A new format meant double the fun for the participants at the Antelope County News Golf and Glow Ball Tournaments on Friday.
More than 30 teams signed up for the two tournaments, with one tournament being held during the daylight and a second, glow ball tournament, going on at night. Members of the area schools were on hand to help run the tournament, cook hot dogs and brats and run various contests.
The event was sponsored by Stealth Broadband, Thriftway Market, Elgin Insurance Mart, Blackburn Manufacturing, Bank of Elgin, Faith Regional Physicians Services, TJ's Market, Wilbur-Ellis and Nielsen Insurance.
During the daytime tournament, the team of Randy Eisenhauer, Greg Wemhoff, Trent Ostransky and Todd Heithoff took top honors with a score of 26. Doug Hartman, Trey Rossman, Kellen Rossman and Alex Johnson teamed up to take second with a 29 and winning the tie-breaker. Third place went to the team of Tanner Knutson, Aaron Rice, Holden Wetzler and Eric Schiltmeyer with a 29.
The glow ball tournament was won by the team of Tyson Belitz, Alex Kerkman, Grant White and Chris Bentley with a score of 28. Eisenhauer, Wemhoff, Ostransky and Heithoff took second with a 29 and Greg Henn, Jennifer Henn, Justin Reestman and Drew Schindler took third in 32 with a tie-breaker win over Knutson's squad.
The funds raised will be divided between the athletic programs for the Antelope County School schools.
