Trojans' boys golfers win another home meet

The Worthington Trojans boys golf team won another meet as it defeated Pipestone Area 177-184 on a cool and breezy Thursday afternoon at GreatLIFE Worthington.


WHS coach Paul Barduson noted that scores were tough and pars at premium, with two Trojans –- Spenser Nickel and Andrew Mulder – fighting hard to earn co-medalist honors with rounds of 42. Worthington’s Logan Powers shot a 45 to place fourth overall, and teammate Garret Larson had a 48 for seventh overall. Also competing for the Trojans were Wesley Widboom (50) and Ryan Dorcey (52).


In girls golf, Worthington compiled a team score of 205 in its home meet against the Arrows. Pipestone Area did not have a complete team. Shooting counting rounds for the Trojans were Madison Beckmann, who led all golfers with a 47, along with Claire Meyer’s 48 and Claire Mahlberg and Abryona Erwin’s rounds of 54. Also competing were Regan Schaefer (56) and Peyton Nickel (63).




The Worthington High School softball team traveled to Fairmont on Thursday afternoon and was defeated in five innings by the Cardinals, 16-5.


A three-run homer by Hannah McNab in the first gave the Trojans a 3-0 advantage. Fairmont got to within 3-2, but WHS put up two more to rebuild its three-run lead. The Cardinals, though, ultimately got their offense going to pick up the triumph via the 10-run rule.


Bailey Ponto contributed a 3-for-3 day at the plate for the Trojans, and Maddie Petersen had a pair of hits as well. Worthington is now 1-3 this season.




The Worthington Trojans boys tennis team was triumphant for the second team in two meets this week as it won on the road Thursday in Pipestone, 6-1.


At singles, No. 1 Ian Barber of the Trojans won his match by a score of 6-1 6-2, and Evan Hansberger was victorious for WHS at No. 2 6-1 6-1. Trojan tennis players won the other two singles matches as well, with Dylan Dykstra coming out on top 6-1 6-2 at No. 3 and Bennett Oberloh winning by default at No. 4.


In doubles play, Worthington earned wins at the No. 2 and No. 3 spots. The No. 2 pairing of Soe Nay Htoo and Kaw Blay and the No. 3 tandem of Daelen Sithad and Diego Ramos Loza each triumphed by default.




In high school baseball Thursday, the Trojans led 1-0 after three innings, but Fairmont scored seven runs in the top of the fourth and went on to post a 9-1 win at the Worthington Middle School field.


WHS got its run in the third when, with two out and nobody on, Tucker Brandner struck out but reached first on a wild pitch. Brandner stole second and came around to score when Matthias Noble reached first on an infield single and the throw to first got away on the play.


Fairmont, however, bounced back in a big way. Trojans pitcher Max Ostrem was one strike away from getting out of the fourth without allowing a run, but an RBI double tied the game and a throwing error kept things going, beginning an onslaught that ended with seven runs – six of them unearned.


Manny Saravia and Ostrem had the other hits for Worthington, which is now 3-2 this spring.
