When golfers from Spring Lake Park (SLP) and St. Francis teed up on the links at the TPC, Blaine for Monday’s NSC conference championships the sun shone and a cool breeze tickled the fairways.
Play on the course was pleasant, as well, and SLP boys won the conference title and the Panther girls finished fourth.
St. Francis boys, meanwhile, finished with two points fewer than the SLP boys. The Saints girls finished in third place, scoring just one point more than SLP girls.
Two St. Francis girls were named all-conference, two were named honorable mention. Making the all-conference team were Emily Larson and Paige Berg while MacKenzie Belisle and Alex Hillesheim were honorable mention.
Three SLP girls – Ally Rogers, Ali Schultz and Miranda Olson – also made all-conference while their teammate, Allie Guzy, was named honorable mention.
SLP boys making all-conference include Nick Auman, Brandon Jones, Nick Turnquist and Jack Hiemenz. Charlie Glasser was named honorable mention.
For St. Francis, Brett Aldrich was named to the all-conference team and Mitch Zebro and Andy Cullen were named all-conference honorable mention.
