Blair Oaks Golf wins district title in Eagle Knoll

HARTSBURG — The Blair Oaks Falcons clinched their second district championship in three seasons, topping the team leaderboard in Monday’s Class 3 District 2 tournament at Eagle Knoll Golf Course.

Blair Oaks had four golfers finish in the top 20 individually, paving the way to a team score of 319. Hallsville finished second in the district with a 325, and Father Tolton – the defending champion – placed third with a 327.

The top two teams in each district will automatically qualify their top four golfers from the district tournament for the Class 3 State Championships taking place next Monday and Tuesday at the Meadow Lake Acres Country Club in New Bloomfield.

Sam Kliethermes led the Falcons with a 4-over-76 and tied for third place out of 73 district golfers with St. Charles West’s Ian Hollander.

Dylan Bryan shot a 6-over-78 to finish seventh in a three-way tie, while Ryan Glavin finished 10th with an 8-over-80 to earn all district honors.

Chase Distler will be the Falcons’ fourth state qualifier, sharing 19th place, 13-85.

Blair Oaks’ Michael Atnip tied for 25th with an 88, four shots short of the state tournament cut line.

Blair Oaks and Hallsville will be two of the eight teams — along with Bishop LeBlond, Barstow, Eldon, Lockwood, Logan-Rogersville and McAuley Catholic — battling for a state title next week.

The Falcons will be aiming for their third straight state cup. Blair Oaks finished fourth in Class 3 last season and finished third in 2021.

The Southern Boone Eagles finished fifth on their home court with a 338 and qualified three people to the state tournament.

Levi Baumgartner, Trenton Hargis and Noah Wilde landed right on the cut line and each shot a 12-over-84 for the Eagles.

Blake Nichols rounded out Southern Boone’s team score with 86 and Will Hilgedick with 91.

The Fatima Comets finished 11th in the team standings with 394.
