Osakis boys golf takes second in opener

The Osakis boys’ golf team took second place at the Central Minnesota Conference tournament at Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa on Friday with a team score of 183. 

It was a good way to start the season for the Silverstreaks, and they fell short of only Rockford, who won the conference meet with a 170.

Joe Garcia led the way with a third-place finish after shooting a 42. Ryan Strelow shot a 43 to take fifth, while Joey Kotek was right behind him in 10th place with a 45. Ethan Chambers and RJ Dykema each shot a 53.

The Silverstreaks girls didn’t play last week, but were scheduled to get their season going last night, Tuesday, at Rockford. The boys will head to Blackberry Ridge next Monday for the 6AA pre-section meet at 9:30 a.m.


BOYS’ TEAM SCORES – 1. Rockford – 170; 2. Osakis – 183; 3. Eden Valley-Watkins – 186; 4. Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa – 190; 5. Maple Lake – 191; 6. Howard Lake-Waverly – 203; 7. Pierz – 258
