There is an old saying; familiarity breeds contempt. That may not apply to the gentleman's game of golf per se. Nonetheless, Lanesboro and Fillmore Central's boys' golfers got very comfortable with each other. They saw each other on back-to-back nights. First, the two schools drove to Lake City to do battle. In the eight-team tourney also featuring PEM, W-K, R-P, Stewartville, and Houston (and the host squad), the Burros nipped the Falcons for first 335 to 337 at the par-71, 18-hole Lake City Golf Club. PEM finished a distant (347) third. R-P (360) finished 5th. Individually, Cory Strom (L) nipped Peter Rislove (FC) atop the leaderboard (78, 79). Burro's Braden Hanson and Lucas Johnson tied for 4th (82's). FC's Matt Guttormson (85) and Drew Bahl (86) finished 6-7. R-P's Justin Boyum matched Bahl's 86. Twenty-four hours later, the Burros headed highway 52-south to Harmony's par-36 course. Upon heading back to 'the 'Boro', they were again narrowly victorious (163-167). Cory Strom again walked away triumphant, shooting a two-over-par 38. Falcon's Andy Todd and Rislove notched 40's, as did Lanesboro's Johnson. Hanson (L) had a 42, Bahl (FC) a 43. It was the first dual-meet loss for the Falcons. The Burros improved to 2-3, though their losses are by a combined three strokes (and a tie-breaker).
