BATTLE LAKE — In a meet at Balmoral Golf Course, the West Central Area boys’ and Otter Tail Central girls’ teams celebrated a meet win Thursday.
In boys action, the Knights won the meet with a 353 team score, while Hillcrest (387) and Ortonville (412) rounded out the top three. Area teams Otter Tail Central (fifth, 423) Ashby (seventh, 437), Rothsay (eighth, 437) and Underwood (INC) also competed at the meet.
"It was another good day for our guys but the good thing is they are still hungry to get better,” Knights boys head coach Kraig Hunter said. “Many of them were disappointed in their scores and a lot of strokes they left out there were course management mistakes which we will continue to work on as we get to practice more on the course."
