CENTERVILLE — PLEASANTVILLE — Once-beaten Centerville remained that way on Monday, bouncing back from a second-place finish at the Albia Invitational to pick up a well-earned triangular win over Chariton and Pleasantville in boys golf action. The Big Reds fired a team round of 155, beating out South Central Conference rival Chariton by 13 shots.

State championship contender Alex Moorman picked up another medalist honor this spring, beating out Centerville teammate Jake Hargrave by four shots for the top individual score on Monday. Moorman fired an even-par round of 35 at the Pleasantville Golf and Country Club.

“We don’t see that course very often. For several of our guys, it was their first time around,” Centerville head boys golf Mike Carney said. “We played okay. Alex was steady shooting at even par. We just keep plugging away as a team.”

Sophomore T.J. Hockenson led Chariton with a round of 41, one shot better than Charger teammate Daric Laing. Centerville is back in action on Thursday, joining several area teams at the Davis County Invitational, while Chariton returns the links next Monday at the PCM Tournament.
