Alden-Conger Knights participated in the girls 2A Section Tournament at the North Links Golf Course in North Mankato. The Knights started teeing off at 10 a.m. after some early morning showers, which eventually turned into a muggy day as the temperatures got into the mid-80s.

Emma Kleinschrodt finished fifth, Ella Riebe placed 10th, Kayla Halvorsen placed 21st, Ava Morrison placed 28th, Aubrielle Jacobs placed 32nd and Emelia Jacobs placed 35th individually after the first day of the sectional tournament.
