South Tama freshman Colson Frakes won Monday’s meet in La Porte City with a score of 41.

STC sophomore Ian Slagle and junior Taylen Anderson scored the next best rounds Monday. They shot rounds of 48 and 50 to help the Trojans win the meet.

"I was very proud of my boys," coach Nate Doran said. "They performed well and came to play. The score of 180 is the best score the varsity has produced in my two years as head coach. This is a sign of improvement and the start of things heading in the right direction. We are still a very young team which I see as a good thing."

Last week, the Trojans played in Eldora as South Hardin hosted a meet. Smith finished runner-u at the meet with a nine-hole round of 40.

South Tama will be playing at home Friday against Vinton-Shellsburg. The match begins at 4 p.m.
