Tennis, hockey player turned golfer helps Lutherans win Big Northern.

Poplar Grove – Jake Goss won the boys’ golf titles at the Great Northern Conference for himself and the team.

“Jake made it so much easier for the rest of the team by winning six goals,” said Rockford Lutheran coach Kevin Flack.

Guse’s 2-under-par 70 Wednesday at Timber Pointe easily beat Rockford Christian freshman Gavin Hultman (76) and, most importantly, Byron Maison Brandt (77), a two-time Big Northern champ. This seven-stroke gap helped Byron top 322 over 326 even though Byron posted all four of his scores into the top seven.

“This goes too far,” Byron coach Andrew Schlubb said. “It’s usually the other way around. Our first guy usually scores this low.”
