West Central Area Boys Golf Season Recap and Awards

By Craig Olson - Barrett, MN

The West Central Area Boys Golf Team finished the season strong.  There were ten teams competing in the Quad County conference this year.  After finishing in 9th place during the first tournament, they moved up to 4th place twice and finished tied for 6th overall in the Quad County Conference.  

The Knights had a young and inexperienced team this year with only one returning golfer and several first year golfers.  The boys showed a lot of improvement in all three parts of the game (long game, short game, and mental game) as the season went on. 

Senior Kaden Spindler earnedAll-Conference by finishing in the top 15 in season scoring average.   Other schools competing in their conference were Border West, Underwood, Long Prairie/Browerville, Ashby, Ortonville, OTC, Pillager, Hillcrest and Rothsay. 

Spindler had the lowest scoring average with a 45.4, was voted team MVP and medaled three times taking 4th place in Graceville, 5th place in Wheaton, and 6th place in Long Prairie.   Sophomore Jacob Warde was second in scoring average with a 51.3 and was voted the team’s Shining Knight Award for the player with the best attitude and the best teammate. 

Freshmen Tate Christenson was next in scoring with a 54 average and was voted the Knights Rookie of the Year.  Tate was frequently in the top two or three on the team in scoring in most meets highlighted by a 95 at WCA’s home meet and a second nine 48 in Long Prairie. 

Sophomore Gage Staples was voted the Most Improved Player on the team. His scores started around 130 and were consistently close to 100 in the last few meets.  Rounding out the team were sophomores Declan Johnson, Jacob Bright, Jack Van Kempen, and Ian Wittbrodt who along with Staples all showed a lot of improvement throughout the year. 

Knight Coach Kraig Hunter said, “It was a fun year with so many new golfers willing to learn and improve.  Hopefully they will continue to build on this year and stay together since we had so many freshmen and sophomores.”
