Cherokee Braves' season ends

OKOBOJI - East Sac County won the team championship at the Class 2A Sectional Golf Tournament here on Friday with a score of 319, and Alta-Aurelia finished second, with a score of 322. Both teams will advance to the District Tournament, which will take place Friday at the Lake Creek Golf Course in Storm Lake.

The Alta-Aurelia Boys team
Zach Mason of East Sac was meet medalist with an 18-hole score of 71; Alta-Aurelia's Spencer Bezoni was runner-up medalist with a 76; Okoboji's Tyler Ohl wa third with a 79; and Alta-Aurelia's Jaden Holton, East Sac's Justin Kraft and Sioux Central's Gus Loving tied for 4th with their rounds of 80. These six golfers will also advance to the District Tournament.

In addition to Bezoni and Holton, other players scoring for Alta-Aurelia were Colton Ballantyne (87) and Nick Radke (89).

Alta-Aurelia finished second with a 332, followed by Sibley-Ocheyedan 336, Okoboji 341, Emmetsburg 355, Cherokee 385, Sioux Central 387, and North Union 401.

Jake Spindler and Adam Pitts paced Cherokee with a pair of 84s. Also playing for the Braves were Austin Winchell, Zac Anderson, Devin Mongan, and Rick Weaver.

Adam Pitts
"This was not how we envisioned our season ending," noted Cherokee coach James DeVos. "This team had been building momentum coming into the sectional meet but we couldn't get the job done today. Golf is a funny sport like that sometimes.

"Jake Spindler and Adam Pitts both tied for 9th place overall and the Braves finished 6th out of eight teams to bring our 2012 season to a close. We will be saying goodbye to five seniors from the varsity squad which means next year will be a very green team.

Jake Spindler
"These seniors had a lot of fun and have been great contributors to Cherokee Braves Golf. They will be missed, and I wish them the very best in the future."
