Golf: Roger boys tie for 2nd in Albert Lea tourney
The Rogers Royals tied for second in a power-packed Albert Lea Invitational, won by defending state champion Wayzata, on Friday and Saturday.
Wayzata won with 607 despite having three of their top six in another tournament, Detroit Lakes. Rogers and Chanhassen each shot 613. There were 22 teams, six of them ranked.
“Wayzata showed the depth of their program,” said Rogers coach Daniel Bursheim.
Rogers senior McCabe Buege was third with 73-76-149. Jordan Rykal shot 77-76-153, Morgan Rask 72-83-155, Corey Muenzhuber 77-81-158, Andy Suedbeck 84-81-165, and Zach Hnath 86-84-170.
“Morgan had a career day (72) the first day, and had two bad holes the second day,” noted Bursheim.
Conditions were windy both days, and rainy the second day.
Andrew Brandt of Wayzata was medalist with 145, with Justin Mulder of Lakeville South next at 148, then Buege.
Rogers has a Mississippi 8 meet at Princeton on Monday.
