Fairbury Places Third At Thayer Central

Although they didn’t shoot as well as a team, Fairbury Jeffs golf coach Jed Martin saw some good things from last Wednesday’s Thayer Central Invitational.
“We had some positive things coming out of the invite. Justin Peterson played a nice round and shot 80 to finish fourth individually. Justin really is coming along and playing good golf right now, and that is something good to see,” said Martin.
“Spencer Feldkamp finished 14th overall, which is nice for a senior to go out with a medal in his last invite. Those two guys kind of stood out on how they approached the invite. To come away with a medal in any invite is a good thing,” commented Martin.
“Nick Christiansen who didn’t play very well was sick and was battling some illness. Hopefully we will get him healthy and he will be okay,” stated Martin.
In the 15-team invite, Fairbury finished third with a 349 team score.

The defendants told donors their money would help cancer patients, including children and women suffering from breast cancer, but the overwhelming majority of donations benefitted only the perpetrators, their families and friends, and fundraisers.
