Prep Golf Round-up: Late-season run leads Osseo-Fairchild to sectionals

Osseo-Fairchild's prep golf team steadily improved throughout the season. The evidence was clear during the WIAA Division 3 Cadott Regional Meet held back on May 24 at Whispering Pines Golf Course.

The Thunder placed second behind the host Hornets with an 18-hole score of 373 (Cadott shot a 364) led by individual regional champion Ian Vold. The OFHS senior shot an 86 and was able to win a tie-breaker over Cadott's Jacob Ackley.

Other Thunder individual scores were as follows: Senior Carter Vold 93, senior Spencer Anderson 95, sophomore Aidan Anderson 99 and sophomore Hayden Smith 104.

The top four teams qualified for the Chetek-Weyerhaeuser Sectional Meet held at Turtleback in Rice Lake on May 31. These were Cadott, Osseo-Fairchild, Eleva-Strum 387 and Glenwood City 386. Fall Creek finished 7th overall shooting a 411. Augusta had an incomplete team.

However, FC did qualify two golfers for sectionals in senior Jack Thompson, who shot a 90 and teammate Hayden Vinking who shot a 92. They qualified along with C-W's Bryce Killoren 89 and Conner Hanson, 90.

Other Fall Creek individual scores were senior Bryce Kuula, 95 and sophomore Laith Westphal, 134. For Eleva-Strum, senior Riley Sterry and freshman Dominic Ellis both shot 91s with senior Dominic Marco shooting a 99 and junior Madi Gullicksrud a 106. For Augusta, sophomore Abby Boone shot a 122, sophomore Ali Knuth a 135 and freshman Matt Hoff a 140.

At the sectional meet, O-F was in second place after the front nine holes with a score of 186. The top two teams and top three golfers not on a qualifying team make it to state. However the Thunder couldn't hold on and finished fifth with an 18-hole score of 404. Eleva-Strum took ninth with a score of 414.

Individual O-F scores were Ian Vold 98, Spencer Anderson 99, Carter Vold 102, Aidan Anderson 105 and Hayden Smith 112. For Eleva-Strum, Ellis shot a 92 to finish 10th individually, Sterry a 97, Gullicksrud a 110 and Marco 115.

Thompson's 18-hole score of 89 almost qualified him for state as he missed the cut by two strokes as he tied for fifth. Vining finished with a score of 103.

The top two teams were Ladysmith 362 and Glenwood City 385. Individual qualifiers were Killoren 84, Joe Hueckman of Prentice 87 and Dominic Croci of Hurley, also 87.
