HURON — Huron senior Aiden Zavesky will cap his high school golf career at the Class AA State Meet, which is Monday and Tuesday at Brandon Golf Course.

It will be the second year in a row, that Zavesky will be the lone participant for the Tigers in the season-ending event.

“I expect Aiden to come into the state tournament ready to play two days of consistent golf,” Huron coach Kyle Johnson sadi. “If Aiden can go to Brandon and put two rounds in the high 70’s to low 80’s it would be a great tournament for him.”

Zavesky finished tied for 68th at last year’s tournament.

The Brandon Valley course will provide a challenge for this year’s field of golfers.

“If you start to hit the ball left and right off the tee you can get into a lot of tree trouble,” Johnson said. “It is also tough because the greens are smaller with steep slopes on them so chipping will play a key factor at the course as well.”

In order for Zavesky to shoot a low number, Johnson pointed to his tee shot on every hole as being a key.

“Being able to hit his spots off the tee shots and setting himself up to make the easy shot on his second,” Johnson said of the major factors in success for Zavesky. “With the smaller greens, ending up on the wrong side of the hole can quickly add 1 to 2 shots.”

Harrisburg is the defending Class AA champion. Pierre was second a year ago, followed by Watertown, O’Gorman and Mitchell.

Play will begin at 9 a.m. Both days.
