The top-four teams qualify for the sectional along with the topfour individuals from nonqualifying teams. The sectional meet was scheduled to be held May 30 at the Rolling Meadows Golf Course in Fond du Lac.

Sheboygan Lutheran won the regional with an 18-hole score of 327 – edging HG which totaled 328. Elkhart shot 333 and Manitowoc Roncall took fourth with 343.

HG senior Matthew Bagnall shared medalist honors with Roncalli’s Ian Behringer – both golfers shooting 5-over-par 76s. EL-G junior Max Ward finished third with a 77.

The HG Tigers’ other low players were Jack Baldwin with an 82, Mason Valenstein, 83 and Ryan Splittgerber, 87.

The EL-G Resorters’ other low golfers were Dante Miller with an 84 and Brennen Cain and Sam Lutzke with 86s.

“It was a great competitive event. We have one of the toughest regionals around in my opinion, so we are happy to play well and advance to sectionals,” said Resorter head coach Bart Larson.

“They all played really well and Max led the way with a 77. Sectionals will be jam-packed with talent, so we are going to have to play really well to keep our season alive,” said Larson.

“This was a great performance for our team and one of the best I can remember for Howards Grove since I began coaching here,” said Tiger head coach Joe Hansen who is in his second season at HG.

“Matt played great golf today and showed his ability to go very low today. I was very happy with how our team handled the wind and the rain and they continue to improve as the season goes on. Our team overall appears to be peaking at the right time.”
