Lead Summary
Greg Hoogeveen

The Luverne High School golf teams competed in the Section 3AA Tournament at Oakdale Golf Club in Buffalo Lake this past week.
The boys’ team is currently tied for second after Round 1 of competition Thursday, May 25, when the Cardinals placed second out of 16 teams.
“We didn’t have our best day, but if we play like we know we can, we still have a chance to catch New London Spicer,” boys’ head coach John Sichmeller said.  
“Owen Sudenga is in second place individually and he did a really good job of grinding out his round in tough conditions and making some putts at the end.”
Sudenga led Luverne with an 18-hole score of 74.
Senior Brady Bork and junior Henry Hartquist each shot 83, junior Tyler Arends shot 84, and sophomore Levi Gonnerman and eighth-grader Will Bergman finished with 87 each.
The LHS girls’ team placed eighth out of 12 teams on Wednesday, May 24, ending the Cardinals’ season as a team. 
However, senior Lauren Hansen (100) and juniors Perceyis Trierweiler (106) and Kiesli Smith (107) qualified to advance in section play at the Oakdale Golf Club Wednesday, May 31.
“Our girls hung in there all day,” head coach Chris Nowatzki said.
 “It was not our best golf, but we did have a couple personal bests, so all in all a good day.”
