REMSEN -- The early season woes continued for the Gehlen Catholic boys golf team on Thursday, April 6, as Remsen St. Mary's cruised to a 182-226 win on their home course.

"We had a pretty nice night for golf, but none of the boys' scores improved," Gehlen Head Coach Kent Zevenbergen said. "Our goal was for everybody to shoot better than Tuesday, even if it was only a stroke. Remsen has an easier course than our home course so I was expecting lower scores, but we had lots of boys putt three or even four times per hole which really hurt their final totals."

Derrick Schorg followed up his medalist performance from Monday against Hinton with another medalist placing against the Jays. Schorg shot a 42 which was two strokes worse than Monday, but still two strokes better than teammate Noah Brazil who earned runner-up honors.

Spencer Schorg and Carter Kuchel rounded out the counting scores for the Hawks with a 48 and 50, respectively.

Dustin Schmit was the top finisher for Gehlen with a 54 while Jared Stoll was a pair of swings behind him. Daniel Kessenich and Deven Paulsen closed out the counting scores for the Jays with 58's.

"We need to keep working on our ball contact," Zevenbergen added. "We had lots of balls end up way off the fairway and it is hard to reach greens from in the trees, but it is hard to score well when you putt 3-4 times every hole."

Remsen St. Mary's (1-1 WEC) is on the road at Unity Christian on Monday, April 10.
