Junior Jayden Scharper posted the best round of the day for the Green Devils. His 86 tied him for eighth place overall out of 46 individual players. Sophomore Leo Klapperich finished tied for 10th place with a score of 88.
The medalist of the meet was Ashton Martens from Grundy Center (73).
Osage is back in action on Thursday at Northwood.
Garner-Hayfield-Ventura drops two at tournament
The Garner-Hayfield-Ventura (GHV) boys soccer team traveled to Spirit Lake on Saturday for a tournament against tough competition. The Cardinals lost a 5-1 contest to Sergeant Bluff-Luton (SBL) and a 5-2 game to Spirit Lake.
The Cardinals gave up five goals to five different players against SBL, while the only goal for GHV was scored by senior Ryan Hackenmiller in the second period.
Against Spirit Lake, the Cardinals scored one goal in the first period and another in the second. However, the Indians – powered by three goals from senior Sam Mayer – were just too much to handle.
The Cardinals fell to 2-3 and will play at Hampton-Dumont-CAL on Thursday.
