Garrett Johnson was magnificent for Gilbert in wining medalist honors with a 33-36–69, with Perry’s Noah Wilkening only a stroke behind with a two-under par 36-34–70. Gilbert’s Tommy Doyle placed third overall with a 37-36–73, with Norwalk’s Tyaler Luandstrom (38-36–74) and ADM’s Micah Moyer (37-41–78) rounding out the five individual medal winners.

Both W-G teams will play at Sugar Creek in Waukee Tuesday, which is serving as host for the Earlham Invite.
