OKOBOJI - The Estherville Lincoln Central Boys Golf team put together four good scores to finish fourth at the Lakes Conference Tournament on Monday.

The conference favorite, Spirit Lake, swept the medalist honors and had three all-conference place winners as they won the league title with a 305.

Emmetsburg finished second with 313 followed by Spencer with 322 and ELC with 329-one stroke ahead of Western Christian. Storm Lake finished sixth with 334 followed by LeMars with 363 and Cherokee with 384.

ELC's top four scores were consistent. Corey Reeves led the way with an 81 while Jack Brashear and Tucker Milburn each shot an 82 and Chris Seylar shot an 84.

Non-counting scores were a 99 by Hunter Gifford and a 103 by Clay Tredway.

A score of 78 was needed to earn all-conference honors.

"I would've loved to have one or two kids get all-conference," said ELC coach Dave Van Roekel. "But the fact that they hung in there all day-it was an extreme team effort. The fact that they finished fourth as a team shows how tough they are and I'm really proud of them."

Three Spirit Lake players earned all-conference honors led by individual champion and meet medalist Corey Potter, who shot a 70. Teammate Zach Skopec finished as runner-up medalist with a 73 while Trevor Calwell also earned all-conference honors with a 77. The Indians fourth score was an 85 by Max Kruse.

ELC and Spirit Lake both travel to the Spencer Country Club for the Class 3A Sectional meet on Friday. Tee off time is 9:30 a.m.
