Burlington boys golf team wears Southeast Conference crown

Burlington High School's Mateo Rascon chips onto the sixth green Wednesday at Fairfield Golf and Country Club during the Southeast Conference Boys Golf Tournament.

FAIRFIELD — One last hoorah.

That’s what the Burlington High School boys golf team got Wednesday.

Burlington, which finished fourth in the Class 4A state tournament last October in Cedar Falls, was allowed to play in one spring tournament.

The Grayhounds made the most of their opportunity, winning the Southeast Conference Tournament at Fairfield Golf and Country Club.

Burlington not only won the team title, it did so convincingly. Despite having not played competitively in seven months, the Grayhounds carded a 307 total, beating runner-up Fairfield by 19 strokes.

The Grayhounds also collected four of the six all-conference honors — Tomas Rascon was second with a 74, Nate Spear was third with a 75, Tyce Bertlshofer was fifth with a 78 and Mateo Rascon was sixth with an 80.

Also for the Grayhounds, Brock Dengler shot an 82 and Dayton Walsh shot an 88.

Burlington made the most of its last hoorah.

“I played pretty good. I had a lot of good shots today,” Tomas Rascon said. “I’m so glad we got to play today.”

“The other teams definitely have a little bit of an advantage, but we still should have played better,” Mateo Rascon said. “It was nice today. I’m glad we got a chance to play.”

“We have been waiting for this ever since state last fall,” Spear said. “It was fun to get in one more tournament together as a team.”
