Because of a late start to the season due to the ongoing pandemic, the DeForest boys golf team is trying to get in as many meets as possible in a short time window.
The scheduling issues forced the Norskies to play two events in one day on April 27.
“Because of a tough scheduling situation, our varsity played 18 holes at this invite and nine more holes later at a Baraboo dual,” DeForest coach Scott Siemion said.
DeForest started the day at the end Sauk Prairie Invite at Lake Wisconsin Country Club. They finished with a team score of 420.
“The tree lined fairways seemed to cause our entire team some issues, but our short game showed improvement,” Siemion said.
Later in the day, the Norskies dropped a 180-211 to Baraboo at the Baraboo Country Club.
“We had a fatigued group by the end, but they competed,” Siemion said.
Last Friday, DeForest hosted Sauk Prairie at Lake Windsor Country Club. The Eagles scored a 212-224 victory.
The Norskies will host Waunakee at Lake Windsor at 2 p.m. on May 5.
This Friday, DeForest will take part in the Portage Invite at 10 a.m.
