    Senior Blake Swofford won the season's first golf tournament on Monday, shooting a three-under 69 at Belk Park.
    As a team, the Vandals placed seventh out of 11 teams in the field in East Alton-Wood River.

    Swofford had four birdies during his round, on holes 5, 10, 11 and 13, and he bogeyed hole 6. Otherwise, he was par for the course.

    Sophomore Zach Schaal had the next-best round for Vandalia, shooting an 89.

    Senior Zach Jackson followed with a 94. He birdied hole 10.
