Milbank at the Region 1A Meet in Madison Bulldogs Jonathan DeBoer and Owen Fischer qualified for the 2021 South Dakota State Golf Meet during the Region 1A meet at Madison on September 27. DeBoer tied for third place with an 83. Owen Fischer tied for 22nd place with a 98.

As a team, the Bulldogs took fourth place. They compiled a score of 387.
Coach Keeton said, “I couldn’t be prouder. All year, we talk about improving and playing your best at the region meet, and these boys did not disappoint. The five boys as a group improved 60 strokes since early August, and they improved their team score by 39 strokes.”
Keeton added, “As a team, we missed slipping into the third spot by just six strokes. That would have qualified us (for State) as a team, but I’m very excited for Jonathan and Owen. They both qualified for the state tournament in Madison next Monday and Tuesday. As a coach, I’m also looking forward to seeing what this young group can do in the future.”
