(By Head Coach Jeff Groth)
A day after coming in third in the Big 9 conference final, the Albert Lea boys golf team traveled to Owatonna Country Club to play in the Owatonna invitational.(10 teams) Owatonna’s greens were running very fast but the boys were up for the challenge, posting a team score of 320 which was good enough to earn them first place. They were followed by Northfield with a 323 who had just beat Albert Lea by 10 strokes the day before.
Leading the Tigers was senior Captain Tucker McKinney with a 76. He was followed by Junior Captain Drew Teeter who shot an 80. The final two scores that counted for Albert Lea were Freshman Archie Nelson (81) and Tim Chalmers (83).
The boys have their final regular season match on Thursday against the Edina Hornets at Green Lea Golf Course. This match takes place at 10:00 AM.
