SENTINEL TRIBUNE Wednesday, June 3, 2009 Page 9 By Digger Phelps We have passed the Memorial Day weekend, which usually signals the busiest time of year at Rolling Hills, but we're hav- ing some trouble convincing Mother Nature to cooperate. Windy or otherwise nasty conditions have severely cur- tailed our ladies, and men's day activities, and presently, there are no complete results in any of our leagues. As soon as there are a few more complete matches, they'll be reported. The '~wo-Bar" invitational will take place this weekend, and there are still spots available. The course will be closed to anyone other than participants both Saturday and Sunday until approxi- mately 5:00 p.m. For those brave souls who have braved the conditions on some of the recent men's and ladies, days, we can only say that they are true "Minnesota Golfers". We've always said that if you can't golf in wind, you can't golf at Rolling Hills. There's even been some serious talk about installing a wind tower up on one of our higher spots!!! We want to congratulate all of the high school golfers on a very successful season, and wish Alexis Quade and Derek Eichner the best of luck at the state meet. This is a pinnacle of success for any high school golfer, and represents the culmination of a great deal of hard work over a long period of time. Congratulations to both Alexis and Derek!! The couples tournament will be held on Saturday, June 20, and is open to the public. We've been asked if there are any requirements regarding golfing with one's spouse, etc. This tourna- ment is open to any male- female team with no other restrictions. Call the club- house for more information and for registration. I think that as I'm finish- ing this writing the wind has subsided to a level of 15-20 mph, which is about as low as it's been for a week or so -- better get out and hit some balls!! I'll see you on the course!! Six events advance to sections in girls track By Joan Zieske Coach Six events in girls track will advance to the Section Meet as a result of the Sub- Section 3A meet held at Worthington Thursday, May 21.

Thea will also be advancing in the high jump and Krystle in the 200 and 400 meter dash. Maddie Frank will be competing at the Section Meet in the 300 hurdles and Chloe Arfsten in the pole vault. The weather was great and the track team had a good day with many of the young ladies ending their season with a personal best. Chanel Madson threw a per- sonal best in the discus and won a sixth place medal. Chanel also ran a personal best of 2:46.03 in the 800 meter run. Chloe Arfsten ran a personal best in the 300 hurdles and placed sev- enth. Tegan Derickson ran a personal best in the 200 meter dash and Melanie Kedl ran a personal best in the 800 M. run.

He earned the spot at the sec- tion tournament last week in Marshall. It did not look good for Derek after nine holes, but he mounted a charge on the back nine to save his round. He started the back with 3 straight birdies to regain control over his round. The 78 was good enough for a 5th place finish overall and his second birth in the state tournament. It is not always easy to earn a state trip as a senior after you have done that as a junior. Derek has done it and now he can focus on the- tournament. Congratulations to Derek ! Sta e berth Alexis Quade earned a trip to the 2009 class A state golf tournament to be played in Becker, MN. Alexis has played well down the stretch and has lowered her scores to the mid 40s. In the sec- tion tournament, she contin- ued that formula by shooting a 45 on the front nine in Marshall. On the back nine, Alexis shot a 50 to finish with a 95 overall. Last year this would have been an easy qualifier to state. This year the 95 meant more holes in the form if a sudden death play- off. Low 2 scores go to state and the person with the high score, their season ends. Alexis took charge of the play-off from the start as she hit a drive 100 yards past the Other 2 players. Her next shot was by the green where she pitched on, 2 putted and earned a hard By Carter Ross Coach The boys golf team placed 2nd at the subsection tour- nament.

Jared Lindaman (86) and Patrick Schweim (89) were the only Chargers to break 90. In the section tournament, with a state tournament birth on the line, WWG ran into a buzz saw in Springfield. Springfield shot a very good 324 to defeat WWG by 16. Derek Eichner shot a 78 'to lead the Chargers. The team placed third overall 4 strokes behind Windom for second place. The Chargers say good-bye to Derek, Brandon Jenniges, and Marcus Madson as their Charger. golf careers come to an end. The team ends the season with the most wins ever at 36-12.
