SIKESTON -- The Sikeston golfers come on strong against the Malden Green Wave on Thursday, winning 158 to 192 at the Sikeston Country Club.
"I have said this team has potential and today was a step in the right direction," said Sikeston coach Rick Oetting. "Our medalist was Dakota Trevino shooting even par 35. He kept his head in the game all day and never let a missed shot stop him from making a great shot on the next effort."
Bill Green and Jared Kruger turned in 39s while De Bizzell finished with a 45.
"There is still room for improvement but anytime a team can shoot under 160 they have done well," said Oetting. "The next two weeks are crucial to the season. This is the time to show that practice and hard work has been paying off. With a little more team improvement we will be where we need to be for district."
The next outing for the Bulldogs will be hosting a 14-team invitational four ball tournament on Monday.
