FIELD TWP- It appears the North Woods boy golf team likes to spread the riches, as the Grizzlies had their third top medalist of the season on Monday in the Mesabi East Invitational.
Sam Frazee turned the trick this time, firing a sizzling 77 to finish three strokes clear of the rest of the field. He joins prior top medalists Ian Olson and Davis Kleppe.
“Sam was definitely dialed in yesterday. He was hitting his targets and his putting was excellent,” Coach Will Kleppe said. “Sam is a golfer who can think his way around a golf course and the clubs he pulled reflected that. A course like The Quarry, when played from the blue tees, makes you hit some narrow landing points if you want to bomb a driver all day. Sam played smart on his tee shots and gave himself a great opportunity to hit greens and his score reflected that.”
North Woods also ran away with the team title, outdistancing second-place Hibbing by 17 strokes. Ian Olson shot an 86, Eli Smith stroked an 89, and Davis Kleppe carded a 96.
North Woods only took three golfers to a Saturday tournament at The Quarry at Giants Ridge, one short of competing for the team title against the nine other squads at the event.
But Ian Olson tied for tenth place with an 84, while Eli Smith claimed 17th with an 87. Ty Fabish shot a 105.
The Grizzlies managed a second-place showing at the International Falls tournament on May 5, with Ian Olson leading the way with a score of 80. David Kleppe scored an 88, Eli Smith finished with 103, and Ty Fabish came in at 110.
