Boys Golf Preview: Frazee looks for higher goals
There will be an up-tick in expectations in the Heart O’Lakes Conference for the Frazee boys’ golf team, which finished fourth in 2013.
The Hornets return a host of juniors with varsity experience, including Calvin Streeper, who nearly missed a state berth in last year’s Section 8-1A meet.
“In our conference, I would like to see us move up from last year’s fourth-place finish,” said Frazee head coach Jason Reierson. “The bulk of our team are juniors with some varsity experience.”
Those juniors include Streeper, Isaac Schermerhorn, Brady Mickelson, Austin Torma, Matt Tangen and Mat Daggett.
The lone senior will be John Geis, who had a strong offseason playing golf.
“Calvin Streeper, Isaac Schermerhorn and Brady Mickelson will be our core starting the season, with hopefully someone else stepping up to help our team scores,” Reierson said. “I think Calvin and Isaac can challenge to finish toward the top at most of our meets.”
The Hornets were also bumped up to Class 2A, where now they will have to compete against the likes of Detroit Lakes, Fergus Falls and other larger schools in Section 8-2A.
“Moving in with Detroit Lakes, Fergus Falls and some of the other area powers will be very challenging for us,” the Frazee coach included.
The Hornets open the season Monday, April 14, at Tipsinah Golf Course in the West Central Area meet.
