The Monett Cubs golf team won the four-team scramble at Windmill Ridge Tuesday evening.

Monett's Jacob Fair and Travis Thompson tied for individual honors, each recording 35 for even par.

As a team, the Cubs finished with a 158. Carl Junction and Cassville each finished with 170, and Seneca was fourth with a 191.

For Monett, Garrett Craig finished with a 43. Bryan Beckwith checked in with a 45, and Will Snider tallied 46.

"It was nice to play our home course," said Monett coach Derrek Uhl. "We have some very good competition for our last three varsity spots, which will only help us when we get to our conference and district tournaments."

Bird Dog Invitational

The Cubs finished sixth in the 13-team Bird Dog Invitational at Briarbrook Golf Course in Joplin on Monday.

The Cubs shot a 341. Joplin finished first, recording a 312 on the par-72 course. Carl Junction was second with a 325, and Webb City finished third with a 333.

"Our kids were a little more familiar with this course," said Uhl. "We played much better this time around."

Monett's Fair was fifth overall, recording a 76. Joplin's Griffen Locke and Carthage's Austin Bunnel shared tournament medalist honors, each recording a one-over-par 73.

Thompson shot a 78 for the Cubs. Snider finished with a 92, Craig tallied a 95, and Beckwith recorded a 108 for Monett.

Reeds Spring

The Monett golf team finished 10th in the 20-team Reeds Spring tournament on Friday.

Mt. Vernon, Logan-Rogersville and Springfield Catholic earned the top three spots.

"As a team, we shot a 360," said Uhl. "We now know where we are as a team. If we want to be competitive as a team, we need to improve. I expect with the competition we have with five or six kids we will improve dramatically by the end of the season."

Fair shot a 77 and finished third. Thompson recorded an 86. Craig recorded a 95, and Beckwith tallied 102.

The Cubs will be back on the links Thursday at Cassville. Flights tee off at 9 a.m.
