The Quarrier boys golf team has stayed toward the top in conference play of late, most recently taking on competition at Bakker Crossing in Sioux Falls for the Big Sioux Conference event Sept. 17.
Highlighting the meet, Dell Rapids took the first place team spot and placed all five varsity golfers in the top 10 individual scores.
“This was a great way to end the regular season,” coach Mick Hoglund said. “We were happy to win the conference tournament. We are playing well and hope to stay consistent.”
Individually, Zach Schroeder took second place (81), while Adam Karst (2nd, 82), Ted LaCoursiere (6th, 82), Ty Hoglund (7th, 82) and Devon Weber (10th, 83) rounded out the team.
“I was happy for Ted LaCoursiere,” Hoglund said. “This is his senior year, and we were happy to get this team win at the conference meet.”
The JV boys came off with top finisher Jordan Kerns (98), with Josh Parrott, Shane O’Hara, Trevor Hanzlik and Jace Blair also competing in the meet.
Prior to the conference match, the boys traveled to Madison, where the team finished eighth of 15 teams Sept.10. Sioux Falls Christian took top honors, taking down host team Madison by three strokes on what coach Hoglund called a windy day at the Madison Country Club.
“We didn’t play well as a team,” the coach said. “We hope to refocus as a team and play well at the conference meet.”
Ty Hoglund came off best for the Quarriers, scoring 86 and placing 15th, while Adam Karst (90), Ted LaCoursiere (91), Devon Weber (95), Zach Schroeder (96) and Shane O’Hara (118) rounded out the team’s scores.
A Sept. 7 Vermillion invite handed the boys a tied second place spot in the 12-wide field of teams in attendance. Ty Hoglund took the top spot for the Quarriers, finishing in sixth place with an 80.
Also golfing for Dells were Adam Karst (9th, 82), Ted LaCoursiere (15th, 83), Zach Schroeder (84), Devon Weber (90) and Josh Parrott (95).
While Madison took first place, Dells tied with Sioux Falls Christian, dropping the No. 1 spot by nine strokes.
“I think we are progressing nicely,” Hoglund said. “I am very happy with our performances. We are a young team.”
