Boys golf review: Strong start led to frustrating ending
When the Rosemount boys golf team stormed to a strong start this season, coach Greg Gamache started to wonder what his team would be capable of this year.
The Irish came in with reasonable expectations with a relatively young squad. But the early-season play raised those expectations.
After a late-season swoon, Rosemount was sitting in about the spot Gamache envisioned at the start.
"Ultimately we ended up how we kind of thought we were," Gamache said. "The beginning of the season, we just played so well I think we got jaded and it slanted our view of how we thought we were going to do."
The Irish ended up 10th in the ultra-competitive Lake Conference. They shot a 397 on the first day of the section meet at Keller golf course and failed to advance to the second day.
Junior Sam Reber finished as an all-conference performer with a 75.7 scoring average in conference matches. Senior Eric Frahm finished with a 79.225 average to earn all-conference honorable mention.
Reber finished with a 77.6 average for the season and was the team's MVP winner. Frahm was second on the team with an 81.6.
Juniors John Erlandson and Charlie Frahm and sophomore Josh Doyle might have been the biggest surprises. Erlandson and Charlie Frahm were the Most Improved Player award winners and Doyle earned the Hardest Worker award.
Erlandson averaged 83.4, with Charlie Frahm coming in with an 85.1 and Doyle adding an 86.6 average.
"I think the future is pretty bright," Gamache said.
