JORDAN — The New Ulm boys’ golf team finished the Class AA state tournament by finishing seventh overall.

The Eagles had a two-day total of 658 at Ridges of Sand Ridge, eight strokes ahead of fellow Big South Conference school Blue Earth Area for the eighth spot.

Glavine Schugel led New Ulm with a score of 150 over the two-day event, which was tied for 18th overall. Gunnar Cowing had a score of 162, followed by Matthew Janke and Aiden Guggisberg (173). Alex Glowacki (187) and Jacob Runck (209) also competed but their scores didn’t count for the event.

The Eagles graduate three seniors, but they return a young group that could be back to the tournament next year.

“They played well, they struggled in some spots but overall we were consistent,” New Ulm coach Dan Janke said. “Today’s score was a little bit higher than [Tuesday], but I think everyone’s score was higher. I think the conditions dictated. We had improvement from most of the guys, so that’s an encouraging thing.

“They saw what it’s like, three of those guys will be back next year,” Janke said. “They saw what it’s like and hopefully they can be back and encourage some of the younger guys on team to get out there this summer.”

On the girls’ side, Abbey Frauenholtz made her tournament debut and finished the event with a score of 187. She tied for 47th overall at the event.
