Ehlers Advances to State

At the two-day State Tournament held June 6 and 7, Ehlers finished 17th overall out of a field of over 50 golfers in Division III. After a rough start and a score of 91 on a challenging University Ridge golf course, Ehlers righted the ship and shot a 79 the second-day. Landon Vinger of Kickapoo High School won the Division III individual with scores of 78 and 73.
