Playoff win for Stueck earns individual honor
Tyler Stueck, while qualifying for districts with the entire team, also earned a spot in the individual district competition.

Tyler was in a playoff with Nick Steger of Independence. They both tied for third and at sectionals there are playoffs for the top 4 spots if needed. The first playoff hole was number one. Tyler hit his drive in the fairway but went right on his approach and went under an evergreen. Tyler put that on the green from an awkward stance. The two tied the hole and went to number 16. Tyler had a great drive in the middle of the fairway wile Nick'5 drive was right. Tyler's approach was pin high on the right fringe. Nick was deep and left. Tyler putted close and made his par putt for the win. Both Tyler and Nick qualifyed for districts as individuals. Tyler was already in obviously because of the team, but they recognize the top 4 places.
