The girls as a team did well too, finishing in a close second place, five strokes out of the top spot.
“That’s less than a stroke per golfer,” head coach Todd Frie said.
The boys, playing in Heart River on the same day, took fifth overall out of 10 teams participating. They were fours strokes behind fourth and 16 behind third place.
Four of the five golfers shot under 100, which is a first for the team this year.
“To have four guys under 100, that’s the first time that’s happened this year,” Frie said. “So that was a very good accomplishment for us.”
The fifth golfer was close too, shooting over 100 by just four strokes.
“Overall we played pretty well as a team,” Frie said. “A lot of guys said they shot better.”
Frie said his team’s goal is to be one of the top teams in the region this season, and they’re close.
“Our goal is to be top three in the region, and we’re right on the cusp of that,” he said. “We’re seeing that with these close finishes.”
