DIXON—Nick Gustafson shot a 6-under-par 69 to take medalist honors at the Arrowhead Conference Preview on Friday at Dixon Country Club.

Reiber carded a 78 on Friday, followed by a 79 from freshman Joey Juergens, an 80 from sophomore Chad Hatch and an 83 by sophomore Mark Dockstader.
Gustafson shot 33 on the front to lead by three shots after nine holes and held off Black Hawk Gold’s Josh Bousman by one stroke.
Black Hawk Black shot 325 to edge Illinois Valley by a stroke for third place, and Sauk Valley shot 330 to finish fifth.
The Chargers’ next action is the Duane Chanay Invite at 1:45 p.m. Friday at Byron Hills Golf Course in Port Byron.
