The Colfax-Elk Mound girls’ golf team capped its regular and conference seasons with a pair of second-place finishes last week.
In the eighth and final CloverCroix Conference 9-hole mini-meet held at Bloomer Memorial Golf Course last Monday, September 19, the C-EM squad just missed capturing its second conference victory of the season when it finished as the runner-up to Osseo-Fairchild. Just a single stroke separated the top two teams with The Thunder posting a 192 and Colfax-Elk Mound a 193.
Three days later, the five schools – Colfax-Elk Mound, Osseo-Fairchild, Bloomer, Stanley-Boyd and Mondovi – that make up the CloverCroix held their 18-hole conference tournament at the Lake Hallie Golf Course. In the Thursday, September 22 competition, Colfax-Elk Mound once again finished in second place behind Osseo-Fairchild. That finish assured C-EM of the runner-up spot in this year’s final conference standings.
Colfax-Elk Mound freshman phenom Belle Kongshaug was also crowned this year’s individual CloverCroix champion and top golfer following the conclusion of Thursday’s conference tournament. Kongshaug, who claimed her eighth consecutive mini-meet victory in Bloomer Monday, took medalist honors at Lake Hallie September 22 as she edged out Osseo-Fairchild senior Trinity Knudtson by a single stroke – 83 to 84. This win gave Kongshaug a clean sweep of all nine CloverCroix meets this season and the top spot on the all-conference first team. Three teammates also joined Kongshaug on the all-conference lists. Juniors Josie Seehaver and Selena Clickner each earned spots on the second team while freshman Gabi Amble qualified as an honorable mention.
Colfax-Elk Mound will compete in the WIAA Division 2 regional that was held today (Wednesday, September 28) at Pheasant Hills Golf Course in Hammond. The first four teams at Pheasant Hills along with the top four individual golfers, who are not members of a qualifying team, will advance to the sectional meet at Hidden Greens North hosted by Northwestern High School next Monday, October 3.

Gabi Amble joined Kongshaug in the top ten as she placed sixth after shooting a 46. Selena Clickner carded a 53, LeeDa Yang finished with a 57 and Josie Seehaver rounded out Colfax-Elk Mound’s varsity scoring with a 59.
