Lanesboro at Lyle-Pacelli, May 6
Senior Johanna Bearson medaled at the par 36 venue, bringing in a round of 43. The Burros finished with a team score of 238, while their hosts posted an "incomplete" since they only had two of the required four varsity players.

Maggie Lief of L-P shot a 48, while Kim Krulish brought in a 64.

"We've finally got a few meets in now..." boys/girls golf coach John Smith noted. "We're really young this year."
Smith added that teaching the fundamentals to inexperienced golfers hasn't been easy with the weather. "It's been a tough year to practice," he stated, "that's been a big issue."
Lanesboro is scheduled to travel to GMLO on Tuesday, May 14. Thursday is a make-up date for the boys, who will travel to Glenville-Emmons. On Friday, the conference championships will be held in Adams. On Tuesday May 21, the sub-section tourney will take place at Willow Creek, Smith said.
