After a storm blew through Albany, the Granite Ridge boys golf teams hit the course, Monday.
Despite the wet conditions, junior Dakota Joslin and the Flyers did reasonably well, placing fourth with a 175 total.
“It was pretty wet out there, but I was striking the ball well, and it helped a lot that I was hitting fairways,” Joslin said.
Joslin led the Flyers with a 42.
“I was hitting a lot of greens, and then every once in a while I got that long par putt to roll in, which was nice to have,” Joslin said.
Ethan Ballou and Max Dempsey each carded 43’s to help the Little Falls effort.
Joslin said that the Flyers have had a bit of a bumpy road thus far.
“It’s been rough, but everyone is starting to come around,” Joslin said. “I think we’re having our top guys starting to shoot a lot better, but it will get even better when we can get everyone to put together a solid four scores.”
The Flyers will be back on the course for the final Granite Ridge meet at Wapicada in St. Cloud, Monday. It will be an 18-hole meet.
