The top 55 percent scorers of the golfers who competed at the Region 4 meet qualify for the Class A State Tournament, as do the top three teams.
Cole Conard and Lane Robb led the charge for the Wildcats, both posting scores of 88, good enough to place both in the top 10. Also placing in the top 55 percent for the Wildcats were Noah Zacher, who finished in 14th place at 90, and Blake Martinz, who was 16th place with a 92. The other Wildcat golfer to compete was Adam Baker, who finished with a 106.
As a team, the Wildcats finished in third place, with a score of 358, just behind second place Lead-Deadwood at 354. As it has done most of the season, St. Thomas More won the tournament, with a score of 344. More also had the tournament medalist once again in Jeron Laurenti, who posted a score of 79.
