Senior Chase Amdahl almost penciled in his best score of the season to end the Webster Area Invitational Golf Meet April 21. Junior Tristen Traylor, did shoot his best.

“Chase (Amdahl) had a chance to break 80 coming down to the last few holes,” said Webster head coach Brian Lux. “Tristan played one of his better rounds.”

Along with Amdahl and Traylor, seniors Jayden Hortness and Tanner Valsvig teamed up with them to churn an average of 85.

“Our goal is to get three or four boys to shoot in the 80s and we can be very competitive against anyone and we got four as a result,” said Lux. “We played right with the top two teams in the state from last year.”

Meanwhile, senior Shae Sichmeller shot a personal best on the last nine holes while teammate Taylor Ryan edged close to 100.

“I come to expect Shae and Taylor to play well for us, and they did,” said Lux. “Shae shot a personal best on the second nine. Forty two is a great score.”

As far as team scores, the boys ended third, shooting a 339. Great Plains Lutheran took first with a 336.

For girls, they ended in a respectable second, shooting a 468. Clark/Willow Lake took first with 435.

The performance impressed Lux.

“I love it when some of the best teams and players come to our course, thinking they’re going to eat our course up,” said Lux. The course defended itself very well. I like to call it our home course advantage.”

Full results:

Sichmeller took second with 96; Taylor Ryan fifth, 102; Ariana Storley 17th, 131; and Madison Coester 18th, 139.

Amdahl placed fourth with 81; Traylor seventh, 84; Hortness eighth, 85; Valsvig 11th, 89; Marcus Block 23rd, 101; Trevor Case 27th, 105; Dawson Anderson 30th, 109; and Tom Knutson 34th, 115.
