Senior Michael Uhas and freshman Mitch Krebsbach competed at the Boys’ AA State Golf Tournament June 12 and 13 at Ridges at Sand Creek Golf Course in Jordan.
Uhas fired a 74 on Day 1, followed by a 76 on Day 2, finishing in a tie for 18th out of the 88 players in the event. This was the second best finish by a White Hawk since the tournament moved to three classes in 2008. 2018 marked Uhas’s second consecutive season qualifying for the state tournament. He improved 11 shots from his total last year where he finished in a tie for 59th. The tournament was the exclamation mark Uhas was looking to put on his successful six-year career playing golf at the varsity level for the White Hawks.
Krebsbach fired back-to-back 76s in his first appearance at the state tournament, finishing in a tie for 27th out of 88. His two-day total of 152 was fifth best of all freshmen competing in the tournament. Arguably the highlight of the entire tournament came when Krebsbach had a hole-in-one on number 15 during his second round. He aced the 110 yard hole in a rare feat, causing a huge “roar” from the crowd on hand. The state tournament marked Krebsbach’s best 36-hole total of the season, ending his season on a high note.
This was the first time in school history Mound Westonka has had two individuals in the state tournament in the same season. Both represented the team and entire community with excellence, both in their play and how they handled themselves on the course.
