Irish boys miss section finals

 

The Maple Lake Irish boys golf team’s season was cut short when none of the golfers advanced to the second day of sections at Pebble Creek Golf Course in Becker.
With the cutoff to continue on to the second day being 85, none of the Irish golfers moved on to day two. Leading the Irish was Aidan Jude who was just shy of the cutoff with an 89. The remaining Irish scores are as follows: Peyton Beehler – 91, Brandon Borell – 92, Jordan Mills – 99, Jason Pomije 100 and Jay Elsenpeter – 105. Combined, the team ended with a total shot count of 371. 
“We didn't play as well as I expected and I know the guys were not happy with their performances," coach Aaron Hegle said. "The cut line was at 85 and I know a couple of guys could shoot that any given day, so it was kind of disappointing."

Four advance to represent Irish at state track meet


Cody Bakka (center) placed in several events at the Section 5A meet, but missed qualifying for state. He finished fifth in the long jump, sixth in the 100- and 200-meter dashes, and was a part of the fourth-place 4x200 relay team.

 

Four boys will be representing the Maple Lake High School track and field team in two events at the 2014 Minnesota State High School League Track and Field Championships on Friday and Saturday at Hamline University in St. Paul, following a strong showing at the Section 5A meet at St. John’s University.
Andrew Schonnesen, Jackson Willard, Scott Jordan and Ryan Kalinowski set a new MLHS record of 8:12.3 in the 4x800 relay to place second and qualify for state.
"I am excited for this year's qualifiers: Andrew, Jackson, Scott, and Ryan really exceeded my expectations when they went 8:12,” head coach Ben Youngs said. “However, now that I've seen them compete like that, I have no doubt they will bring their ‘A-game’ at state. I expect them to be among the top teams there.”
