The Bemidji High boys golf team gets its first shot at the section tournament site when it travels to Sauk Centre today to play the Greystone Invitational.

The boys tennis team heads to Moorhead for the Spuds Invitational while the girls golfers complete a two day weekend at the Grand Rapids tournament at Sugar Brooke.

The golfers are coming off a poor showing at The Pines Wednesday when they finished 16 in a 20-team field. Only one golfer broke 85 that day with the last three scorers ranging as high as 94.

Bemidji finished sixth in a 12-team field at Greystone last year in a rain shortened meet determined on strokes over par. Bemidji was a plus 12 when play was halted.

Eric Niskanen's forces will be back at full strength today and will go with Chris Curb, Ben Moen, Greg Larson, Tanner Niskanen, Josh Faecke and either Matt Nistler or Mike Arnold.

Curb has been in the 70's in all three starts while Niskanen has bettered 80 in his two meets. He missed The Pines Invitational Wednesday.

Larson, Moen and Faecke have all had one round in the 70's though those came in the opener over the Detroit Lakes par 64 executive course.

The team has a busy week ahead playing at the Detroit Lakes Invitational Tuesday, Deacons Lodge Invitational at Nisswa Wednesday and the Staples Invitational at The Vintage Saturday.

Net team short

The tennis team, which was beaten 6-1 Thursday at Thief River, will have a revamped lineup today at Moorhead with two regulars missing to play in an AAU basketball tournament.

Making up the team today will be Ben Holter, Logan Hanrahan, Chris Hays and Aaron Johnson in singles. The doubles teams will be Matt Thompson with Aaron Carter, Matt Lee with Brian Baldrati and Wes Rogers with Josh Pierce.

East Grand, Thief River, Detroit Lakes, Brainerd, Fergus Falls and Park Rapids will complete the field with Bemidji and Moorhead.
