Boys golf

Class A meet suspended: The first round of the North Dakota Class A State Boys Golf Tournament was scheduled to be played at Hawktree Golf Club on Tuesday. The weather didn’t cooperate.

No players completed more than a handful of holes before the delays.

After several hours of delays and no end to the storms imminent, at 2:30 p.m., players, coaches, and fans were told to leave the golf course and that they would reassess the situation at 5:30 p.m. At that time, the weather had not improved and the first day was officially suspended.

The tournament is still scheduled for a full 36 holes. Round 1 will resume at 7:15 a.m. Wednesday. Round 2 will begin a minimum of 30 minutes after the conclusion of the first round with a tentative start time of 12:30-12:45 p.m.
