The Bemidji High girls golf team went outdoors for the first time Monday and paid the price.

Opening at the long, nationally ranked Hazeltine Golf Course, Bemidji finished eighth in a nine team field.

Lakeville North won the meet with a 371. Edina was six strokes back in second with Grand Rapids at 389 and Minnetonka 399 the only other teams to break 400.

Bemidji ended at 438 besting host Chaska which trailed the field at 480.

Aubri Nelson of Edina won medalist honors with a fine nine over par 81.

Kelsey Bretschneider paced Bemidji at 107 with Katie Reise 108,, Shelby Sauer 111 and Lisa Holtman and Katelyn Tingelstad 112. Only one of the 112's counted toward the team total.

Lynn Arndt ended at 124.

Bemidji showed the lack of outdoor practice. "Our chipping and putting were our two worst shots," said Coach Jeff Nelson. "These are parts of the game that should improve rapidly once we get a chance to practice on the golf course."

The same six will open Friday when Bemidji hosts its Invitational at the Country Club. At least 18 teams are expected with Perham the only one to withdraw.

The BTCC course opened for play Monday .
