Mackedanz earns medalist honors at Sauk
Senior Mitchell Mackedanz shot an even-par round of 37 at the Sauk Centre Country Club on Tuesday, April 12, earning medalist honors for the second time in as many meets this spring.|
Mackedanz topped Jordan Priem of LPGE by one stroke and Bjorn Hanson of LPGE by two strokes. LPGE won the team event with a four-golfer total of 162. Mackedanz had two birdies, five pars, and two bogeys for his even-par round.
Senior Mitchell Mackedanz was the medalist for the second meet in a row, shooting an even-par round of 37 in a conference meet at Sauk.
The Bulldogs tied with Melrose with 176, but the Dutchmen won the tiebreaker, relegating the Dogs to a sixth-place finish. The tight meet - all six teams were within 14 strokes despite the cool, breezy weather - had the Dogs six strokes from fourth, seven from third, and ten from second.
Eighth grader Zach Fuchs shot 43 for the Dogs, and senior Cody Flanders carded a 46.
But the other four scores for the Dogs were all in the 50s. Melrose won the tiebreaker with a 48 by their fifth golfer.
This week, the Dogs played their second conference meet in St. Cloud on Monday. They will play at Melrose in a nonconference meet, and they will play in a tournament at Minnewaska on Saturday.
Next week, the Dogs will host a conference meet at Koronis Hills on Tuesday, April 26, starting at 4:30 p.m.
