A golf tournament that was slated to pair the top teams in the state in Class 3A golf from the year before was played in Ames April 30.
The only team missing from the top six squads in the 2012 boys’ state field were the Decorah Vikings, who were replaced by the Grinnell Tigers.
Decorah won the 2012 Class 3A State Championship.
The strong contingent of varsity boys’ teams faced the elements as well as the course. Winds were gusting to 30 miles per hour for the meet.
