Bearson, Stensgard at State


Fri, Jun 21st, 2013
Posted in All Sports

By Paul Trende

As it is typically the case, the high school sports season ended on the finely trimmed grass of a golf course. Lanesboro senior Johanna Bearson and Rushford-Peterson junior Hudson Stensgard were the last two Fillmore County prep athletes to compete during the school year 2012-2013. Each took part in their respective Class A state golf events at Pebble Creek Golf Course in Becker. For Bearson, it was her fourth state golf meet.

As an 8th grader, she competed as part of Lanesboro’s 3rd place state team. Bearson finished 51st individually. As a freshman and junior, she qualified individually; finishing tied for 34th and tied for 20th respectively. Culminating her senior year nicely, Bearson had her best-ever state finish. Her two-day total of 180 (43/46; 49/42) was good enough for sole possession of 12th place (of 88 total participants). She was tied for 10th after nine and tied for 11th after 18 holes. A second day first round 49 dropped her down the leaderboard (tied for 17th). But Johanna rallied on her second nine holes, posting her best score of the 2013 state tournament, a 42. It moved her back up to her final finishing spot, 12th. Bearson completes her excellent chapter of the Lanesboro golf saga, following (most recently) in the footsteps of Paige Hungerholt (who also had multiple state appearances).

Coach John Smith; “Johanna had a great state tournament finishing off a great career on the Lanesboro golf team. She had some great shots during the two day tournament as she went head to head against some of the best golfers in the state.” The Class A girls champion was Hannah Kruger from Russell-Tyler-Ruthton High School. She posted a two-day total of 163. A pair of Bearson’s Section 1A adversaries, Lewiston-Altura’s Elizabeth Hennessy and Wabasha-Kellogg’s Courtney Sill finished 3rd (171) and 11th (178) respectively. Legacy Christian Academy (752) was the girl’s team state champion. They were better than nearest competitors Badger-Greenbush-Middle River (771) and Section 1A champion Wabasha-Kellogg (783).

On the boys side, R-P’s Hudson Stensgard competed in his first state golf meet. The junior was also an individual qualifier but didn’t make as much noise as Bearson. Stensgard was generally consistent though, putting together scores of 42, 45, 43, and 47 for a two-day total of 177. It put Hudson in three-way tie for 52nd place. Eighty-eight total golfers .....
