COOK- For North Woods girls golfer Tori Olson, the word home could refer to a couple of things in her life on the links. Home could be the Vermilion Fairways course in Cook, or it could also be a spot in the top tier of tournament leaderboards, where Olson seems to have lived most of the short season.
Olson was doubly at home last week as the Grizzlies hosted an East Range Conference meet at Vermilion Ridge, and she was again almost at the top of the heap when the tourney was finished. She and International Falls’ Kelby Anderson were even through the first six holes, but Olson picked up a pair of bogeys going in while Anderson finished clean for a two-stroke win. Runner-up Olson’s 41 was a stroke better than third-place finisher Samantha Doherty of Mesabi East.
Madison Dantes was the next lowest scorer for North Woods, carding a 55 and tied for 14th.
Talise Goodsky, Brynn Chosa, Aleah Bangs, Carsyn Burnett and Sophie Bangs also teed it up for North Woods, with the team finishing fourth in the five-team event with a total of 229.
The combined Ely/Northeast Range team took home the team title, led by Abby Koivisto’s fifth-place finish with a round of 48. Teammate Maizy Sunblad was two strokes back in sixth, and Danica Sunblad placed eighth with a 51. Carena DeBeltz shot a 55, and Cylvia DeBeltz, a 57.
