MILBANK – Aberdeen Roncalli won another Northeast Conference Golf Tournament championship at Whetstone Creek Golf Course on Tuesday.

The Cavaliers were led by medalist Mason Carrels and runner-up Finn Anderson. Roncalli finished with a team score of 337, 40 strokes better than Groton.

The victory marked the third straight year that Roncalli has won the NEC team title.

“It’s been kind of fun to get those,” said Roncalli coach Jon Murdy. “Now, we just have to look forward to regions.”

Carrels finished with a 77, two strokes better than Anderson.

“Mason and Finn both played well today for us,” Murdy said.

Jesse Hernandez was sixth with an 86, Andrew Gerlach 10th with a 95, and Sawyer Henrich 13th with a 98.

Groton’s Brevin Fliehs was third with an 81. Rounding out the top five were Jonathan DeBoer of Milbank Area in fourth with an 82, and Riley Steen of Sisseton, fifth with an 84.

Roncalli now competes in the Huron Invitational on Friday. The meet will feature teams from two classes.

“There will be some good AA schools,” Murdy said.

He thinks that fellow Class A schools Tea Area and Vermillion will also be at the tourney.

“It will be a good test to see a team score against them,” Murdy said, “and see how we match up.”

Team Points: Aberdeen Roncalli 337, Groton 377, Milbank Area 388, Redfield 438. Incomplete: Sisseton and Tiospa Zina.
