Springtime weather finally returned long enough for the Glenwood City golf team to play in its first two meets of the season.
The Toppers’ patience and the extra practice time paid dividends as they finished second in last Tuesday’s season and Dunn-St. Croix opener held on Durand’s Rolling Greens Golf Course.
Glenwood City tallied a score of 186 in the 9-hole, April 23 meet, 15 strokes more than host Durand’s winning total of 171.
The following day, Glenwood City joined 15 other schools from the Dunn-St. Croix, Middle Border and Lakeland conferences for the annual Whitetail Classic near Colfax.
The Toppers’ team shot a 403 to finish seventh in the 18-hole tournament.
Glenwood City returned to Whitetail this past Monday, April 29 for another 6-team Dunn-St. Croix conference meet. The Toppers also have conference meets in Spring Valley this Thursday, May 2 and at the Valley Golf Course in Mondovi next Monday, May 6.
Four of Glenwood City’s varsity golfers enjoyed sub-50 scores in the first meet of the season in Durand last Tuesday, April 23.
Ethan Hanson carded the team’s low score after shooting a 45 on the Rolling Greens’ course to finish in a tie for fifth in the individual standings. He was followed closely by teammates Will Owen with a 46, Gavin Samp at 47 and Dillon Hierlmeier’s tally of 48. Owen Swenby rounded out the varsity scores with a 77.
The combined scores placed the Hilltoppers in second place behind host Durand, who had 171. Spring Valley (187) finished in third just a stroke behind Glenwood City while Elk Mound was fourth with a 204 followed by Mondovi at 253 in fifth and Colfax was last with a 277.
Durand had the top three individual scorers including medalist TJ Tulip, who shot a 41. Panther teammates Julia Hayden and Charlie Brenner both carded 42s.
Just a day after opening the season in Durand, the Hilltoppers were in Colfax to compete in the 16-team, 18-hole Whitetail Classic.
Glenwood City came in seventh in the April 24 tournament after accumulating 403 to finish one point and one spot ahead of Webster. Osceola won the meet with 350 strokes while Durand was just a shot back in second place.
Will Owen was the lone Toppers’ competitor to shoot in the double digits. Owen finished the tournament with a 91 after carding a 46 on the front nine and hitting a 45 on the back nine. Ethan Hanson had a 101 (47-54), Dillon Hierlmeier tallied a 103 (50-53), Gavin Samp shot a 108 (51-57) and Alexa Holden netted a 112 on a pair of 56s on the front and back nines.
