Colton Slinger shoots 18-hole best at golf triangular
Press Staff Report
CHARLES CITY — There are two-sport, three-sport and event four-sport athletes.
But Charles City senior Colton Slinger has the distinction of being a two-sport-in-one-season athlete.
In addition to going out for track this season as he recently helped the Comets win the 4-by-400 relay race at the Northeast Iowa Conference meet with a Top 10 school-best time of 3 minutes, 33.13 seconds, Slinger is also a returning all-conference golfer.
On Monday with the Comets hosting a triangular against Waukon and Waverly-Shell Rock, Slinger shot a career-best 18-hole score of 80, tying Hogan Hansen of Waverly-Shell Rock for meet honors.
With freshman Trevor White shooting an 87, senior Jackson Molstead shooting a 91, and sophomore Atticus Parrott carding a 92, the Comets shot 350 as a team — the same score that was good enough by 1 stroke to win the school’s third-straight Hampton-Dumont Invitational on Saturday.
This day, however, it was 9 strokes shy of the W-SR Go-Hawks, who also got an 82 score from Bryson Hervol.
Waukon was third with a 366 team score.
Among the junior varsity golfers who played 18 holes, Charles City’s Skylar Houdek led the way with an 88.
