Girls Golf: Winning streak reaches 24 meets

Although it took a while to get back on the course for the Detroit Lakes girls’ golf team, the same result happened.

For the 23rd and 24th consecutive time, the Lakers won a pair of meets, starting with the Minnewaska Invite last Friday after shooting a 332, with Alexandria a distant second with a 351.

Co-state champion senior Natalie Roth won top honors after shooting a five-over par 77, which was tied with Minnewaska’s Jena Janu.

Considering the gusty conditions, shooting under 80 was more than a solid score, with Roth’s teammate and fellow co-state champion sophomore Kate Smith shooting an 80.

Other Laker scores included Emma Thompson’s 86, Matty Tschider’s 89, Sydney Busker’s 93 and Trisa Hutchinson’s 94.

The Lakers will be busy making up meets lost due to weather, and will be in the Jordan Invite at Ridges at Sand Creek Golf Course Friday and Saturday. The course is the site of the Class 2A state meet in June.

Lakers win No. 24 in a row

An even two dozen consecutive meet wins were marked up by the Lakers with their 314 at Crosby-Ironton Tuesday.

Playing without one of their top golfers in Smith, who was out with an illness, the Lakers still won by 18 strokes over Pequot Lakes, which finished with a 332.

It was a rarity, though, to not see a DL player as medalist, as Staples-Motley’s Emily Isrealson took the top spot with an even par 72.

Matty Tschider was third overall for DL with a 77, while Roth and Thompson each carded a 78.

Hutchinson came in with an 81, Busker an 84 and Abby Schramel made her varsity debut with a 91.
