Four of the Tigers’ five sectional players will return next year. Sophomore Matt Bagnall paced the Tigers with an 85 which included a 40 on the front nine and a 45 on the back nine at the par-72 Whispering Springs Golf Club. Bagnall finished in a four-way tie for 15th.

The Tigers shot a score of 378. The team’s other low golfers were juniors Layne Gustafson and Jonny Probst with 95s and senior Tyler Myszewski with 103. Also competing was junior Collin Meyer who shot 104.

“We were very pleased to make it this far. We just ran into tough competition and a tough golf course,” said Tiger head coach Chris Hirt whose team won a regional title.

“Overall, all the boys had an excellent season of which they should be very proud of themselves. It’s always great to make it to sectionals, so it was a great learning experience.”

Saint Mary’s Springs (Fond du Lac) won the 12-team tournament with an excellent score of 320. Martin Luther (Greendale) won a tiebreaker against Racine Prarie to place second after both teams shot 338 in regulation.

The top-two teams advance to the state tourney along with the the top-three individuals among nonqualifying teams. The medalist was Brady Sarauer of Springs with a 4-over-par 76 (37-39).

The state meet will be held Monday and Tuesday at the University Golf Course near Madison.
