All six Hi-Liners carded season-best rounds Wednesday at CrossRoads Golf Course in Carrington, N.D., as junior Jared Lentzâ€™s sixth-place 76 led Valley City to seventh for four points at 330.
â€śConditions were maybe the best we have had all year, which is hard to believe, as they played 18 holes in the drizzle and rain today,â€ť Hi-Liner head coach Buff Murray said. â€śNo wind was a big plus for the first tournament this year.â€ť
Senior Dustin Miller shot an 83, freshman Drew Oberlander an 85, sophomore Collin Hoss an 86, freshman Levi Nix an 88, and junior Ian
Schweitzer a 90.
â€śIâ€™m very happy with the way the boys played,â€ť Murray said. â€śBut, as the kids would say, they can all score better.â€ť
Lentz averages a 79.67 for ninth in the Eastern Dakota Conference. Hoss averages an 89.67, Oberlander a 90.33, Miller a 90.67, Nix a 92.33, Schweitzer a 95.67.
Grand Forks Central sophomore Riley Peterson won the Invite with a 71. West Fargo senior Riley Johnson leads all individuals with a 74 average.
Fargo Davies took Wednesdayâ€™s top spot with a 307, and leads all 10 teams with 9.3 points per event and a 320.33 team average.
Valley Cityâ€™s 330 is their third straight seventh-place finish, and improves upon April 22â€™s 354 at Village Green Golf Course in Moorhead, Minn., and May 1â€™s 363 at Grand Forks Country Club.
