Burros golfers closed out their team seasons at the Subsection 1A Tournament on May 20, but some will continue on to the section championships as individuals.
Lanesboro finished fourth in both boys and girls totals. There were seven teams in attendance at Willow Creek Golf Course, where Lewiston/Altura won the boys title, followed by Rushford-Peterson. For the ladies, Fillmore Central finished first, followed by Wabasha-Kellogg. All four of those clubs will move on to section play.
Fillmore Central's Jordan Miller and Katie Tammel were the meet medalists, with rounds of 76 and 84, respectively.
For the Lanesboro ladies, Hope Knepper fired 108, followed by Alexis Jorgensen (114), Mckenzie Hanson (121) and Madeline Snyder (122). Heather Boyum and Amy Kelly also played for the Burros.
