BECKER -- Trisha Kienitz, a senior at MACCRAY, took eighth place at the state Class A girls golf meet at Pebble Creek Thursday.

Kienitz was fifth after her first-day 85 and shot a 91 Thursday to finish with a 176. She was 17 shots behind Kelsey Ross of Osakis, who won the individual title with a 159. Last year, Kienitz took 17th.


Amy Knutson, a junior at Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa, tied for 10th after carding a second-round 77 and finished with a 180. Peyton Miller, a seventh-grader from BBE, tied for 27th with a 191. Carly Schmalz, a freshman from Buffalo Lake-Hector, tied for 39th with a 197. Baillee Hauser, a freshman from MACCRAY, tied for 64th with a 214.

Providence Academy won the team title with a 704.

Hauser ties for 10th in Class A

Weather played havoc with the afternoon second round in the boys tournament Thursday at Pebble Beach. Eventually, the round was called off and Wednesday's first-round results became official.

Ortonville won the team title, 10 shots ahead of Southwest Minnesota Chrisitan.

Zach Hauser, a junior from MACCRAY tied for 10th place, shooting a 78 and was seven shots off the lead, held by Beau Hanson, a sophomore from Frazee. He tied for 10th last year.

Corey Tonn, a senior from BBE, carded an 86 and tied for 47th.

Magnuson ties for third in Class AA

Darkening skies and the threat of more violent weather forced the cancellation of the second round of the state Class AA boys golf meet at Jordan Thursday.

It means only the first round scores count. Orono, which posted a 292 Wednesday, won the team title.

Litchfield's Luke Magnuson finished tied for third overall. The senior shot a 71 on Wednesday, two strokes behind Jake Erickson, a senior from Holy Angels, who won the individual title.

Yellow Medicine East junior Taylor Olson tied for 11th with a 74, senior Tyler Jensvold of YME tied for 27th with a 77 and Barett Freeland, a senior from New London-Spicer, shot an 80 and tied for 47th place.
