“First of all, what a treat for the boys to get to play at Moccasin Creek,” stated head coach Mark Keeton. “Hands down the best course in northeast South Dakota. As a team we shot our lowest score of the year. Aberdeen just finished the Dakota Open this past weekend, and the greens were very fast.”
