Sub-Sections up next for DL team

After a full 2010 season of high-level competition -- both against opposing teams and in-team competition -- the Detroit Lakes boys' golf team has finalized its Section 8-2A roster.

The final meet of the season saw a host of Lakers shooting in the 70's during the DL Invite at the Detroit Country Club Tuesday, as the first Laker team won with a score of 305.

But the medalist of the meet came from the DL second team in senior Ross Mickelson, who carded a three-over par 74.

Mickelson became the eighth Laker to medal at the meet, thus showing the heavy depth DL will bring into the Sub-Section meet Thursday at Wildflower Golf Course, starting at 10 a.m.

"Tuesday was a good tournament, it showed how good our depth is," said DL head coach Bob Gorden.

The Lakers had three golfers shooting five-over par 76, including senior Nate Ginnaty along with sophomores Karter Smith and Austin Rusness.

DL's first team's fourth score was a 77, carded by both junior Tanner Lane and eighth grader Michael Herzog.

"I was very happy with the end results," Gorden said. "There was a lot of competition on the team and that helped out."

Rick Hutchinson also shot a 78 for DL's second team, while Sam Goral and Tanner Schnathorst were low men on the third team with an 87.

The six DL golfers who will represent the Lakers Section 8-2A team will be Ginnaty, Lane, junior Connor Hedstrom, Smith, Rusness and Herzog.

"I just want the six guys to go out and have fun and just play solid," Gorden added. "They all know Wildflower pretty well."

The top three teams will advance to the Section 8-2A meet at Longbow Golf Course in Walker Tuesday.

The seven teams in the Sub-Section at Wildflower include DL, Hawley, Perham, Wadena-Deer Creek, Breckenridge, Pelican Rapids and Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton.
