The Mooreland Bearcat golf team competed in a regional qualifier on Monday at Boiling Springs Golf Course with hopes of finishing in the top six spots. But that hope was bogeyed as the Mooreland squad did not qualify for the regional tournament and saw its season end.

“We shot better on the back nine than what we did on the front nine,” said coach Kurt Myers.

Only the top six teams and the top six individuals advanced into the regional play. Mooreland did not have any individuals make the cut.

“There is a lot of quality boys golf teams out there this year,” said Myers.

Myers said there were 20-plus teams competing in the event all vying for a spot at the regional in Enid.

Fairview putted its way to the top of the leader board with team score of 315, followed by Burns Flat-Dill City with a 336.

Watonga placed third with a 342 and Pioneer shot a 349 for fourth. Round out the top six teams was Shattuck in fifth with a team score of 350 and Cherokee with a 352.

The lowest round of the day came from Fairview’s Logan Herbert who shot a 70.

Myers said the Mooreland golf team is still very young and inexperienced.

“I am losing only one senior from the team this year,” he said.

Myers added that a couple of his golfers were first-year players.

“We never compete against the other schools, we compete against each other. We are just trying to improve day by day,” Myers said.

The coach said his team has improved a lot since the start of the season.

“We started the year out slow, but we worked hard on our game and we have seen the improvements,” Myers said. “We have come a long way.”
