Last year the Decorah boys golf team finished first in their conference and 5th at sectionals. Their final record was 14-22.

Graduating varsity seniors were Tristan Jostand, Tom Knoke, and Jerod Redenius. Top returners for the team are junior Jay Fjelstul who was all conference for the second time, and letter winners Nate Rolfs, Jackson Rolfs, and Jared Holthaus.

Promising newcomers include junior Blake Donlon, sophomores Baylor Bohr, Noland Jostand, Jackson Rollins, and freshmen Sam Jermier. The team needs to find the fifth and sixth golfer on varsity

Coach Rich Gaard shares their team strengths are four returning letter winners and being defending conference champs. "We look for a promising year as we are returning four lettermen from last year's conference championship team. With continued maturity and players stepping up to fill the needs of a balanced team, our team should be very competitive," said Coach Gaard.

On Monday, April 8th, the team will travel to a meet against Charles City as they begin their season.
