TMP third in home invitational

Traditionally, the Thomas More Prep-Marian boys’ golf team has a chance to play on its home course — Smoky Hill Country Club — at least two times during the season.
But when the Hays High School/Bob Blazer Invitational switched to a Tuesday earlier this year due to the Easter holiday, the Monarchs were unable to attend because of contractual obligations to the Larned tourney.
So Monday’s TMP Invitational at Par 71 Smoky was the Monarchs’ only chance for tournament action at home.
The scores, like most of the time at Smoky were a bit high, but TMP was able to nab a third-place team finish with a 358.
“Third place — we’ll take it, looking at what kind of numbers we put up,” Monarch coach Bryan VonFeldt said. “A 358 is not good enough, but it’s not really terrible.”
Goodland, the 3A state champion two seasons ago, took top team honors Monday with a 345, and Larned was second with a 347.
“Out here the scores are always a little higher. This course tears people up, the rough and the trees,” VonFeldt said.
The Monarchs did put two in the top 10. Max Megaffin fired a 45-38 — 83 to finish in seventh place, and Hayden Rohr was ninth with a 43-42 — 85.
“We need to knock it down into about the 340 or 335 range in the next two weeks, by the time regional rolls around,” VonFeldt said.
Lane Fisher shot a 46 on each end for a 92, and Dan O’Connor rounded out the team scoring with a 50-48 — 98. Keynan Hysten shot a 104, and Joe Heimann a 116 to round out the Monarchs' top six.
“We’ve been up and down. Dodge City was good (341). And even out in Goodland in the first tournament where we always play terrible, we didn’t play bad.
“But we didn’t play very good in Larned, or very good in Russell — so pretty up and down,” he added.
To make up for the loss of the Bob Blazer, the Monarchs will play in the Phillipsburg tournament next week — one they’ve played in the past. Next action, though, is Thursday in Ellsworth.

Ihrig takes top honors, Huxman second
Goodland senior Gage Ihrig, a future Wichita State University Shocker, was the top medalist Monday. Ihrig, who finished in the top 10 at the prestigious Hutchinson Invitational last week, fired a 74 Monday to win at Smoky Hill. Ihrig, last year’s fifth-place finisher in Class 4A, was joined Monday in the top 10 by brother Gannon Ihrig, who finished eighth with an 84.… WaKeeney-Trego Community’s Blake Huxman finished second with a 76 after his four-shot improvement to 36 on the back nine. Oberlin’s Kelly Brown was third after he improved by six shots to a 36 on the back to finish with a 78.… Ellis senior Skyler Tebo, who has signed with Garden City Community College, was fifth with a 39-42 — 81.
