Both the Bluejay and Jayette golfers were host squads Monday as they welcomed Gilbert, North Polk and West Central Valley to the Perry Golf and Country Club for the annual Witmer-Dunphy Coed.

Named in honor of Perry prep golf icons Larry Dunphy and the late Dean Witmer, the event awards medals to the two lowest individual rounds for both the boys and girls, as well as recognizing the team victors, with the school posting the lowest combined team total honored as overall champion.

Gilbert won the girls side with 185 strokes, with North Polk second at 238 while WCV (242) and Perry (252) followed. A 175 from Gilbert claimed the boys side, with North Polk carding a 179 and Perry a 264. The WCV boys had only three golfers in action and were unable to generate a team score. The combined coed score of 360 for Gilbert was the overall low team score.

The Perry girls were led by senior Delaney Eiteman, who shot a 54. Macy Kilmer posted a 65, MaryLou Ledesma a 66 and Bryce Eastman a 67 to account for the Jayette scoring. Jayna Kenney (68) and Ainsley Marburger (69) also competed for the hosts.

Eden Bruner (42) and Monique Nespar (46) were medalist and runner-up medalist for Gilbert, with Sarah Howell (47) and Hallie Nissen (50) also scoring. Ali Austin (54) and Morgan Gustafson (58) made the rounds for the Tigers as well.

North Polk was led by Aly Cromley (55), with Katie Scott (59), Elly Parker (61) and Heidi Schoenberg (63) rounding out the four lowest Comet scores. Playing for North Polk but not scoring were Ellie Mumma (63) and Victoria Nerem (64).

WCV had four girls in action, with Hunter Godwin (56), Haleigh Rummel (59), Josie Bittney (62) and Darby Davis (65) providing the Wildcat total.

Perry’s boys received a team-low 59 from Zach Darr while Dalton Scott carded a 63. Isaac Noble produced a 67 and Sebastian Hernandez a 75, with an 85 from Brady Herman not used for the Bluejay total.

Gilbert’s total came from cards of 42 from Spencer Clatt (runner-up medalist), of 43 from both Bryce Malchow and Sawyer Hansen and of 47 from James Pollard. Ben Simondynes (48) and Isaac Gustafson (50) also played for the victors.

Medalist Andrew Vincent’s 41 paced North Polk. Drake Johnson shot a 43, Brendan Bayeur a 46 and Jack Peterson a 49 for the Comets, who also had Clayton Hagberg (54) and Dennis Sean Elwell (55) in action.

Playing for WCV were Grant Caltrider (42), Cole Arnburg (46) and Carson Wadle (60).

The Bluejays are off until visiting Ogden April 30 while the Jayettes will play 18 holes Thursday at the Woodward-Granger girls invite, which will begin at 1 p.m.
