They finished in second place at a two-day Grand Rapids Invitational last week, including a 309 score at Eagle Ridge on the second day.
The Wildcats were anchored by Ben Forsberg’s 72, Tucker Bakken’s 76 and Will Forsberg’s 78. Ben Forsberg carded a 156 for the two-day event, earning a medal for Chisago Lakes.
“It was a pretty memorable tournament and a pretty memorable second day,” Head Coach Bryon Rogers said. “It was great to get up north and get some golfing in finally!”
The Forsberg twins led the way again for CL in their first Mississippi 8 Conference of the year when the ‘Cats shot a 317. Will Forsberg had a 77 and Ben shot a 78.
On Monday, April 29, the Wildcats hosted their lone home meet of the year, and they showed how well they know their own course.
They scored a 298, which is believe to be only one stroke off of the school record of 297 recorded just a few years ago. They beat Princeton by 29 strokes as the Tigers came in second. They were almost 100 strokes in front of Cambridge-Isanti, who shot a 396.
The team was stacked up and down on that day. Bakken shot a 72 to lead CL on their home course, and Ben Forsberg carded a 73. Jackson Waltman had a 75 and Will Forsberg had a 78.
Sam Helland, who was playing junior varisty, carded a 75 and would’ve lowered CL’s score by three strokes if he had been varsity. “He’s getting a shot to play varsity after that round,” Rogers said excitedly.
