Monday was filled with great weather, an abundance of competition and a fine finish for the boys of the Northeast Iowa Conference as Decorah hosted the annual boys conference golf tournament at Oneota Golf & Country Club.
The Vikings completed the day in second place with a 337, behind Waverly-Shell Rock who tallied a 315.
In addition to the runner-up finish as a team, Decorah had four all-conference golfers. Senior Ben Bockman came through with an 81 (41-40) to finish seventh overall with Cade Hubka on his heels in eighth with an 82 (40-42). Jackson Pipho fired an 86 (42-44) to finish 13th, as Carter Dlhy concluded the Viking scorecard in 15th with an 88 (43-44). Andrew Rhodes (42-47=89) and Andrew Olson (43-48=91) were also on the course.
“It is great to see those guys earn some medals and have some of their hard work pay off. We need to continue to be more consistent and lower our scores at sectionals,” said Coach Casey Bouska.
Decorah opened the postseason Wednesday in the sectional tournament hosted by West Delaware at Pin Oaks Links in Manchester. If the Vikes advance they will play Monday, May 13, at Waverly Municipal Golf Course at 10 a.m.
