Section 7AA, Day 2

The top six teams and the individual golfers with the lowest totals on day 1 competed Memorial Day to determine the team and individual entrants in next week's State Golf Meet at Bunker Hills.

Princeton had the best round Monday with a stellar 290, but it wasn't enough to catch first round co-leader Forest Lake. The Rangers finished with a two day total of 592 and will represent Section 7AA at state. The Wildcats shot a 316 on Monday for a two day total of 620 and a fifth place finish.

Angrimson shot a 73 on Monday for a two-day total of 141 which tied for the low individual with Kyle Lewis of Forest Lake. Agrimson will represent the Wildcats at the state meet next week.

"Luke's 68 on Thursday was a pretty incredible round, especially considering the weather," said Wildcat coach Perry Aadland. "He was two strokes behind Kyle Lewis (34) of Forest Lake after nine. He started the back nine with three consecutive birdies on 10, 11, and 12 to take the lead and then scrambled for a par out of a rain-soaked fairway bunker on 13. He led all golfers after the first round by three. Luke started Monday with a couple of bogies, but then went one under on the last 16 holes.

"As far as our team, we played all right, but not great. When it comes to this section, you have to play great to advance. Our individuals, other than Luke, were often scrambling a bit, and weren't able to put together long strings of routine pars. Both Forest Lake and Elk River had solid first rounds . I wasn't sure our scores were going to be good enough (to qualify for round 2) until Luke came in with his 68. Princeton's second day score of 290 was outstanding. They were able to pass Elk River and Grand Rapids and nearly caught Forest Lake," Aadland added.

Girls at Section 7AA

Under threatening skies, the Chisago Lakes and North Branch girls played in the Section 7AA Golf Tournament Wednesday, May 23 at Grand National Golf Course in Hinckley.

The Wildcats, led by senior Jaime Tschida, finished with a team score of 371 to take fifth in the 16 team field. Tschida's 84 qualified her to play in the second round of the individual portion of the tournament, also in Hinckley.

Tschida finished her high school golf career by shooting a 95 Memorial Day in the second day of the tournament. Her two-day total (179) put her in 15th place.

"Jaime struggled on Monday, especially on the front nine," said Wildcat coach Jeanne Hawkinson. "On the first few holes, she had a hard time getting off the tee-box. But, by the fifth hole, she was outdriving the other girls in her group by 20-25 yards. Her short game gave her some problems, but she persevered and improved as she went.

"I was very proud of her. This was a great way to end her high school golfing career. She has been a big part of our team--a great player and great captain. Hopefully golf is something she will have as a part of her life for a long time," Hawkinson added.

Ashli Helstrom of Hibbing awed the fans, players and coaches with a 66. Andover's Hillary Gerster (71), Elk River's Molly Martin (74) and Forest Lake's Betsy Kelley (77) were among the individual leaders.
