The Tyler Tribute, Thursday, August 29, 2002 - Page Women's Tourney Winners... The Ladies Golf Tournament was held last Wednesday at the Tyler Golf Course. The winners of the three flights are pictured above. Left to right, they are: Sonja Lund - Championship Flight, Caroline Heidebrink - First Flight, Jean CarT - Third Flight. De- tails of the tournament are below in Jim Kopers Short Shots col- umn. K0pe's Short Shots by JIM KOPEL Ron Ries Captures Local Men's Golf Tourn. by Jim Kopel Ron Ries, in a highly contested battle, won the men's local golf tournament this past Sunday. Af- ter his score of 76 on Thursday, Ron came back with an outstand- ing round of 74 to win the champi- onship by one stroke over first round leader Steve Thomsen and Matt Kerkaert. Both of these golf- ers shot a 151 for the tournament. Sunday's golf was very exciting as every hole seemed to produce a new leader. Kerkaert finished in second place on a tiebreaker while Craig Petersen took home fourth place honors. Craig finished with a 156 for 36 holes. AI Van Eck, with his pizza juices flowing, captured the first flight with a fine round of 80. Ron Jacobson took home second place with an 81. Leon Sorensen, with an 82, nailed third place. Jason Maxwell won the second flight with an 88. Jim Franson and Eidie Nielsen finished second and third, respectively, with scores of 89 and 90. Lyle Hanson, shooting some of Men's Club Champion, Ron Ries. his best golf of the year, handled the third flight over Trent Hess by shooting a 94. Trent finished a close second with a 95. Ray Riley won the handicap championship by shooting a great 74 for 18 holes on Sunday. Ray had the best nine holes of the tourna- ment by shooting a two under par 34 on the front nine. His net score was a 65. AI Van Eck was a solid second. Ai had a net 66 for his 18 holes on Sunday. A total of 33 golfers enjoyed a beautiful day of golf. The course, with the recent rains, was in great shape. A big "thank you" is der for the grounds crew clubhouse help. Congratl all the golfers for tournament. The winners, cially our men's hardworking Ron Ries, special round of praise. guys! i Flight winners for the Men's Tourney were, left to ri Ries - Championship, AI Van Eck - First Flight, Jason Second Flight, Ray Riley - Handicap Champion. Not Hanson - Third Flight. Knights Win First Volleyball Sonja Lund Prevails Match Of The Season - In Five Games After a summer of some great weather for Ladies Day on Tues- day, the local ladies tournament last Tuesday ran into some nasty weather. Thunder, lightning, some rain and the threat of more rain caused anxious moments for the gals as they tried to complete their rounds. The championship flight finally completed their 18 holes and Sonja Lund was crowned cham- pion. Sonja shot a very solid 82. Sharon Hanson finished second with an 85, which included a 39 on the back nine. Kathy McLane had a 89 for third place. As far as our records will take us, this is the 15th time Sonja has won the local ladies tournament. There were two other flights for the ladies. Because of the weather, the ladies decided to only play nine holes of golf. Caroline Heidebrink won the first flight with a 49. Joyce Meyer and Larraine Morehouse fin- ished second and third with a 50 and 52. Jean CarT handled the sec- ond flight with a 56, while FIo Beck and Jane Jaspersen followed with a 60 and 62 for second and third place. We congratulate all the golf- ers for being patient and smart in regards to the weather. The men's local tournament started on Thursday with the cham- pionship flight playing their first 18 holes. Thirteen golfers teed it up in rather wet weather conditions. Af- ter 18 holes of golf, defending champion Steve Thomsen is lead- ing with a fine round of 75. Last year's runnerup is only one stroke back after a pair of 38's for a 76. That would be hardworking Ron Ries. Matt Kerkaert and Craig Petersen both shot 77 and are defi- nitely lurking. Matt had a 35 on the back nine for the best nine holes of the day. Wayne Halsne, Kim Christensen and Kelly Knudsen all shot 83. They will need to improve somewhat on Sunday to catch the leaders. On Sunday another 18 holes will be played by the cham- pionship flight, and the other flights will play 18 holes. Those results are elsewhere in this newspaper. Last week I reported my find- ing on the meaning of the word "golf." A gentleman told me a hu- morous meaning on how our game might have got its name. After a frustrating round it was the only four letter word left in the dictio- nary to describe the round. Until next week, stay out of the wet areas. The RTR Knights started offthe 2002 volleyball season in fine form last week as they downed the YME Sting in five games on Thursday night. The Knights won the match in Granite Falls with games of 15-12, 8-15, 15-8, 13-15, 15-8, taking every other game. After winning the first and third games, the Knights and Sting were tied 8-8 in the fifth and final game - and tied two games to two. RTR got two service aces and a set assist from Heidi Thooft and scored the final seven points of that final game. The Knights also got kills by Kayla Thooft and Crystal Keifer in that end run, to keep the momentum going. Keifer was 24 for 27 serving and had 14 kills in the match. Coach Neil Witte was pleased with the way the team hung in for the two hour match and how they kept momentum going to get the non-conference win. Heidi Thooft was 15 for 19 serving and had five aces. The Knights won the first game in a 15-12 battle. Then YME won a game 15-8 followed by RTR win- ning by the same score, 15-8. Game four was a real battle, with long rallies and lots of good defense by both teams. But YME prevailed, 15-13. The firstl half of the last game was also tight, getting to that 8-8 tie before RTR took over. Witte said the long match was good for the team, and showed they could stay in a five game match. Next up for the Knights was a Tuesday night home game against an always tough Pipestone-Jasper squad. Then on Thursday the Knights travel to Edgerton.
