In their final competition on Fox Run Golf Course this season, the Yankton Bucks boys’ golf team had four golfers at par or better and seven golfers under 80 to sweep a boys’ golf dual with Lennox on Thursday.

Led by Jimmie Cunningham’s 3-under 69, the Yankton Bucks shot a 4-under 284 as a team. Gavin Haselhorst shot a 1-under 71. Austin Frick and Landon Moe each shot even-par 72 on the day.

The score was Yankton’s best team score since shooting a 282 at Brandon in 2005. Brandon is a par-71 course, meaning that score was 2-under.

Lennox, which finished at 337, was led by Dalton Plucker’s 79. Eli Cinco shot 83 for the Orioles.

Yankton’s second four were also victorious, scoring a 315 to beat out Lennox (407) for the JV win. Henry Homstad shot 76, and Simon Hacecky and Dawson Vellek each shot 79 to lead Yankton.

Also for the Bucks, Jerry Kosmatka shot 81, Jace Tramp shot 82, Caeden Ekroth carded an 88, Luke Abbott shot 95 and Jake Cunningham carded a 96.
