The Alta-Aurelia golf teams were in action on Thursday afternoon against Prarie Valley.

Both the boys and girls teams were able to come away with a victory at the golf meet. For the boys golf team it was their penultimate match before the post season will start for the Warriors. In a close match, the boys teams came out with a 9- stroke win over the Prairie Valley team 167 to 176.

In the match, four of the Warrior golfers were able to card scores under 45, with only two scores that were carded being above 60. Although Prairie Valley had all six of their golfers card rounds in the mid to upper 40's, the strong play by the Warriors kept them ahead of the pace and secured the win.

Each school tied for the best round of the game with Josh McCormick of Alta-Aurelia carding a round best of 40 on the meet. Ethan Wiedrin of Prairie Valley also turned in a score card of 40.

Based off of individual hole results the medalist position went to Wiederin of Prairie Valley. The runner-up medalist award went to McCormick.

After a day of rest, Alta-Aurelia will be in action again on Saturday morning when they take on several area schools at Lake Creek. In what will be their final match of the year, before post-season tournaments start, the Warriors will put their best up in the Storm Lake Invitational tournament Saturday morning. Schools from all over the Twin Lakes Conference area will be competing for a chance to win the event. On Monday May, 5 the Warriors will compete in the Twin Lakes Conference meet which will also take place at Lake Creek Country Club.

After the Twin Lake Conference tournament the Warriors will have some time to prepare for the conference meet where they will have a chance to qualify golfers for the state meet at the end of the month.
