WHS girls golf team win season-opening meet

The Worthington Trojans girls golf team took first place in Saturday’s nine-team Worthington Invitational, winning by 11 strokes over their nearest competitor on a very breezy day,


The Trojans had a team score of 437 strokes. Fairmont was second, followed by Russell-Tyler-Ruthton, Murray County Central and Luverne.


Individually, Madison Beckmann had the lowest round for Worthington on the day at 104, which was good for fifth place overall. Claire Mahlberg was right behind her in sixth place overall with a 107. Claire Meyer carded a 109 for the Trojans and was in ninth place individually, and Abryona Erwin shot a 117 and was 12th. Also competing for Worthington were Peyton Nickel (129) and Regan Schaefer (136).


Fairmont’s Brynn Gustafson and Murray County Central’s Ava Johnson tied for low round at 97. Windom Area’s Ava Lund was three strokes off the pace at 100.


Both the Trojans girls and boys golf team host Luverne in a Tuesday afternoon meet at GreatLIFE Worthington.




The Worthington High baseball team split a pair of games over the weekend, beating Jackson County Central 9-2 on Friday and losing 11-5 to Albert Lea on Saturday.


Tucker Brandner, Brandon Bosma and Austin Gruis each had a pair of hits against the Huskies, and Bosma also drove in two runs. Manny Saravia contributed a double, and Max Ostrem and Ayden Stugelmeyer also had two RBIs each. Brandner threw the first four innings, striking out seven and walking two while allowing just one earned run in earning the pitching victory. Stugelmeter pitched the fifth and sixth, and Matthias Noble struck out the side in the seventh.


On Saturday, WHS was limited to just three hits, as Noble had a double and Saravia and Bosma a single each. The Trojans have home games on Tuesday against Windom and Friday against Redwood Valley.




WHS was defeated in its softball season opener Saturday afternoon, as it was beaten by visiting Albert Lea 16-9.


The game was a see-saw affair early on, and the Trojans led 8-5 after four innings before the Tigers rallied. Worthington did get a solo home run from Hannah McNab in the game. The Trojans next play Tuesday at Redwood Valley.


Worthington was one of seven teams competing Friday at a track and field meet in Luverne.

For the Trojan boys, Tethlouch Gach was a first-place winner for the Trojans in the 100-meter and 300-meter hurdles, Jacari Swinea took first in the 200 meters, Austin Kinser earned a victory in the 400 meters and Fanuel Wolday captured the 3,200 meters.

A second Trojans’ 4x200 meter relay team was third.


Also for the boys individually, Thet Tay was second in the high jump. Morke second in the 100 meters and Isaac Kinser second in the 400 meters.

The girls 4x100 and 4x200 meter relay teams each earned second place.
