No. 1AA DL boys win to cap regular season

The Detroit Lakes boys golf team battled opposing weather conditions but came out winners of the two-day North-South Invitational at Headwaters in Park Rapids Friday and Town & Country in Bemidji Saturday, May 19.

“The kids battled, grinded a nice win,” said DL head coach Bob Gorden. “Great tournament for Lukas and Hunter.”

Lukas Justesen and Hunter Burnside led the Lakers finishing second and third, respectively. Justensen lost a two-hole playoff to Ian Simonich of Moorhead for medalist honors after both golfers finished the tournament tied at 149 strokes.

Burnside was three strokes off the pace finishing in a tie with Fargo Davies’ Jack Olson  at 152.

Jack Schramel (160) and Daniel Rosza (164) completed the scoring foursome for the No. 1AA Lakers.

DL returns to Headwaters for the beginning of the postseason Wednesday, May 29 for the Section 8AA South Subsection championship. The top three teams advance to the section meet. Last year, the Lakers defeated Fergus Falls by 12 strokes.
