Round Golf: Minnewaska Lakers Doing Well at the Benson – West Central Tribune

Benson – The plan was to run the Benson Invitational and the Minnewaska Invitational so that one group could play in the morning in one place, and then move to the other in the afternoon.

Boys’ golf teams kick off at the West Central Conference on Wednesday at 10 a.m. GMT while the WCC girls’ golf courses are simultaneously cruising at Minnewaska Golf Club. Each group played nine holes.

Next, the boys would fly to Minnewaska and the girls to Benson at 2 p.m.

As it has been all spring, the weather was getting in the way.

The girls’ portion of the Benson Invitational Invitational scheduled for Wednesday afternoon was postponed due to lightning and rain, as was the boys’ portion of the Minnewaska Invitational.

At Benson, the Minwasca boys led, shooting 162. The Lakers were led by Zach Jogisberg, Logan Kostelecki and Riley Larson, who all finished in the top five.

Gugisberg fired 38 for Medals of Honor. Kostelecky was right behind him with a 39 and Larson fired a 42.
