The Humboldt High boys' golf team opened post-season tournament play in strong fashion Friday (May 16) by winning the Class 3A Sectional tournament at Storm Lake. Humboldt won the team title with a 330 score, outdistancing runner-up Spencer which shot 339. The two schools advance to a district at Carroll on Friday, May 23, where they'll face the top three teams from the Atlantic sectional, which include Atlantic (302), Harlan (303) and Creston (305) to determine a berth in the state tournament May 30-31 in Ames.

Christian Birdsell shot a two-round total of 76 to lead the Wildcats and earn meet medalist honors. Casey Kayser shot an 80 to place fifth overall. Jaxon Heinz carded 86, Austen Gargano 88, Andy Nelson 89 and Brenden Schnell 93.
