Lauren Bowyer of Minneota shot a 48 on a miserable day for gold.

Bowyer 2nd, Viking boys 3rd in home meet

On a frigid and windy day, Lauren Bowyer tied Shae Oleson of Russell-Tyler-Ruthton for low score, but lost out on a tiebreaker for medalist in the Camden Conference girls' meet Friday art Countryside Golf Course in Minneota.
Only two girls' teams had full squads for the conference meet. Canby shot a 185 and RTR a 243. Minneota has not had a complete squad for two years.
"The cold and windy weather affected my play of strategy quite a bit," said Bowyer, who has signed a national letter of intent to play for Minnesota-Crookston next year. "I had a few holes where I was overcompensating and dropping my shoulder, which led me to have some extra stokes."
In the boys' event, Cole Myhre led Minneola with a 44 for sixth place overall, followed closely by teammates Jackson Esping in seventh with a 45 and Alex DePestel eighth with a 46.
Minneota finished third with a 182 score. Lakeview placed first with a 173 and Yellow Medicine East was second with a 177.
