WHS golf teams compete in Monday conference events

Worthington’s Andrew Mulder shot a nine-hole round of 36 Monday to lead the Trojans’ boys golf team to a fourth-place finish at the Big South Conference event at GreatLIFE Worthington.


Mulder’s 36 was strong enough to tie for second place among all individuals. Luverne’s Owen Sudenga shot a three-under-par 32 to earn medalist honors. The Cardinals also finished first with a composite score of 150, edging past Marshall’s 151. Redwood Valley was third at 176, followed by the Trojans at 180.


Said WHS head coach Paul Barduson: “It was a great day for Andrew Mulder --  eight pars and one bogey. He is really starting to play some good, consistent golf. He finished really strong and gained some helpful points toward all-conference.”


 Also shooting counting rounds for Worthington on Monday were Gerrit Larson and Wesley Widboom, who each had 47s, and Spenser Nickel, who carded a 50. Also competing for the Trojans were Ryan Dorsey and Brody Pederson, who had rounds of 52 and 58, respectively.




The Worthington Trojans’ girls golf team placed third as a team Monday at a Big South Conference event in Luverne.


Redwood Valley, led by medalist Mila Jenniges and her 36, finished with a team total of 182 strokes. Marshall was second at 198, and then came the Trojans at 205.


Madison Beckmann had the low round of the day for WHS with a 48. Claire Mahlberg had a 51, and Claire Meyer and Abryona Erwin each recorded 53s. Also playing for the Trojans were Regan Schaefer (56) and Jayden Spartz (59).




The Minnesota West baseball team was swept in a doubleheader Monday afternoon, as the Bluejays dropped the first game 13-7 to Riverland and then lost the second 14-3 in five innings.


Minnesota West grabbed a 3-0 first inning advantage in the opener, but Riverland answered with three in the top of the second. The Bluejays went on to lead 7-3 through four innings of play, but Riverland got one in the fifth and then struck for an eight-spot in the sixth.


In the second contest, Riverland had 3-2 edge on Minnesota West after one inning, but the guests went on to 11 runs over the next four innings to emerge with a victory via the 10-run rule. The losses drop the Bluejays to 13-19 on the season; Minnesota West is next scheduled to play a doubleheader at Rochester on Friday.




The WHS softball team was supposed to play host to Windom on Monday, but instead took on the Eagles on the road due to field conditions. Windom wound up winning a five-inning contest, 13-2.


Windom scored four runs in the first followed by two in the second, three in the third, one in the fourth and three in the fifth. The Trojans, meanwhile, did manage baserunners in every inning but the first, scoring in the second and fourth.


Hannah McNab crushed a solo home run over the fence in left-center in the second for the first WHS run.  She also got a one-out single in the fourth, stole second, then stole third as well and came home to score when the catcher’s throw went into left field.


Bailey Ponto added a double at the plate for the Trojans. Abby Linder, Sydnie Van Briesen, Emma Hietbrink and Taylor Nickel all had singles. Windom is 8-1 this season; Worthington is 3-6.
