CEDAR RAPIDS– Iowa City West High’s golfers haven’t been in their classrooms yet this school year, but already have one meet in the books after competing in the Mississippi Valley Conference (MVC) Supermeet Thursday, Aug. 10, at the Ellis Golf Course in Cedar Rapids.
Linn-Mar won the meet, which featured a 30-minute weather delay due to lighting to the north and the south. The Lions finished the day with a team score of 301. Cedar Falls’ Ben Bermel, a junior, was the medalist with a 1-under par score of 71 for the day.
The West High Trojans were 10th with a team score of 355 and were led by Kyle Spence, a junior, who shot a 79.
