Burro senior Johanna Bearson qualified as an individual, and finished in 12th place on an 88-player leader board that included some very tough competitors. It was her fourth trip to state. In 2012, she finished 20th.
"Johanna had a great state tournament finishing off a great career on the Lanesboro golf team," LHS coach John Smith noted. "She had some great shots during the two day tournament as she went head to head against some of the best golfers in the state."
Bearson had a two-day total of 180, comprised of an 89 on Tuesday and a 91 on Wednesday. Russell-Tyler-Ruthton senior Hannah Kruger was tournament medalist after firing 163, four strokes ahead of Lauren Laffen of Sleepy Eye High School. In team competition, Legacy Christian Academy won the tournament with a four-player, two-day total of 752, some 19 strokes better than Badger-Greenbush-Middle River.
Smith also expressed his wish to publicly thank "all the players, families and Burro followers for the great support and contributions throughout the season."
