After two of eight events in the Missouri Golf Association's Hieronymous Junior Series, Marshall's Bryan Mach sits in fifth place in the boys' 15- to 18-year-old standings.

Mach shot a four-over-par 74 for second place in the season-opening meet at the Sedalia Country Club on June 4, tallying 25 points. He did not compete two days later in the second stage at Redfield Golf Course in Eugene.

Meanwhile, Owls teammate Cole Perkins placed seventh in the 14-15 age group at Sedalia with a 93, but only the top six in the standings score points.

A player must participate in at least three preliminary meets to qualify for the series championship at Fulton on Aug. 1. The next event will be June 26 at Kirksville Country Club.

Mach and Perkins were both members of Marshall's Class 3, District 7 Tournament champions during the spring season. Mach qualified for the MSHSAA Championships as a sophomore in 2011, while Perkins made the state field as a freshman this year.

Three Marshall women compete in MWGA Seniors

JOPLIN -- Marshall was represented by three entries in the Missouri Women's Golf Association Senior Championships, held May 21-22 at Twin Hills Golf and Country Club in Joplin.

Peg Eddy put up a 36-hole score of 190 to tie for 11th place in Open Flight 2, following a first-round 97 with a 93 on the second day.

Cindy Schroeder was first in Open Flight 3 with a 175 -- winning the Thomas Landreth Award for having the lowest net score over the two-day meet with a handicap-adjusted 131. Olive Malter was ninth in Flight 3 with a 197.

Springfield's Stephany Powell had a two-round total of 152 to take the Championship Flight by two strokes over Hariette Meyers of New Madrid.

Plans being made for Rea Memorial Tournament

Employees of Fitzgibbon Hospital in Marshall are preparing for the 22nd annual Pete H. Rea Memorial Golf Tournament on July 14 at Indian Foothills Golf Course.

The entry fee is $240 for each three-man team in the scramble event, with a deadline of July 2 or until the field of 72 teams is filled. Proceeds from the tournament will go toward the purchase of computerized intravenous infusion pumps for patient care, tools which help minimize medication errors.

"'Smart Pumps' have improved the safety of IV medication administration in hospitals all around the nation," said Fitzgibbon President and CEO Ron Ott. "They help caregivers stop and correct potentially serious infusion mistakes before they can happen."
