Rebrovich earns Cardinal Award for leadership
Sladek takes Alexandria’s MVP
The Alexandria boys golf team leaned on a lot of its talented young players this past spring, but veteran Grant Rebrovich played a big role on and off the course for a team that finished fifth at the Class AAA state tournament.
Rebrovich earned Alexandria’s Cardinal Award from the team’s postseason honors. The award goes to a player who shows leadership, hard work and sportsmanship. He finished his career in Alexandria on a high note by finishing tied for 21st at the state meet. Rebrovich shot a 78 in round two after shooting a 1-under 71 in the opening round.
Sophomore Braeden Sladek earned Alexandria’s MVP award after he led the team with a 72.4 average, and junior Drew Swedberg was named the Cardinals’ most improved player. Sladek culminated his season by leading Alexandria at the state tournament, shooting a 2-over par 146 (73, 73) to take 15th individually.
Jack Holtz, Bennett Olsen, Carver Larson and Ashton Sladek are all expected to be a bright part of this program’s future after they competed on the state-tournament team. All four shared the Cardinals’ Rookie of the Year Award with season averages at just over 79. Rebrovich and Swedberg posted nearly the same scoring averages on a team that could have a different player post a top-four team score on any given day.
Rebrovich, Braeden Sladek, Swedberg, Holtz and Olsen were All-Central Lakes Conference players this year, while Larson and Ashton Sladek finished as honorable-mention. Peter Sansted, Wyatt Cavers, Hunter Brunkow, Mason Gray, Mason Stennes, Brycen Berg and Andrew Johnson joined those athletes as letter winners for Alexandria.
