The Fergus Falls Otter girls golf team used two beautiful days to host its two-day home invitational Friday and Saturday.

With the goal of improvement in mind, the Otters came out firing on its home course and finished the invitational with a team score of 760.

“The coaching staff is so proud of the effort that all our Fergus golfers put forth this weekend,” Otters’ coach Ben Jurgens said.

Alexandria would win the invite posting back-to-back day low scores of 325 and 312 (637). Bemidji would take runner-up honors with a 672, while Detroit Lakes (746) rounded out the top three.

Amanda Bigger of Alexandria won medalist honors at the meet posting a 150 two-day score.

Fergus Falls’ Katie Shelstad would open up the two-day invite shooting a team best 89 and would finish the event with a 188. Teammate Morgan Daniels would shoot a 96 on day one, but finish with the top score for the Otters with a 180, shooting a 84 in day two.

Emily Johnson (185), Summer Kalenberg (207) and Abby Hobbs (215) rounded out the scoring for the Otters.

“We want to thank our golf course for all they do.

Giving us this weekend to allowing our girls to host a quality tournament is a special memory our girls program will remember,” Jurgens said.
