A great day on the links results in three Jaguars' golfers advancing to the Class A State Tournament - the most ever for B-B-E in one season

Corey Tonn in action at the Sub-Section 5A-North meet on May 28; he placed 5th at the Section 5A meet today.

Senior Corey Tonn, junior Amy Knutson, and seventh grader Peyton Miller all advanced from the Section 5A meet today to the Class A state golf tournament.

Tonn is the first Jaguars' boys golfer to advance to state since 2005, when then-senior Steven Hurst went in the two-class format and finished 7th individually.

Also, for the third straight year, the Jaguars' girls golf team will be represented at the state tournament. In 2008, Megan Herickhoff and Whitney Bertram both competed at state; in 2009, Bertram went for the second time.

  • Top finishers for the Jaguars at the Section 5A tournament in Benson:
Corey Tonn carded an 80, good for 5th overall on the boys' side
Peyton Miller carded a 91, good for 4th overall on the girls' side
Amy Knutson carded a 95 - it avenges the "narrow miss" she endured as a freshmen, when she missed out on going to state by one stroke at the Section 5A meet in '08.

The 2010 Class A state golf tournament will take place at Pebble Creek Golf Course in Becker, MN, on Wednesday-Thursday, June 16-17. On both days, tee-off times are at 7:30am.
