IRON MOUNTAIN — The host teams also proved to be best teams at the Kingsford Quad Meet on Monday at the Pine Grove Country Club.

Well, the Kingsford boys varsity golf team did have to share a bit. The Flivvers and Westwood each tallied team scores of 169, with Kingsford needing to win the tiebreaker to come out on top.

Cole Myllyla and Lance Harry paced Kingsford, each shooting a 41 in the nine-hole event. Teammates Troy Watt and Jake Crockford weren’t far behind, tallying a 44 and 43, respectively.

The Flivvers, however, weren’t the tops in the individual standings where Norway’s Drew Anderson posted a match-best 37 and Iron Mountain’s Cooper Pigeon (38) was just a stroke behind. Garret Sundberg hit a 40 on the day, as the top three linksters medaled at the event.

Iron Mountain placed third in the boys team standings, with Pigeon, Joey Colavecchi (46), Sam Yake (51) and Brett Ramme (56) combining for a 191. That was four strokes better than fourth-place Norway, which finished with a 195 including scores from Anderson, Evan Moyer (51), Tyler Parker (52) and Tyler Spring (55).

In the girls division, Bryonna Sanders led the way for the Flivvers with a match-best 48. She was followed by teammates Maggie Menghini (55), Lily Wilcox (57) and Amanda Yu (62) who combined for a winning score of 222. That was more than enough to beat Westwood (247) and Iron Mountain, which did not post a team score.

Sanders, Iron Mountain’s Rediet Husing (53) and Westwood’s Laci Moffatt (51) all medaled in the girls division.

“Sanders had a very nice round,” said Kingsford girls coach Lisa Harry. “This was her best score this year. I’m happy for her. She works hard in practice.”
