Starting the day in blustery, cold, dewy, unsummerlike conditions, Ramstein bested league rivals Wiesbaden and Kaiserslautern in both boys and girls golf at the Ramstein course Thursday, September 19. Ramstein remained unbeaten with the victories.
“Honestly, the golfers struggled, I think, because of the cold,” said Ram­stein Coach Nathan Brewster. “It was 38 degrees when we started with quite a bit of dew. After about two hours, it warmed up and the dew went away and people started playing some golf.”
Last week Ben Todman blistered the course and rest of the field. But this time he got stiff competition from Wiesbaden’s Clayton Shenk and teammate Chris Angeles, who shot his best round this year. Todman had 39 points, Shenk was a point behind and Angeles two points back. Royals Matt Miller and Micah Webb were fourth and fifth. Kaiserslautern’s Mathias Perrin placed sixth. Colton Lucas from Ramstein carded his best round of the year. Points are earned for birdies, pars, bogeys and double bogeys, not how far over or under par the golfer finishes.

On the girls side, Ramstein came out on top with Harley Parks the medalist with 28 points.
Both teams were in Wiesbaden this week. Results will be published in the next issue of the Kaiserslautern American.
