The Blue Earth Area Buccaneer boys golf team ended up taking 10 place out of 13 teams, at the inaugural Big South Conference Golf Tournament held last Monday in Fairmont’s Interlaken Golf Course.

The Bucs put together a team total of 376.

One BEA golfer came in with a score that earned him BSC All-Conference honors.

Connor Thielfoldt carded an 81 on the 18-hole course, which tied him for third place and gave him the All-BSC honors.

Zach Curtis came in with a 91 for the Bucs next score.

“Zach fought the conditions and some wayward drives,” Buc head coach Travis Armstrong says. “The 91 is higher than his recent scores, so hopefully it doesn’t happen again in the post season.”

Gaven Bruellman had a great second nine holes, shooting a 45, that enabled him to finish with a 98.

The Bucs’ fourth score for team total came from Jared Mensing who carded a 106.

Also playing for the Bucs were Hunter Spencer who came in with a 107 and Tanner Wickersham who carded a 111.

Worthington beat New Ulm for the team championship by a score of 226-333.

Medalist honors at the conference meet went to Ethan Krause from New Ulm who came in with a 72.

The Buccaneers now get ready for the Section 2A, South Sub-Section Meet which starts at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, May 26 at North Links in Mankato.
