JORDAN — Pequot Lakes senior Tyler Seeling capped his high school career with a two-day score of 155 as the Patriot boys golf team finished seventh at the Class 2A State Tournament at Ridges at Sand Creek.

Seeling shot an 81 in the opening round – affected by a double bogey on the eighth hole – before improving to a 74 on Day 2.

His two-day score landed him in 18th place individually for All-State honors.

I know he was hoping to finish in the top five,” head coach Steve Stoxen said. “We’re going to miss him next year. He’s a great golfer and an even better person.”

“An 83 as a seventh-grader is extremely impressive,” Stoxen said, “and he was the only seventh-grader in the field.

Michael Oseland had a 176 and Logan Fogarty shot a 181 for the Patriots.

“I’m really proud of those guys,” Stoxen said. “It was a great season.”
