Golfers wrapping up regular season slate
North Branch and Chisago Lakes finished up their regular season schedule this week with back-to-back meets at Princeton Golf Course and Chisago Lakes Golf Course, but before that they got a nice section preview at the Grand Invitational at Hinckley Grand National on Friday, May 20.
The Wildcats finished in 11th place in the 15 team meet and North Branch avoided the bottom spot by topping St. Francis.
For the Wildcats, Andrew Swanson, a sophomore, led the way with an 82. Freshman Brett Hanson and junior Brock Thompson shot matching 86s and freshman Joe Froberg carded a 91. Max Koch, an eighth grader, was the fifth varsity golfer for CL, and he shot 97.

Another seventh grader, Drake Dimich, rounded out North Branch’s scoring golfers with a 96. Trevor Johnson scored a 110 for the Vikings.
