Olson and Olson take top spots in golf section meet

North Woods boys team, individual girls headed to state

Posted

A brother and sister from the North Woods School dominated the Section 7A golf finals on Wednesday and Thursday, and are both headed to state.

Senior Tate Olson and his sister, sophomore Nicole Olson, each took first in the sectional contest held in Virginia. Tate thoroughly dominated the field, scoring a combined 139 in the two days of play, besting the second place finisher by an astonishing 17 strokes. His performance, combined with exceptionally strong outings by teammates Sam Frazee (160), Ian Olson (166), Chase Kleppe (173), Davis Kleppe (175), and Blake Scofield (177), left the Grizzlies boys golf team at the top of the field and headed for state. The Grizzlies' team score of 638 topped the second-place team by 108 strokes. North Woods dominated the top spots in the competition, posting six of the top ten scores in the event.

Meanwhile, Nicole Olson tied for first in the event, with a combined two-day score of 169. Her teammate Kylie Parson tied for third with a score of 183, and will join Olson in state competition to be held June 12-13, at Pebble Creek Golf Course in Becker.
