Golf: Elk girls top Osseo in cold season opener

Two straight days outside in the cold have netted the Elk River girl golfers one conference win.

The Elks opened with a 170 to 202 win over Osseo on Tuesday at Anoka, led by Morgan Bleyhl with 39 and Samantha Lindeen with 40. Other counters were¬† Alexa Filipiak with 45 and Grace O’Konek with 46.

“Ice hockey conditions,” commented coach Dave Bleyhl, a former hockey coach. “We were outside for the first time Monday, to qualify. It was awfully cold yesterday, worse than today.”

It was mid-30’s both days with more wind on Monday than Tuesday.

The Elks have another NWSC meet slated for Thursday against Champlin Park.
