The Senior Captains for the Simley Boys Golf team decided in no particular order that with the hectic golf schedule recently they needed respectively to work, go fishing, or just sleep in. That left Junior Captain Ben Borchard to to lead a youthful Spartan Linksters team to the Dakota County Invite at Emerald Greens on Saturday, May 12th, to see how they would fair against a wide variety of other golf teams. And they faired fairly well on a fair day finding fairway after fairway in the fair weather. Captain Borchard shot a wonderful four over par 77 which was matched by Freshman Zach Painter, both of whom had their putters working. Senior Kyle Roche was next in with an elite 83, which except for a couple tough holes would have matched the 77’s. Sophomore Zach Sayner rounded out the scoring for the Spartans who finished in a very respectable 4th place out of nine teams. Sophomore Alex Guggisberg and 8th Grader Josh Painter hit many good shots, but finished a few shots off the pace.
