COFFEYVILLE — Iola High’s Mustangs had a disappointing end to the 2009 golf season. The final Southeast Kansas League designated tournament was Wednesday at Coffeyville.
Only two Iola varsity players competed in the tournament and only one finished. Iola’s team four-man score included three junior varsity players.
Junior Chris Harrington was the lone IHS varsity player to finish the 18-hole tournament. He shot a 102 (52-50) which was fourth lowest for the team.
Freshmen Doug Stewart, Kris Collins and Nick Jacobs played the Coffeyville course for the Mustangs. Stewart (49-49) and Collins (47-51) each shot a 98. Jacobs carded a 99 with rounds of 46 and 53.
According to IHS golf coach Rick Horton, senior Austin Ellis was disqualified from the tournament when he broke a club over his knee. Senior Chase Ellis did not show up for the event, senior Bryce Burris did not play because of surgery and junior Alec Peterson had finals at school.
Chanute won the tournament with a 333, one stroke ahead of Fort Scott at 334. Iola was eighth with a 397.
Chanute’s Jeremy Gant won the tournament with a 75 and claimed the SEK individual championship with a 296 score for the four SEK designated tournaments. Fort Scott’s Cole Murrin was second in the SEK standings with a 305.
