Thomas More Prep-Marian boys' golf coach Bryan VonFeldt said his team is just one player short of being able to really compete with the top teams in Class 3A.

He said he has a number of players with the potential to do it, but he just needs one of them to emerge and shoot in the 80s.

"We've got two weeks (until the regional tournament)," VonFeldt said. "Something is going to have to click for one of them."

The Monarchs finished fifth with a 354 Monday at their home invitational at Smoky Hill Country Club.

Two 3A schools finished first and second.

Goodland won the meet with a 336, while Phillipsburg finished second with 344.

"We knew going in that Goodland and Phillipsburg are two of the top teams, especially in this part of the state, in 3A," VonFeldt said. "Luckily for us, neither one of them are in our regional."

However, Ellsworth, which finished just three shots behind TMP, will be at its regional, as well as Russell, who was playing Monday without its top golfer Jordan Hecker.

TMP got good performances from senior Brady Rohr and junior Kade Megaffin, who each medaled.

Rohr led the Monarchs with an 80 and seventh-place finish, and Megaffin placed 10th with a score of 85.

"I had a rough front 9," Rohr said. "That was probably my biggest problem, but on the back 9, I was able to turn it around and shoot a good score."

Senior Kelton Schuckman has shot in the low 80s before, but he struggled on a few holes and shot a 94.

Freshman Lane Fisher had a strong day and shot a 95 to round out TMP's scoring.

However, VonFeldt said his team will have to play better and use more "damage control" if it wants to compete at state.

"We've got to have our top three play well," Vonfeldt said, "and we need a four, five and six man to come in and post a couple decent numbers for us to give us something else to round out our four scores with."

Goodland's top two golfers led the way for the Cowboys' first-place finish. Goodland won despite having its fourth golfer voluntarily withdraw after throwing a club.

Gage Ihrig and Joel Linn recorded scores of 77 and 78 to finish third and fourth, respectively.

"(Ihrig and Linn) had excellent rounds today," said Goodland coach Terry Daise.

"I was a little disappointed that our fourth guy had to withdraw, but other than that, we had a pretty good day."

Oberlin's Kade Brown won the meet with a 72, and teammate Garrett Berry finished sixth with a 79.

Colby finished third as a team, but only Konnor Kriss medaled, finishing fifth with a 78.

Phillipsburg's Ryan Hoover was his team's best player Monday, finishing ninth with an 84.

Ellis finished eighth without its top golfer.

Sophomore Skyler Tebo, a Class 2A all-state golfer, was disqualified after having a scorecard error.

Senior Austin Lopez and junior Gage Younger led the way for the Railroaders with scores of 90 each.
