Maple Lake High School’s boys golf team competed in two outings last week.
On Tuesday, May 1, the Irish hosted a Central Minnesota Conference contest at Whispering Pines in Annandale.
The Irish had two golfers with top five performances; Devon Lyons shot a 38 for second place and Sam Zappa finished with a 40 for third place on the nine-hole course. Other contributing Irish golfers were Joe Stokman (48), Ben Weese (56), Jackson Gallagher (51) and Jack Peterson (59). The team total of 177 was good enough for third place at the seven-team event. Kimball-Eden Valley-Watkins won with 172 strokes and Pierz was second with 173. Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa was fourth with 183.
On Thursday, May 3, the Irish traveled to Kimball for their second CMC event of the week and came away with another third place finish. Pierz claimed the top spot this time with 182 strokes, K-EV-W was second with 183 and Maple Lake shot a 192. B-B-E was a close fourth with 193 and Osakis shot a 197 for fifth.
Maple Lake’s Stokman shot a 43 for third place. Lyons’ 45 was the next lowest score of the day; Zappa shot a 53; Weese shot a 64; Gallagher shot a 51 and Sean Zangs shot a 58 for the Irish.
The golfers will take to the course again on Monday, May 14, at Koronis in Paynesville.
