Van Buren Has 2 Golfers Advance To District

The Van Buren varsity boys golf team was at the Williamsburg Class 2A sectional competition Friday. Jonah Heckenberg and Tommy Laughlin qualified for the district this Friday near Wapello after shooting 87 apiece. Austin Giberson just missed joining them with an 89. The 92 from Luke Baker rounded out their total of 355. Alternated included Clayton Bruckman a 94 and Jacob Plecker shot 98.

Williamsburg and Central Lee each scored 341 with the host school taking first on a tiebreaker. Since Williamsburg finished in the top 2, that allowed 3rd place Mid-Prairie to make the district tournament with a 347.
