Golf: Elks’ young (non-prom) lineup places 10th at Staples-Motley Inv.

The Elk River golfers too young to attend prom comprised the varsity lineup at the Staples-Motley Invitational on Saturday.

The young Elks tied for 10th among 14  teams at The Vintage with 385, led by Samantha Lindeen with 88. Miranda Ray had 96, Morgan Dietrich 99, Alex Filipiac 102, Morgan Bleyhl 103 and Dani Dokken 114.

“We didn’t shoot very well, but our top kids were at prom,” said coach Dave Bleyhl. “It was a chance for them (JV’s) to play in a tournament.”

Class A powerhouses Detroit Lakes and Pequot Lakes were 1-2 with 318 and 336, while Emily Isrealson of the host school medaled with 75.

The Elks will close conference duals with a match against Armstrong on Monday at Baker National.
