Dollars for kids: Big turnout PDF Print E-mail

golf-rolbiecki“The eighth annual Dollars for Scholars (DFS) golf tournament had 18 teams participate, the most we’ve ever had,” according to Jim Rolbiecki (right).

“It was exciting to see such a large turnout.”
“It was a bit hectic at the start,” added Harlen Ulrich, “but everyone got into a good tempo and things moved more quickly.
Ulrich added, “It was a perfect day and the course looked great!”
A passing storm in the early morning hours gave Minneota about .7” of rain, according to groundskeeper Brandon Hennen. That shot of rain seemed to settle the dust and give the ground a good cushion.
“A roll when you got here, a nice sandwich for lunch and golfing with friends and family — it just doesn’t get better than that,” added Bob Nelson.
While the weather got hot and steamy, the scores were very low this year.
Nate Munkel, Brian Cox, Dave Afdem and Mike Pasquriello shot an amazing 55, 17 under par and four strokes better than the Jim Christianson and Jim Rolbiecki teams at 59.
The Kockelman team had a 61 to take fourth place honors. Andrea Christiansen’s team and Harlen Ulrich’s team had 62’s.

Sixteen teams expected to be the best (four from each division), squared off in the Pacesetters Sweet 16 girls‘ Basketball Tournament at St. Ben’s at St. Cloud last weekend and Minneota’s varsity squad came away with a 2-2 record against some of the state’s best teams.
“We looked good running the floor,” said Assistant Coach Dale Kockelman.
“When you get the ball to Kelsey Hennen you get up and down the court in a hurry,” Kockelman said about Minneota’s point guard.
The Vikings were among four Division 1A schools, including Sebeka, Goodhue and Barnum.
