Golf season at half-way point

The Osmond High School golf squad continued its busy golf schedule as they participated in three invitationals, including the Lewis and Clark Championships. The team just passed the midway point of its season and districts are less than two weeks away.

Hartington Invitational

The worst weather of the year greeted the players on the morning of the Hartington invitational. With rain and snow falling, a decision was made to shorten the tourney to nine holes. Seventy-five players played through the soaking conditions. Zach Kumm and Aric Krienert each carded 48s, Dante Schmit shot 49 and Seth Gutz shot a 52. As a team, Osmond shot a 197 and finished in ninth place in the 16-team field. Cedar Catholic claimed team honors with a 164.

Krienert in Pierce Top 10 

Sophomore Aric Krienert shot his season best with rounds of 43-43 for an 86 total and placed ninth in the 58-player field at the Pierce invitational. Jamy McCoy shot 79 to win medalist honors and help Laurel win team honors. Zach Kumm and Dante Schmit each carded 95s for the Tigers to finish in 24th and 25th places, respectively, and Seth Gutz totaled an even 100 to finish 35th.

As a team, Osmond shot a 376 to tie Pierce for sixth place. The 376 matched a season low for the Tigers in tourney competition.

Kumm Finishes Sixth

in Conference

Osmond played in the Lewis and Clark Championships on Monday, May 5. The tournament was played at the Old Dane Course in Dakota City. The tournament field included the four new teams who have just joined the conference, making the field very competitive.

Junior Zach Kumm put together his best round of the year and finished in the top 10 with a sixth-place finish. Zach shot rounds of 41-42 to card his 83. Individual honors went to Sam Mueret of Plainview who shot a one under 71. Junior Seth Gutz carded a career best 18-hole total of 94 and was matched by Aric Krienert at 94. Dante Schmit again played well, shooting 97, to give the Tigers a team total of 368, which finished them in a tie for fifth place, only three strokes from third. The 368 total is the lowest carded for the tournament season thus far.
