Despite playing at their home course, the Sauk Prairie High School boys golf team dropped down in the conference standings after the second Badger North Conference mini-meet of the year.
The Eagles tallied 375 strokes over 18 holes Tuesday at Lake Wisconsin Country Club in Prairie du Sac. Sauk Prairie took last out of eight teams, a week after using 356 strokes to place fourth in the opening meet of the year April 9 in Mount Horeb.
Waunakee won the first two mini-meets to take control in the Badger North standings.
Jake Vieth fired the lowest score of Sauk Prairie’s five individuals. The senior shot an 85, including a back-nine 40, on the par-70 course to finish with one birdie and seven pars.
Spencer Breunig shot a 48 on the front nine and a 44 on the back nine to shoot a 92 for the Eagles. Aaron Frey used a back-nine 45 to shoot a 97, while Spencer Lacour shot a 101 and Tyler Ramaker shot a 104.
Beaver Dam’s Zak Kulka shot an even-par 70 to win individual medalist honors, beating out Waunakee’s Joe Guerrera (74), Mount Horeb’s Kasen Fager (76), Waunakee’s Sean Murphy (77) and Baraboo’s Dane Hinz (77).
Sauk Prairie will host another meet on Monday, when 11 teams meet at Lake Wisconsin Country Club for an invitational. The next Badger North mini-meet will be held April 24 at Old Hickory Golf Club in Beaver Dam.
