Buccaneer golfers take down the Cardinals

By Staff | May 15, 2016

With all six varsity golfers shooting under 50, the Blue Earth Area Buccaneers boys team cruised by the Fairmont Cardinals last Tuesday afternoon in Fairmont.

The Bucs defeated the Cards by a score of 165-186.

Hunter Spencer led the way for the Bucs, shooting an even 40, which gave him medalist honors. Right behind him was Manning Lane with a 41.

Three Buccaneers shot the same 42 score. Gavin Bruellman, Austin Thielfoldt and Braeden Gudahl all tied, with Bruellman and Thielfoldt’s scores counting towards the team total of 165.

The other BEA varsity player, Jared Mensing, carded a 49.

For the Cards, Bryan Grotte shot the lowest score, another 42. Tanner DeWar had a 45, Trevor Iverson a 49 and Colby Grotte a 50 for their 186 team tally.

“The conditions were a little more favorable for our boys today than at the Cardinal Invite,” said Buc head coach Travis Armstrong. “And they played much smarter this time. To have five scores of 42 or better really shows this team’s improvement. We used a score in the 50s almost every meet last year, and today we threw out (did not use) a 42. I was very pleased with everyone’s play.”

The BEA junior varsity shot under 200, coming in with a 197 score. But the Fairmont JV score was incomplete.

Two JV Bucs also shot under 50. Tanner Wick had a 46 and Tannor Wolf shot a 49.

“The five seniors on the JV go out and have a great time playing a lifelong game,” coach Armstrong says. “To their credit, they are undefeated this season in dual meet action and have been great to the younger guys on the team.”

This week the Buccaneers host Waseca on Tuesday at the Riverside Town & Country Golf Club.

Cardinal Invitational

The Blue Earth Area Buccaneers shot a team total 479 in the Fairmont Cardinal Invitational played on Saturday, May 7, at the Interlaken Golf Club in Fairmont.

The Bucs were led Gavin Bruellman who shot an even 90 (45-45). Austin Thielfoldt came with a 92 (45-47).

Manning Lane shot a 97 (48-49) for BEA. Both Hunter Spencer and Braden Gudahl came in with 100s. Spencer shot a 44-56, while Gudahl had a 51-49.

Worthington won the invite with a 330 team score. Worthington’s Tyler Van Hove was medalist with a 74 (38-36).

“This was a lesson for the boys that some days the course wins. The course was set up long and difficult,” coach Armstrong said. “Gaven did an admirable job scoring a 90, and he actually hit better than that, I felt. If he can avoid the random penalty shots his stroke average will begin to drop.”

“The Windom dual was good for the boys,” Buc coach Travis Armstrong said. “It was a course nobody had been to, myself included, and we were still able to come away with a win. Hunter did an excellent job of avoiding having one really bad hole. He had a consistent round and was rewarded with the low score of the day.”
