RAPID CITY --- The South Dakota School of Mines men’s and women’s golf teams returned from a trip to North Dakota where they competed in the Jamestown Jimmies’ Invitational at the Jamestown Country Club this past Sunday and Monday.
On the men’s side, it was Minot State that carded the lowest score, shooting a two-day team total of 604, with Dickson State a close second at 619. Jamestown College secured third place with 651 strokes while the Hardrockers settled for fourth with a 663.
Individually, Minot’s Justin Alberle won medalist honors with a 36-hole score of 146, followed by teammate Jordan Kelly who put up a 148.
Hardrocker Brandon Eisenbraun cracked the Top 10 for the first time this season, coming in with a 75 after Day 1, followed by an 81 on the second day for a total of 156, which netted him a tie for seventh place in the tournament. Teammate Same Hermanson shot a 157 (80-77), which also earned him a spot in the Top 10, tying for ninth.
“They each had one good day where shot in the 70’s,” said Hardrocker head coach Eric Glenn. “They needed to figure out a way to put two good days together.”
Looking at the DAC standings, Eisenbraun moved into 10th place with 22.5 points, while Hermanson is back in 11th with 22 points. To advance to the Region III tournament, an individual has to finish in the Top 10 of the conference standings and Glenn said that both have the potential to do so.
The other Hardrocker scores from the tournament had Bryce Taylor firing a 184 (98-86) and Ricky Clausen ending with a 166 (82-84).
“We have a very young group,” Glenn said. “They are all freshmen and sophomores out there.”
On the women’s side, Dickinson State tallied the lowest team score for the second week in a row with 705 strokes with Black Hills State again taking second with a 750. Jamestown carded a 764 for third, Minot State was fourth with 780 and the Lady Hardrockers secured fifth with 894.
Individually, Blue Hawk Megan Fisher is establishing herself as an early Dakota Athletic Conference favorite, shooting the lowest score, also for the second-straight week, posting a 154 while Yellow Jacket Anne Langdell applied pressure for second place with a 169.
The Hardrockers’ lowest round came from Kajada Stevens, who shot 204 (100-104) over the two days. Teammate Ayla Brausen carded a 222 (109-113), Stephanie Leber had a 229 (110-119) and Jodi Kaup rounded out the tournament with a 239 (115-124).
“Every girl we had out there this weekend had a personal best score on the first day,” Glenn said. “We have to give Lisa Steever (assistant coach) a lot of the credit. She has been doing a good job working with all the girls. She is our swing coach.”
The Hardrockers, along with the rest of the DAC will finish up the fall portion of the season this weekend (Sept. 23-24) with their third trip to North Dakota in three weeks, competing in the Minot State Invite at the Souris Valley Golf Course and the Minot Country Club.
