Falk, Langseth lead Red Robin golfers at Great Northern meet
space
“It sure would be nice to catch a beautiful day,” lamented Antigo Coach Steve Fermanich. His talented golf team has had severe misfortune encountering weather conducive to playing even average conditions this year.

In a sentiment shared by the majority of spring sport coaches and athletic directors in Northern Wisconsin, the Robin golf team trudged through the course to tie for third place in Medford Monday afternoon.

In its second Great Northern Conference outing this season, Antigo earned 4.5 points by tying rival Northland Pines for third place at Black River Country Club, shooting 179. The Lakeland Thunderbirds took first with their collective nine-hole team score of 175, its second first place finish on the year.

The field was relatively close amongst all of the GNC participants, as Medford’s round of 177 awarded them second place and six conference points. Following the Robins and the Eagles were Rhinelander (191), Mosinee (193) and Tomahawk (194).

Course conditions were to be as expected in the dreary, somber overcast that has loomed over Wisconsin for the past two days. “It was a cold, wet and very windy day,” said Fermanich. “It really was tough for players to navigate the course. Water was standing everywhere and the best mudders won today.”

Zach Falk was back in action, coming off of an impressive weekend for the Robins. Shooting a nine-hole round of 42 strokes, Falk was tied for second place overall with three other golfers including Spenser Scholl (Medford), Curtis Geiger (Lakeland) and Brent Cook (Rhinelander). Chas Lehman of host Medford stole a solitary first place with a score of 40.

Connor Langseth also placed in the top ten, scoring a 43 in the company of two other players. Langseth birdied the second as did Falk, who also made birdie on the 8th hole.

The entire team finished below 50 strokes on the day, including Lindsey Berndt at 46, Jackson Charlesworth with 48 and Sam Brettingen with a round of 49.

“Zach played very well and so did Connor,” said Coach Fermanich afterwards. “(Brettingen) tried playing on his sprained ankle and it didn’t go very well for him. With him healthy, I believe we would have finished first today; but, with Bass Lake being the next leg on our schedule, maybe we can make up some ground.”

The Robins have been golfing relatively well despite adverse playing conditions. In two conference meets, teams are in the following point positions, with seven points awarded to each first place participant and downwards after: Lakeland (14), Antigo (10.5), Northland Pines (9.5), Medford (8), Rhinelander (6.5), Mosinee (5.5) and Tomahawk (2).

Antigo is next scheduled to play in an invitational at Ridgeway Golf Course in Neenah Thursday morning at 9:30 a.m.
