The Crookston boys' golf team hosted the Pirate Invite Monday morning at Minakwa Golf Course, finishing tied for third in the four-team field.

The Pirates posted a team score of 350 (70 over par), by far their best score of the season relative to par. 

Kaleb Thingelstad, who had Crookston's best round in the team's first two invites and the second-best round in the other, fired an 81 to finish tied for fourth.

Blaine Andringa was the Pirates' other top-10 finisher, tying for sixth with a score of 83. Jaxon Wang, Brannon Tangquist, Gavin Anderson and Garrett Fischer rounded out the team by placing 17th, 21st, 22nd and 25th respectively.

Roseau won the invite going away, shooting a 309. Thief River Falls scored 347 to finish three strokes ahead of both Crookston and East Grand Forks.

The Rams also had the three top finishers individually: Max Wilson (73), Teagan LaPlante (74) and Judd Ginther (79).
