The Howard Tigers participated in two golf meets on Monday. Some golfers played in the Howard Invitational while others played in the Jesse James Invitational at Garretson.
Led by meet medalist Cal Wiese, the Howard Tigers placed second at the Howard Invitational with a score of 130 for the nine-hole event.
Wiese carded a low score of 36 to claim medalist honors.
Howard had three other golfers place in the top 10. Cole Hodges was third with a 40, Andrew Schwader eighth with a 54 and Evan Donahue ninth with a 56.
"Cal was the boys' medalist for the fifth straight year at the Howard Invitational," Howard Coach Al Wiese said.
In the girls division, Shelby Thompson guided the Tigers to the team title. The Tigers finished with a 143 to claim the team honors. Thompson fired a 46 and claimed medalist honors.
"She had a very good round to win the first-place medal for the girls," Wiese said.
All of Howard's golfers placed in the top five. Shelby Borgers finished third with a 48, Kelsey Dawson was fourth with a 49 and McKenna Rudebusch was fifth with a 52.
"A lot of kids got an opportunity to play on a nice day," Wiese said.
Jesse James Invitational
The Jesse James meet was a combination of varsity and junior varsity golfers competing against each other. The Howard girls' team won the team title with a 315 for the 18-hole event. There were three teams competing in the girls' division.
Tiger Alexa Goldammer was the meet medalist with a low score of 94. Karly Litterick was 10th with a 110 and Kamry Esser was 11th with a 111.
Taylor Noid rounded out the competitors for the Tigers with a 138 and a 16th-place finish.
"I am very proud of the four girls and how they represented Howard," said Coach Lisa Wiese. "This was their first time golfing 18 holes. I know they were very leery of having to golf 18 holes vs. nine holes, but they all rose to the challenge and did their best."
In the boys' division, Howard placed fourth out of eight teams with a score of 271.
Isaiah Glanzer was the top golfer for the Tigers. He finished ninth with an 86. David Weidler was 12th with a 91 while Drew Wiese was 14th with a 94. Brandon Jacobson shot a 103.
"The boys also made their way through golfing 18 holes and just came up one stroke short of third place," Wiese said.
Howard will be back on the course Monday as the Tigers go to Volga for the Sioux Valley Invitational. Action will begin at 9 a.m.
