Christensen, Lundin, RHS and SFC Win State Golf Titles

YANKTON, VERMILLION, SD… Lance Christensen took a 1-shot lead into the final day at the State “A” golf tournament in Vermillion.

He went on to win by 5 shots over Keaton Nighbert of Madison and 6 shots over Carson Van Beek who helped his SF Christian Chargers to the team title by 13 shots.

In the “AA” at Hillcrest CC in Yankton, it was Jack Lundin’s day as he shot 77 in very tough scoring conditions and rallied to win medalist honors by 2 shots in what has been an incredible 2019 for the Roosevelt standout, winning the state junior championship and also the men’s stroke play tournament. His Riders also won a very close team competition by 2 shots over O’Gorman and Lincoln. Nash Stenberg of the Patriots tied for 2nd 2 shots back at 152 along with a pair of RC Stevens Raiders-Adam Salter and Ben Daane.
