Lanesboro golfers competed at two meets last week. The first was the Wabasha-Kellogg "Falcon Invite," which took place on May 1. The second was an SEC meet versus Houston, held the following afternoon.
The W-K tournament featured cold, windy, and wet conditions. Eight teams were on hand, and the Lanesboro girls took fourth (477), behind Lake City (340), W-K (396) and Lewiston-Altura (407), which tied with Fillmore Central. For the boys, LHS finished in eighth place. Lewiston-Altura took first place (338) while Lake City (340) finished second, recording an identical total for both sets of Tigers.
Thomas Hennessy of L-A was meet medalist for the boys, carding an 81. Elizabeth Hennessy, also of L-A, was the ladies' meet medalist at 80.
"We played well considering the weather and this being the girls first match of the year and the boys only second of the year," LHS coach John Smith said. "I was happy with their play for the day. We are looking to bounce back and shoot better scores as we get better weather and more practice in.
