“Journal 11” golf teams do not host tournaments too often. Rushford-Peterson did so this year with six full boys teams and five full girls teams. Lanesboro’s squads won both events. The boys kept up their strong season by outshooting Chatfield, 360 to 361. R-P (407) and D-E (408) hotly contested third and fourth place. L-A (414) and Houston (445) followed. Two 8th graders topped the leaderboard. Lanesboro’s Jack
Brogle (11-over 83) nipped Chatfield’s Carson Harstad (12-over 84) with Burro senior Hayden Lawstuen (13-over 85) and D-E’s Carter Boynton (14-over 86) taking third and fourth. Harstad posted a triple-bogie while Brogle bogeyed the par-three 14th hole. Each athlete had one birdie, Brogle seven pars, Harstad 10. But the latter had five double-bogeys or worse to Brogle’s two. Lawstuen had eight pars, seven bogeys, and three doubles. Chatfield had six in the top 11. Colton Johnson (92, 6th-tie), Braxton McCaslin (92, 6th-tie), Devin Reinhardt (93, 9th), Gage Bartels (94, 10th), and Brayden Fretland (95, 11th-tie) joined Harstad. Kaden Stettler (95, 11th-tie) and Dayton Haugen (97, 13th-tie) rounded out the Burros’ scoring golfers. Sam LaFleur (97, 13th-tie) was R-P’s top golfer followed by Kellen Drinkall (102, 16th-tie) and Gus Hoiland (102, 16th-tie). Ethan Knutson (103, 18th place) paced Houston. Thirty-six boys competed. On the girls side, Lanesboro (448) topped Chatfield (465), L-A (470), R-P (543), and Houston (549). Gopher sophomore Mya Henry (25-over 97) took first by one stroke over Lanesboro’s Chloe Schnebly (26-over 98). Each had two pars. Henry had nine bogeys, Schnebly 11. Henry had five double bogeys and two triples, but Schnebly two doubles, a triple, and four quadruples. Lanesboro’s Ariana Huntington (4th place, 107), Houston’s Hannah Weichert (5th place, 112), Chatfield’s Grace Copeman (6th place, 117), and Lanesboro’s Taylor Hanson (9th place, 119) finished top 10. Twenty-seven gals competed. The event was held at the par-72 Ferndale Golf Course on a sunny but windy day.
