Three MHS golfers punched their tickets to State during the region golf meet on Monday, September 24, at the Olive Grove Golf Course in Groton. Eli Fischer, Conner VanVooren, and Jake Trevett move on to compete for Milbank at the 2018 South Dakota State Golf Meet in Dell Rapids on October 1.
In Groton, the Bulldogs took fifth place in the region. Individually, Fischer golfed an 86 (9th), VanVooren an 88 (12th), and Trevett a 93 (21st). According to MHS Coach Mark Keeton, “Eli Fischer continued his hot play finishing in ninth with one penalty stroke on the day. Conner VanVooren will be making his second straight trip to the state tournament and Jake Trevett will be enjoying his first.”
Keeton continued by saying, “The boys had to battle through cold and rainy conditions. Most were soaked to the bone by the time they finished their first nine. Then on the back, they had to do their best to stay warm when the rains finally let up. As a team, we missed our season low by only five strokes at 369, playing in the season’s worst weather.”
