The Tigers took second place for the second straight tournament with their success at the Winner Invitational on Tuesday.
Noah Fried shot a fourth-place 88 to lead the Tigers to a team score of 388 that was only bettered by Parkston.
Parkston ran away with the tourney, shooting 352. Six of the tourney’s top golfers were from Parkston.
As for the Tigers, Sean Moser took 11th, shooting the same 91 as ninth and 10th, but lost in tiebreaker scenarios. Jack Faehnrich took 19th at 102. Will Beadle shot 107 for 25th and Isaac Aman shot 125 for 26th.
We shot pretty well despite it being a pretty windy day,” said coach Stephen Hettick. “I’m happy with the kids’ efforts today and excited to see what they bring next week.”
Hettick added that it was good to get a chance to see region favorite Parkston on the course.
“It’s also nice to see that we’re competitive with Chamberlain,” said Hettick. “The top three teams make it to state from our region. The other team we’ll have to contend with is Redfield/Doland, but we haven’t seen them since Aberdeen.”
With three players in the top 10, the Tigers took second place at the Big Dakota Conference Tournament in Chamberlain on Thursday.
