The Arlington Eagles earned fifth out of 11 teams Friday during their home invitational at Fremont Golf Club.
Coach Scott Parson's team finished with 378 strokes — 55 more than first-place Yutan. Eddie Rosenthal led AHS with a 14th-place finish, carding 90 strokes over 18 holes.
On No. 7, BNSF Railway was making loud, possibly distracting noise while repairing the track next to the green. The Eagles went about their business anyway.
First, Jayden Thompson — who finished with 103 swings — hit a lengthy tee shot down the middle of the fairway. Rosenthal, who made a birdie on No. 17, then hit stuck his second shot to the green.
Josh Iossi, meanwhile, struggled on the hole, dealing with a tree and a sand trap.
“Honestly, I was doing pretty good until that hole,” he said.
Ultimately, the senior shot a 92 for 18th place, while Josh Hamre carded a 93 and took 19th. Austin Smutz, who notched a birdie on the par-3 hole No. 2, took 106 swings for the day.
In addition, Arlington fielded a second lineup on their home course. Andy Misfeldt shot a 114, Jacob Meehan a 122, Ken Eppenbaugh a 140 and Jacob Strom a 141, respectively.
Eagles tie for 5th on road
Before playing the Fremont course Friday, the Eagles played 18 in North Bend on Wednesday. Coach Parson's team claimed fifth with 345 swings.
“The shorter course and a good day with softer, freshly rained-on greens allowed for good scoring,” he said.
Smutz led AHS with an 85, while Iossi carded an 86. Hamre and Rosenthal added identical 87s, while Thompson shot an 88.
Two days earlier, on April 26, the Eagles' JV golfers competed at Platteview Country Club. Meehan shot a 113, Misfeldt a 118, Strom a 131 and Eppenbaugh a 136.
