USC Boys 2018 Gopher Conference Runner-Up

Pyzick medalist at Girls Gopher Conference Golf Tournament

Gopher Conference All-Conference Selections

 

The Rebel boys’ and girls’ golf teams played in an 18-hole Gopher Conference Tournament at Waseca’s Lakeside Golf & Country Club on Thursday, May 17, 2018.  The weather was perfect—finally.

 

The boys’ team results are as follows:

 

1)      Maple River  324

2)      United South Central  345

3)      Bethlehem Academy  373

4)      Blooming Prairie  377

5)      NRHEG  412

 

With their 2nd place finish today, the Rebel varsity boys’ golf team record stands at 27-14 for the season.

 

Individually, Andrew Heggen led the Rebels with a score of 83.  Nolan Magnuson shot 85, Blake Legred shot 86, and Aaron Schaper shot 91 to round out the team score of 345—their best 18-hole team score for the season Also participating for the Rebels were Carson Wegner, who shot 100, and Adam Stenzel, who shot 105.

 

Based on performance averages throughout the conference season, two USC boys received Gopher Conference All-Conference trophies this year.  Junior Nolan Magnuson and Sophomore Andrew Heggen tied for fourth in conference overall.  Ironically, both had exactly the same number of strokes during conference meets (171) and, therefore, had exactly the same average 9-hole score (42.8).  Congratulations, Nolan and Andrew!

 

One USC boy received Gopher Conference Honorable Mention this season, as well.  Blake Legred took 182 strokes during conference meets this season, for a 9-hole average of 45.5.  Congratulations, Blake! 
 

Morgan Pyzick was the medalist for the Conference Meet and she also received All-Conference status by besting all other girl golfers by more than 4 strokes, on average, for the season.

 

Both teams return to action next Thursday, May 24, 2018, when they host a conference meet at Oakview to end the regular season. The meet starts at 4:30 p.m. and will involve USC, NRHEG, Blooming Prairie, and Bethlehem Academy.
