Leaving home to represent your town and school is a big honor that athletes welcome. The opportunity can bring the best out of players, but no matter what, the support of their community and loved ones is always waiting for them.

Dickinson High School traveled to Jamestown to compete in the annual East/West Classic Golf Invitational. Alongside them were 15 other schools around the state all competing for top spots. With the untimely cold weather and 16 mph winds, it made it that much more of a challenge.

The first day of tee-off was at 8 a.m. Central time on Friday. The six Dickinson players worked together and against the elements to ultimately place around mid-table performance. The two highest scores came from Jack Homiston and Josh Hood, who both tied a scoring card of an 83 on the first day, placing them at 26 and 27. This was Hood’s best score so far in the season. Evan Groll and Grant Bittner had combined score of 85, while Jace Elkin fought for a respectable 90 for both day one and day two.

Kyller Hughes carded a 105 and Evan Lubken scored a 100. Though they ranked the lowest on the team for day one, they only used that as their motivation for the second day when they came back and kept the number of shots below 100. Hughes scored an 88 — 17 strokes less the day before and Lubken a 96.

Day two also held a better score for Homiston, pulling off an upright 77 scorecard — his best so far in the season — with a total score of 160. Hood fell to 99 in day two; Groll and Bittner also went below to a 93.


The total team score (341-348--689) placed them sixth on the final table, only 11 points away from taking fifth from North Fargo while being 15 points ahead from seventh.

Final team results are as followed:

1. Fargo Davies (611), 2. Minot (633), 3. West Fargo Sheyenne (638), 4. Bismarck Century (639), 5 Fargo North (679), 6. Dickinson (689), 7. St. Mary's (703), 8. Wahpeton (713), 9.
