Minot finishes second at Bismarck High Invitational
The Minot Magicians were back on the links at the Bismarck High Invitational on Tuesday. The field consisted of ten teams and was played at Riverwood Golf Course. Six golfers from each team participated and the Magicians finished in second place at the end of the event.
Minot was led by Peyton Bartsch, who shot a 78 (42 on the front nine, 36 on the back nine) on Tuesday afternoon. His score ranked fifth best among all golfers.
“Peyton Bartsch had a slow start, but never makes big mistakes so he was able to play well down the stretch,” coach Shane Hannegrefs tells the Minot Daily News.
It wasn’t just Bartsch who helped the Magicians reach second place, it was an overall team effort on the course. Brock Jones shot an 82 (41 on the front nine, 41 on the back nine), Henry Langhans shot an 83 (42 on the front nine, 41 on the back nine), Kasen Rostad shot an 83 (43 on the front nine, 40 on the back nine), Tyler Bast shot an 82 (41 on the front nine, 41 on the back nine), and Jaxon Bradley shot an 86 (45 on the front nine, 41 on the back nine) to bring the Magicians to their total for the day.
They combined for a team score of 325, falling short of Century who took the top spot with an overall score of 302. Moving forward, coach Hannegrefs would like to focus on chipping and putting to help the team improve.
Dickinson finished the day in third place with a score of 330, Bismarck High finished in fourth with 339, and Legacy finished in fifth with 344 to round out the top five.
The Magicians will be back in action on Friday, as they head to The Links of North Dakota for the Williston Invitational.
