NEWTON – The East Buchanan boys’ golf team made its appearance on Thursday in Newton at the state tournament. With 62 golfers and nine teams competing, conditions were ideal for Day 1 of the two-day 36-hole tournament. Westwood Golf Course is a very difficult course, with every approach shot taken on a hill of some sort, shooting into elevated greens or greens on the bottom of a hill. The scored reflected the difficulty and, at the end of Day 1, the East Buchanan team was in fifth place.

The Buccaneers came back on Day 2 in windy, wintery conditions with temperatures in the low 40s, but the boys rebounded nicely to take home the third-place trophy, and senior Trey Johnson would finish in fifth place individually, shooting a 77, 84 (161).
