Boys golf: Irish still going strong
Rosemount's boys golf team continued its improved play during the past week, winning a three-team event and finishing ninth out of 17 in another competition.
On Saturday, the Irish scored a team total of 333 at Fountain Valley, beating Shakopee (344) and Farmington (360).
Colin Anderson was the meet medalist, shooting a 79 for Rosemount. Connor Johnson shot an 80, Sam Reber had an 84 and Eric Frahm had an 89.
On Monday, the Irish finished ninth out of 17 teams at the Don and Sheila Shatzer Invitational at Hastings Country Club.
Hill-Murray took first place with a 309, followed by Hastings with a 317 and Apple Valley with a 317. The Irish finished with a team score of 338, two ahead of Robbinsdale Armstrong.
"I was happy with it," Irish coach Dick Forsberg said. "We had a unique scoring plan. We went 83, 84, 85, 86, 87, 88. I've never had that happen before."
While the consecutive scores were unique, it was a sign of the positives for the Irish.
"I guess that has been our thing all year long," Forsberg said. "We are consistent and being that we are a young team, hopefully we can all get better and build on that for next year. We would like to peak at tournament time. We have had some pretty good outings recently."
Anderson led the Irish with an 83, followed by Frahm with an 84, Reber with an 85, and Johnson with an 86.
