The Alexandria boys' golf team had to wait out some strong thunderstorms that moved through the area on Monday morning, and after the brief wait the Cardinals finished in fourth place in their home invitational at the Alexandria Golf Club with a score of 329.


Fergus Falls won the annual Invitational with a score of 315, followed by St. Cloud Tech in second at 323 and Owatonna in third at 327.

Kagan Foster shot the best score individually on the Alexandria Red team with a score of 80. Cole Haugen and Aaron Johnson both led the Alexandria Black team with scores of 81. Brandon Bistodeau shot an 83 and Lukas Bigger rounded out the top four scores for the Alexandria Black team with an 84.

The Cardinals felt they maybe should have golfed better at their home course on Monday. Both Haugen and Johnson said the team’s rounds could have been better after the meet was finished Monday afternoon.

“Definitely it could have been better on our home course,” Haugen said. “It was windy, but still, no excuse.”

The wind was strong and the course a little damp after the Monday morning storms. The players said those conditions did not help.

“Overall it could have been better,” Johnson said. “A couple bad holes, but it’s going to happen with the wind.”
