Riverside Town &

Country Club Meet

Once again, the team scores at a boys golf meet the United South Central Rebels were at were very close. In fact, the top three teams were within three strokes of each other.

But, this time the Rebels came out on top.

USC shot a 172 to take the top spot at the meet which was held on Monday, May 10, at the Riverside Town & Country Club near Blue Earth.

In second place was Blooming Prairie with a 174 and in third was Faribault Bethlehem Academy with a 175. Maple River had a 186, New Richland-Hartland-Ellendale-Geneva shot a 202 and Hayfield had an incomplete score.

The low score for the day for the Rebels, and shared medalist honors, went to USC’s Kadyn Neubauer, a freshman. He shot a one-over par 37. Hayfield’s Keegan Bronson shared medalist honors, also shooting a 37.

USC’s Blake Bullerman, also a freshman, shot a 41 to finish in fourth place overall. Luke Pederson and Landan Magnuson both shot identical 47s to complete the Rebels’ team tally.

USC’s other two golfers, Nick Shindler and Levi Hinkley, carded a 53 and 55 respectively.



The United South Central Rebels boys golf team took second in a four team quadrangular held at the Minn-Iowa Golf Course in Elmore on Saturday, May 8.

Blue Earth Area placed first with a team tally of 313, the USC Rebels were second with a score of 340, edging out Fairmont at 342 and Albert Lea at 346.

“Placing second was not bad,” coach Brad Heggen said. “Especially given USC competes in Minnesota’s Class A and the other three schools are larger and compete in either Class AA or Class AAA.”

The low score of the day, and medalist honors, went to Braden Gudahl, of BEA, who shot an even par 72 for the 18-hole meet.

USC’s freshman Kadyn Neubauer led the way for the Rebels yet again, with a good score of 80 and was tied for fourth overall.

Landan Magnuson shot an 84 for USC, Luke Pederson had an 86 and Blake Bullerman came in with a 90 to complete USC’s team score.

The other two Rebels competing were Levi Hinkley who came in with a 108 and Carter Hart who shot a 111.
