Hayfield plans another trip to the state – this time in men’s golf – Reuters Sports News
ROCHESTER – Hayfield has had a record few years when it comes to the success of its men’s sports teams.
Its men’s basketball team has won back-to-back state championships for the past two years, and its baseball team could accomplish the same remarkable feat this spring.
Now, the Vikings men’s golf team looks set to partake in the school’s championship wins.
The Vikings shot a solid 345 in the first round of the Section 1A Boys’ Golf Meet on Tuesday at Eastwood Golf Course. That gives them a 14-stroke lead over Rushford-Peterson going into Wednesday’s final round, with the winner earning a trip to the Class A state meet on June 14-15 at Pebble Creek Golf Club in Becker.
Hayfield was led Tuesday by three golfers who are in the top six individually. Keegan Bronson (78) is second going into the final round of the sectional encounter, while Sam Tucker (87) is fifth and Kolton Fiedler (88) is tied for sixth.
The defending Lanesboro Division champion (368) is tied for third with Fillmore Central, 23 shots behind the Vikings.
Fillmore Central’s Jake Fishbaugher leads the individual scorers after 18 holes. He shot 77 from 5 over par to hold a one-shot lead over Bronson.
RP’s Andrew Hoiness (83) is third, while Lanesboro’s Clay Schwichtenberg (86) and Hayfield’s Tucker round out the top five.
