The Marshall girls team will continue its homestand with a meet on Thursday at 4:15 p.m.


WINDOM — The Marshall boys golf team competed in the Windom Area Invite on Monday, placing first with a team score of 158. Worthington took second with a 168, followed by Pipestone Area in third (169), Luverne in fourth (171), Windom Area in fifth (176) and Redwood Valley in sixth (188).

For Marshall, Luke Ehlers led with a 37 to tie for medalist honors while Jayden Manthei had a 39 to tie for third, Evan Franson and Zach Kramer each had a 41 to tie for seventh and Jared Reinsma and Sam Schwarz each had a 43 to tie for 13th.

Marshall boys coach Kari Ehlers said she was pleased with their course management throughout the round and felt they have been playing very consistent to start the season.

“This Windom course is short yardage-wise, but fairly tight, so the boys used a lot of irons off of the tee just to keep the ball in play for a decent shot to the green in regulation. We have been working hard on setting ourselves up for success mentally with good course management in mind,” coach Ehlers said. “I was happy with the way the boys kept the ball out of the trees and gave themselves a chance for pars. The one area that tripped us up for a couple of the guys was putting. When you leave your home course it can take a couple of holes to figure out the speed and how much the ball will break. Our team’s consistent play with scoring in the mid-to-high 30’s has been really fun. All five of the guys placed in the top 15 today with Luke tying for first place and Jayden at third. I have enjoyed seeing the team veterans score well this year as well as our new guys step forward with some great scores. The team will have its first 18 hole tournament on Saturday in Fairmont and on Monday in Worthington. I am looking forward to seeing what the boys can come up with for a competitive team score.”

The Marshall boys team will compete next on Thursday at home at 4:15 p.m.
