Boys golf: Sweetman, Doyle lead Irish during opening week
Rosemount Minnesota P.O. Box 192 / 312 Oak St. 55024

The Rosemount boys golf team started the season with a busy slate of meets last week, competing three times in a span of four days.

The young Irish opened by shooting a team score of 352 at the Park of Cottage Grove Invitational last Tuesday. They fell 15 1/2 to 8 1/2 in the first part of a home-and-home match play competition with Farmington at Fountain Valley Golf Course last Wednesday, and then closed out the week on a high note by placing fifth out of 16 teams with a round of 330 at the Shattuck St. Mary's Invitational.

"We have a relatively young team that is looking forward to competing in the South Suburban Conference this year," Rosemount coach Kyle Fredrickson said. "I am excited to see how they will progress throughout the season."

Jake Sweetman and Josh Doyle emerged to lead the Irish during the first week. Sweetman, a freshman, carded a team-best 18-hole round of 82 at Cottage Grove, while Doyle followed with an 89. At Shattuck, Doyle, a senior, turned in an 81 to edge Sweetman by a stroke.

Freshman Luke Gillett paced the rest of the lineup at both meets, shooting a 90 at Cottage Grove and an 83 at Shattuck. Travis Parker added a 91 and an 84 and Cody Schultz turned in a 91 and a 97.

Patrick Flynn scored a 104 at Cottage Grove and David Booke rounded out the lineup with a 96 at Shattuck.

The Irish return to the course this afternoon when they take on Coon Rapids at Bunker Hills Golf Course.
