Superior's Burger ties for first at Grand Rapids Invite
Superior High School’s Daniel Burger tied for medalist honors at Tuesday’s Grand Rapids Invitational at the Pokegama Golf Course.
Burger carded a 73, along with Honza Cervenka of Grand Rapids. Alex Odegaard, also of Grand Rapids, finished third with a 74.
“Danny played a great round of golf,” SHS coach Dan Schulz said. “I was impressed with his discipline on the course, he only found himself out of position a couple time and when he was he took his medicine and gave himself an opportunity to make par.”
Also for Superior, Spencer Sitek finished in 12th with a 78. Paxton Paine was 50th at 90; Adam Strobel was 52nd with a 91; Lukas Gall carded a 94 for 58th place and Max Dahl cam ein 64th place with a 98.
“Spencer, our senior captain, has accomplished so much in high school golf, and now he is proving to be a real leader and motivator for the underclassmen,” Schulz said. “Spencer didn’t make any birdie putts at Grand Rapids, and he missed a couple putts for par that I know he’d like to have back. But all things considered, 78 is a respectable score at Pokegema.”
As a team, Superior finished tied for seventh place with a 332. Grand Rapids won the team title with a 302.
The Spartans host a Lake Superior Conference meet at noon today at the Nemadji Golf Course and will golf in the Virginia Invitational at 10 a.m. Friday.
