Golfers move into second in conference

By Michael Jacobson

The Bulldogs girls' golf team moved into second place in the overall conference standings last week by placing second in two WCC North golf meets, including their home meet on Friday.

Amber Jensen Seniors Heather Fuchs and Amanda Glenz each earned medalist honors last week. Fuchs was the low scorer at the home meet at Koronis Hills on Friday, shooting 43, and Glenz tied for medalist honors at Long Prairie on Tuesday, May 4, also shooting 43.

Fuchs led the Dogs on Friday, recording six pars in her round on the front nine at Koronis Hills and carding a 43. She was the low scorer by four strokes.

Sophomore Amber Jensen was the third golfer for the Bulldogs at both meets last week. She placed ninth overall at home on Friday.

Fuchs earned medalist honors at a conference meet for the second time this spring.

The Bulldogs finished six strokes behind conference-leading Albany at this meet. Albany had five players crack 50, using a 47 and three 48s for their team score.

Glenz shot 48 on Friday, finishing in a six-way tie for fourth place individually. Sophomore Amber Jensen (52) and ninth grader Marissa Mackedanz (54) completed the Dogs' team score of 197.

At Long Prairie, Glenz tied for first with Lindsey Wellenstein of Albany at 43. Glenz earned medalist honors for the second time this spring, but it was the first time she was medalist at a conference meet.

"Amanda had a good round at Long Prairie. She is making a good charge at making All Conference," said coach Todd Knudsvig.

Fuchs tied for sixth at 50, and Jensen tied for ninth at 51. Senior Jena Spaulding completed the Dogs' team score with a round of 55.

With their two second-place finishes, the Dogs moved into second place in the overall conference standings. Albany, which has won all four conference meets so far, is first with 24 points. The Dogs, with two seconds after starting the conference schedule with a third and a fourth, are second with 17 points, one point ahead of St. Cloud Cathedral (16) and two points ahead of Sauk Centre (15).

This week, the Dogs played in a nonconference tournament at Sauk on Tuesday. They will play in another nonconference meet at Litchfield on Friday. Next week, the Dogs will continue their conference schedule with a meet at Melrose on Monday, May 17.
