COLFAX — After finishing in sixth place in the Dunn-St. Croix conference last season, Colfax’s boys’ head golf coach Michael Dombrowski will work with this year’s squad to develop their skills.
“We are young and inexperienced, we need to develop our skills,” Dombrowski said.
The Vikings lost last season’s top two golfers – Treyton Teige and Richard Stehling – to graduation.
Juniors Boden Bergeson and Dalton Bradford along with sophomore Hunter Rebak will make their way back to the links for the Vikings in 2019. Rebak is looking to become the Vikings best golfer according to Dombrowski.
In final meet of the 2018 regular season, Bergeson and Rebak finished under 60 strokes for Colfax which was an improvement from two meets prior when they finished over 70.
The Vikings will also welcome freshmen Tristen Lenz and Rylee Setter to the group that also includes seniors Devin Lamm and Tanner Nierenhausen.
The hope is for Colfax to be able to compete in the middle of the conference this season after their inability to win any conference meets a year ago.
The last three meets of the 2018 season – held in Mondovi, Glenwood City and Spring Valley – saw the Vikings finish at the bottom of the pack in sixth place which is where they ended up in the final Dunn-St. Croix team standings.
Dombrowski, who is in his third year as the boys’ golf coach, believes that defending conference champion Spring Valley and runner-up Durand will be the two teams to watch this season as they both have good programs.
The first time the Vikings will be able to tee off will be on Tuesday, April 9 on their home course at Whitetail Golf Course. This will also serve as the Dunn-St. Croix opener and will included the other conference teams from Elk Mound, Durand, Glenwood City, Mondovi and Spring Valley.
