Minot North over Century, Minot High in at third spot

Kari Gibb/MDN Minot High eighth grader, Parker Argent, tees off at the Minot North Invitational last week at Vardon.

The countdown has begun. The 2024 NDHSAA Class A Boys Golf State Tournament will be held on June 4-5 at Kings Walk Golf Course in Grand Forks. The West Region Tournament will be Wednesday, May 29, at the Jamestown Country Club. The final prep event is the Dickinson Invitational on Friday, May 17, at the Heart River Golf Course.

So much is known as the season winds down.

So much is still unknown as well.

The Minot North Sentinels continued their battle for the top stop with Bismarck Century. The Sentinels beat the Patriots at the St. Mary’s Invitational on Tuesday, with a score of 318 to 319 and the top score at the meet was for Minot North junior Kasen Rostad with a 75 for the day.

Mandan senior Jayce Johnson carded a 76 for sole possession of second place while Minot North junior Bennett Bartsch and Century senior Aidan Kaufman each shot 77 and tied for third place.

Minot High is making strides as the season draws to an end with eighth grader Parker Argent hitting a 79 on the round for seventh place at the invitational. While his 79 is the top score for the Magicians, it would also have been the top score for six other teams as well.
