Rams Score Wins At Vandalia


The Ramsey-Nokomis boys golf team picked up another win and the Lady Rams fielded a full team for the first time this year on Thursday, Aug. 27, as the squads hit the links at the Vandalia Country Club.

The Ramsey boys took second in a triangular with the host Vandals and Altamont, shooting a 179 to beat the Indians by eight strokes. Vandalia would take the top spot with a 138, setting a new course record in the process.

The Rams would be led by freshman Gunner Finley, who shot a 6-over 41 on the day. Finley’s round would be eight strokes behind Riley Ruckman, who took medalist honors for Vandalia.

Five of the six players would shoot rounds in the 40s for Ramsey, with just 11 strokes separating Finley and sixth man Ben Hayes (52). Charlie Reiss would add in a 45, while Nokomis senior Dallas Sneddon was a stroke behind his teammate with a 46. 

Hadley Seaton and Wyatt Marley would tie for the fourth scoring round, both shooting 47s on the day.

After having three players in their debut, the Ramsey-Nokomis girls would register a team score in their second match of the season as Brenna Hayes, Brooke Benhoff, Clara Klieboeker and Coree Keagy took to the course on Thursday.

The Lady Rams would shoot a 232, 22 strokes behind Altamont for the top team spot, but made strides. Hayes was medalist for the match with a 45, while Benhoff shot a 54. Klieboeker finished the day with a 62, while Keagy, a freshman at Nokomis, shot a 71 in her season debut.

The Lady Rams, along with their male counterparts, will get another shot at Altamont on Friday, Sept. 4, as they play the Indians at St. Elmo Country Club.
