Minnewaska's Sam Falk battled Danielle Elam through a one-hole playoff to grab the fourth spot in the Section 3AA-Northeast girls' golf meet in Benson as the Lakers cruised to the title by 39 strokes.
Falk birdied the 10th hole to edge out Elam, who carded a par, giving the Lakers the top four spots in the event as they advanced to the Section 3AA tournament held yesterday, Thursday at Eagle Creek Golf Club in Willmar.
Seniors Allie Ostrander and Sarah Roering finished one-two as Ostrander fired a even-par 72 and Roering finished three strokes back.
Jenna Janu finished third with an 87 and Falk came in at 88. Brianna Janu shot a 91 and Alexis Guggisberg rounded out the squad with a 91.
Minnewaska advanced to yesterday's section final round, along with Jackson County Central from Section 3AA-Southeast, Benson/KMS from 3AA-Northwest and Marshall of 3AA-Southwest.
