OSAKIS — The Osakis boys and girls golf teams wrapped up their seasons on June 26 with a season-ending banquet where Averyonna Graff and Drew Imdieke were named the most outstanding golfers for their teams.

Imdieke and Chase Triebenbach were both sophomores who earned a spot on the all-conference team in 2022. Imdieke had a season average of 40.4 on nine-hole events with a best of 38. He had an 81.6 average in 18-hole events with a season-best of 76.

Imdieke advanced to day two of the section meet and finished tied for 16th with a two-day score of 168.

Osakis trailed by nine in the first half against Paynesville but clawed back to lead by two at halftime and it won the game 48-44.

Triebenbach had a season average of 40.2 in 9-hole meets with a season-best of 38. He had a season average of 83.9 in 18-hole meets with a best of 82. Triebenbach also advanced to day two of the section meet and tied with Imdieke for 16th with a 168.

Senior Aaron Nack rounded out the boys’ team award winners by being named the most improved. Nack had an average of 43.6 with a season-best round of 40 in nine-hole events. His season-best over 18 holes was an 86 as he finished with a season average of 90.3.


Graff, a sophomore, led a very young Osakis girls team in the 2022 season. She had a season-best round of 52 in nine-hole meets with a season average of 62. Her best 18-hole round came at the section meet where she shot a 114.

This past spring season was mostly about getting newcomers to golf accustomed to playing the sport competitively for the Osakis girls.

“The rest of our team was all brand new golfers this year,” head coach Chris Grove said of the players outside of Graff. “It is hard to get an accurate scoring average as we played the circle 10 rule for scoring in most cases. It was fun to see the improvement throughout the season and see how many holes they did not have to use the circle 10 rule by the end.”
