Rush City golfers brave the weather

Fessenden and LeMon  earn medalist honors

The Rush City boys and girls golf teams hosted Moose Lake-Willow River and Barnum last Thursday for a home tri-meet despite tough weather conditions.

The Tiger boys finished second of the three teams with a combined score of 209, behind Moose Lake-Willow River’s mark of 180.

Junior Dylan Fessenden was a medalist against both teams at the outing, posting a score of 40 on the day. Senior Nick Schmidt had the the second-lowest score at 47, followed by eighth-grader Jacob Scherer at 59. Eighth-grader T.J. Roth rounded out the scoring at 63.

On the girls team, sophomore Brea LeMon posted a 50, earning her medalist honors against Moose Lake-Willow River and co-medalist honors against Barnum.

Sophomore Heather Fisher earned a mark of 59, followed by junor Sara Johnson (70) and senior Chelsea Hauner (83).

Moose Lake-Willow River posted the low score of the day with a 239, followed by Barnum with 243 and the Tigers at 262.

Head coach Jeremy Albright said he was thankful to Bulrush Golf Course for allowing golfers on the course, considering the weather.

“We were very fortunate to get this meet in,” Albright said. “It’s been raining all week and I thought there was no way we were going to be able to play. It was cold, and the course was wet, but the kids toughed it out.”
