Both Ellsworth and Prescott lowered their 18-hole scores in pair of such meets last week.

Prescott's best showing came at the Bristol Invitational last Wednesday at Bristol Ridge Golf Course in Somerset. The Cardinals shot a 382 led by an 86 from Austin Johnson and an 88 by Vince Schute. Other scores were a 101 by Kyle Lubich, a 107 by Nick Helberg and a 112 by Blake Wuorenma.

Unity won the 20-team meet with a score of 320. Prescott tied for 11th and Ellsworth tied for 15th with a score of 401. Aaron Knutson had the Panthers' best score with an 89 followed by Joey Henning's 95, Sam Huppert 104, Zach Lofgren's 111 and Tyler Samuel's 114.

Maple Northwestern's Justin Elexson won the meet medalist award shooting a 75.

Prescott stayed under 400 at the Bloomer Invitational Friday, shooting a 394. Chute and Johnson again had the Redbirds best individual scores at 89 and 96 respectively. Helberg had a 104, Lubich 105 and Wuorenma 113.

The Veteran's Memorial Course has been kind to Ellsworth over the years and it was again. The Purple had its lowest 18-hole score of the season so far, a 369.

EHS had three scores lower than 100: Knutson 82, Henning 89, Lofgren 93 to go with a 105 for Huppert and a 106 for Samuel.

"The course is short and really plays well for our game," Ellsworth head coach Jack Radabaugh said. "And we can also say that we've seen a lot of steady improvement from our team since the start of the season. Hopefully this was big step for us to even better scores in the future."

Ellsworth finished 11th out of 19 schools while Prescott was 13th. Bloomer won its own meet with a score of 321. Cumberland's Travis Lehman won meet medalist honors shooting a 75.
