Crookston finishes runner-up at Roseau, its best meet so far.

The Pirate boys' golf team competed in two meets on the weekend, finishing fourth and eighth at the Thief River Falls Invitational on Friday and runner-up at the Roseau Invitational on Saturday. Crookston posted its best meet of the season in Roseau at Oak Crest Golf Course with five golfers breaking 80.

"We played very well in Roseau," Pirate head coach Steve Kofoed said. "With five scores in the 70s it is by far the best we've done. In years past we always seem to play well at the Roseau course. It being a par 71 helps with the distance.

"It was the first time Doug Larson broke 80," Kofoed noted. "Isaac Westlake is playing very well right now. He is someone that is putting very well right now. He has confidence and he is making some birdies, which is good to see. Wyatt had five birdies on the day. He was up and down a little bit. The tough part was we had seven three putts and with the rain on the last three or four holes our guys played those holes two or three over."

The Pirates will close out their regular season Thursday at Detroit Lakes before the Subsection North Meet Wednesday, May 29 at Valley Golf Course in East Grand Forks.

"We hope to have a good week in Detroit Lakes on Thursday. We'll do some qualification stuff this week for the section team too," coach Kofoed said.
