The Gopher girls' team was paced by Morgan Henry, who fired the team's lowest score for her first time this spring with a 49. Paige Isensee shot the next lowest round for Chatfield with a 52. Pam Lisowski followed Isensee by shooting a 72 while Makara Fahrenholtz rounded out the qualifying scores for the Gophers with a 74. However, Chatfield's cumulative score of 247 wasn't enough to exact revenge on the Warriors, whose team score was 206.
Chatfield's boys' team again was led by Chris Hanson, who was one of three Gophers to shoot in the 40s, as the sophomore penciled in a 47 on his scorecard. Alex Hompe followed Hanson, shooting one stroke higher than him with a 48. Levi Roline rounded out the trio of Gophers to break 50 as he shot his low round of the spring with a 49. Rhett Littrell contributed the fourth lowest round for Chatfield, firing a 58. The Gopher boys' team finished with a team score of 202 and earned its first win of the season, edging the Warriors by three strokes.
The Gopher golfers were scheduled to be back in action early this week with away meets on Monday and Tuesday. On Monday they will travel to Ferndale Country Club in Rushford to take on the R-P Trojans. Then, on Tuesday, Chatfield will play at Root River Country Club in Spring Valley against Kingsland. The Gophers will close out the week with a home meet against Fillmore Central on Thursday.
