Tritons Claim ICCAC Triangular

Tritons Claim ICCAC Triangular

OKOBOJI - The Iowa Central men's golf team fired a 301 to best Iowa Lakes and North Iowa Area here Tuesday at Brooks Golf Club.

The Tritons finished four shots ahead of the Lakers, with the Trojans firing a 310.

Austin Erickson, Joe Forsting and Justin Schipper all shot matching 75s to lead Iowa Central, with Kyle Wille adding a 76. Simon Mitchell shot a 77 as well.

"We got off to a little bit of a rough start today but I was very happy with how we fought back and played a very solid final nine holes," said Iowa Central head coach Kris Graewin. "I was probably happiest with how Simon Mitchell played today. He started out rough with a six-over par front nine and then bogeyed his 10th hole before coming back with three birdies on his next eight holes to shoot one-under par, 35. Even though he didn't count his score in our team score it showed the maturity of Simon to keep battling when things weren't going great.

"We're also a little banged up right now with a couple of weird injuries so I'm always going to be happy when we come out on top. .We didn't have our best golf today but we were able to figure out a way to get some solid scores into the clubhouse and that's going to be key when we get to later tournaments and in the spring at our regional. We have a little bit of a break now before ramping up and finishing with four tournaments in 10 days on the men's side. For how crazy of a year it's been, I'm thrilled that we're able to be out and competing."

Kelly Boleyn finished seventh with a 93 in women's action for the Tritons. 

"Kelly struggled a little bit (Tuesday)," Graewin said. "She's been playing some very good golf recently and just had a tough day today but that's golf. It can be a very rewarding game and it can also make you want to pull your hair out. We did get some good news with Kelly being named the ICCAC women's golfer of the week. I told her after the round that she had won that and that she has the ability for it to not be the only time she does either.

"We'll get her back on the driving range this week during practice and get some minor things corrected for next week at the RedTail Fall Invitational."
