finished fourth with a 310.
Individually, defending Class 2 state champ Jack Parker of Tolton tied for third with a 73 and defending Class 4 champ Noah Anderson finished tied for 12th at 75.
