Boys golf: Reaching low numbers early
With high expectations entering last season, Rosemount boys golf coach Greg Gamache admits to a slow start by the Irish.
Once the golfers started to reach their potential, Rosemount finished strong. Yet, even during the run to the section meet, the Irish didn't shoot below a 310. In the section meet, they finished with a 303.
The first time out this season, Rosemount was under 310.
The Irish shot a combined 308 last week at Emerald Greens to place first out of three teams. Faribault finished with a 319 and New Prague scored a 329.
"Overall a great start," Gamache said.
Sam Reber came out strong with a 75. Eric Frahm and Tony Lorence each shot a 77. John Erlandson carded a 79 to round out the scoring.
"Tony Lorence and John Erlandson were both pleasant surprises and Reber and Frahm were solid as usual," Gamache said.
As pleased as Gamache was for the first meet of the year, he cautioned that there will be tougher meets ahead.
"We were on our home course and it wasn't the pressure of a conference match or an 18-team event," Gamache said.
Charlie Frahm finished with an 81 in just his second varsity match.
Alex Speer had an 85. Josh Doyle scored an 87 and Christian Kittleson finished with an 88.
The Irish complete a busy week today with a match at the Legacy golf course, hosted by Shattuck-St. Mary's. Rosemount also competed at River Oaks on Tuesday, and then split for a pair of matches on Tuesday at the Wilds golf course and Bunker Hills golf course.
