---- — ALBIA — The Fairfield Trojans shot a better round overall on Tuesday. However, it was Centerville’s Alex Moorman who took the medalist honors at the Albia Invitational.

Moorman rebounded from a score of 40 on the first trip around the nine-hole golf course at Albia Golf and Country Club. He would come back to shoot a 32 on the second go-around, finishing at an even par on the day. Fairfield’s Nick Higgins shot the next best score, four strokes behind Moorman.

Overall, Fairfield took the title at the invitational, carding a total of 317. Centerville was 14 strokes back in second place, with a team total of 331 strokes.
