ELBOW LAKE — Described as a picture-perfect day by West Central Area girls’ golf coach Kari Kreft, the teams of the Quad County Conference took the course at Tipsinah Mounds in search of team and individual success Monday.
The Otters Tail Central girls team would win the meet shooting a team score of 385. West Central Area (400) and Hillcrest (458) finished two and three.
The Bulldogs were led on the course by medalist Adysen Tysdal as she shot an 85. Teammate Megan Weber placed in fourth with a 94.

“The Lady Knights had a good day,” Kreft said. “ Nice shots, some personal bests, medals for everyone and all-conference recognition for some made for a great day. It was also an emotional day as four of our varsity members are seniors and this was their last competitive meet at Tipsinah. There have been many good memories made here, life lessons learned and friendships formed and it is hard to see it all come to an end.”
Ten golfers were recognized as all-conference in the Quad County Conference. Jessica St. Martin was one of these golfers; finishing in second place for the season. “This is an accomplishment to be very proud of. It showcases her strength and consistency as a golfer in the conference.” Lexi Poyzer also earned all-conference honors for the second year in a row.
