ONAMIA -- Joe Sauer and Melanie Wilson came away from the Central Lakes College golf invitational with medalist honors Monday at Izaty's Yacht and Golf Club.
Sauer shot a two-day total of 145 to help the CLC white team to a first-place finish with 596 strokes. Eric Rowbottom was second, Justin Heitkamp third and Josh Kuha fourth for CLC.
"I was very impressed with our guys," said CLC coach Jim Russell. "They played very well. It's a two-day tournament so it's great practice for state and region.
"With Brian (Bahe) and Justin (Heitkamp) shooting as well as they did, it's nice to be that deep."
Wilson shot a two-day total of 171 and Becky Schornack was second with a 177.
"Melanie has won every meet she's played in," Russell said. "She's been pretty solid, shooting in the low 80s. She's going to keep working on her game and shoot in the 70s by the end of this year.
"Becky is coming around. We've worked on her swing so she's going to have her ups and downs, but as soon as she figures that out, she will be good."
All women's teams were incomplete as no one fielded a complete team.
