Trelstad started out with a bit of state tourney nerves, according to his Wildcat coach, Bryon Rogers, and it showed with a 44 on the front nine of the West Course. Despite impending rain and ugly weather approaching, he cleaned that up to start hitting his shots. Then, of course, the serious weather hit and suspended his round on the 12th hole.
On the second day, Trelstad resumed play and kept his momentum going, carding a respectable 40 on the back nine.
However, he had to start back at the front nine on the East Course for his second round later that day, and again, he had troubles.
He carded a 45, which was the second highest round of the day on that part of the course.
But, his turnaround on the back nine was near miraculous. He regrouped after his tough front score and shot a 37 on the back nine, the sixth best score in Class AA for that stretch.
Overall, Trelstad carded an 84 on the first course and an 82 on the second course for a total of 166. His total score put him in a tie for 75th place at the state tournament, a place he certainly hopes to improve upon next year.
Rogers is confident that Trelstad and his team will be better than ever next year. “The future looks bright as we have a young group of boys who will be the heart of this (Chisago Lakes) team for the next several years,” he said. “Thomas Overgaard, Justin Lawry, Jackson Waltman and Tucker Bakken have learned from the best in Bryce Thompson and Andrue and will continue to strengthen this program. Andrue will definitely be able to step into a leadership role next year during his senior season.”
