Home cooking was mighty tasty for the Pratt High School boys golf team as they took first place out of 8 schools at a meet they hosted on Monday at Park Hills.

Home cooking was mighty tasty for the Pratt High School boys golf team as they took first place out of 8 schools at a meet they hosted on Monday at Park Hills.

PHS posted 384 to capture first place, with Cheney 389 and Kingman 399 their closest pursuers.

Golf is a sport where the home field can definitely be a factor, and the Greenbacks took full advantage- many of them posting well below average scores. Being familiar with danger areas on the course and knowing green contours is a plus for a golfer, and it certainly paid off for the Frogs.

"Kael Bridges, David Mathes and Hayden Slief all turned in scores 20-30 strokes better than their averages," PHS head coach Steve Landry said. "That resulted in our lowest team score in the last two years."

"I was really proud of the kids to get this big win," Landry added.

Pratt had three top 10 finishers: Kael Bridges took 2nd 47-43-90; David Mathes was 3rd 44-47-91; and Hayden Slief 6th 50-46-96.

Also with a strong outing was Will Mass, PHS' fourth scorer, who placed 16th 53-54-107. Cody Schelling contributed a 61-67-128 for 31st place.

Unfortunately, the Greenbacks had a bit of a letdown the following day in the league meet held at Kingman as they were only able to manage a 7th place team finish (428 pts.)Larned took the CKL title with 331.

Scores for Pratt included Hayden Slief 50-53-103; Will Mass 51-56-107; Cody Schelling 52-56-108; David Mathes 55-55-110.

Those two back-to-back meets ended the regular season. Next up for the PHS linksters is regional at Hays, which will tee off Monday May 15 at 9 a.m.
