Three Milbank Bulldog Golfers, participated in the State Golf Tournament June 4 through June 5, in Watertown. The high point came on No. 6 when Kylie Kasuske, playing from 115 yards, used her 9-iron and carded her first ever hole-in-one. “The coaches and I were talking, the last hole-in-one that we can remember at a State Tournament was in 2011. They don’t happen often,” said coach Mark Keeton.
Kylie Kasuske, Tori Quade and Justine Wiik battled fast greens and wind gusts of over 30mph on day one, making it a tough day for competition. “I thought the girls fought hard and hung in there as best as they could,” said Keeton.
But as Tuesday’s sun smiled on the Bulldog Golfers as all three had solid shots to start the day. “This is usually a good sign,” stated Keeton, “as the first shot is always the hardest.” And things seem to go up from there.
Kasuske finished 21st overall in the tournament. The top 25 golfers in state medal.
Also, going for personal bests, Tori Quade shot a 99 and Justine Wiik beat her Monday score by 17 strokes. “It was a great day and one I will never forget,” Keeton said.
Kasuske – 99-91-190 – Finished 21st.
Quade – 112-99-211 T57
Wiik – 125-108- T78
