The Norsemen golf teams took on Ogden at the Don Williams course, and despite some windy conditions, it was a beautiful day for golf. The R-S boys improved their record to 4-0 thus far this season with a 161-170 victory over the Bulldogs.

Grant Waline tied for first place in the medalist race, carding a 39. He took the outright medalist crown in a playoff, singing a six foot putt on the second playoff hole.

Will Halstead tied for third with a 40, and also had a playoff, losing on the first playoff hole. Cole Matheason and Will Larson each shot rounds of 41. Tyler Risdal came in with a 45, and Alex Retallick shot a 49. Zach Waterbury had a 39 to lead Ogden. Harry Haglund posted a 40 for the Bulldogs.

“We played our best golf of the year as a team,” said Coach Tyler Frederiksen. “It was a great night and a good way to end the week, where we had four meets in five days.”

The Norse girls came up short against Ogden, losing by nine, 223-232. Susie Weaver and Sydney Mathis paced the Norsemen with rounds of 54; good for runner up and third place. Sydney Weaver was one shot back at 55. Jaeda Pitman carded a 69, and Alayna Ringsby and Tori Fournier rounded out the varsity lineup with rounds of 71 and 79, respectively.

“There was some win and temps were in the 70s,” said Coach Larry Ammerman, “and our scores are starting to drop as we gain some more experience.”

The junior varsity teams also competed. The boys’ squad included: Carson Ehrenberg (46), CJ Arnold (47), Ben Carlson (48), Nic Turner (49), Dylan Matheason (49) and John Barclay (53).
