Tigers boys’ golf breaks 310 against Waseca

The Albert Lea boys’ golf team did something head coach Riley Worth’s not sure he’s seen before Thursday, but it’s something he’d like to see more of as the season progresses.

The Tigers shot a 309 at Green Lea Golf Course to beat Waseca by 29 strokes, and Worth believed it to be the best score the team has posted in his five years as head coach. Last season Albert Lea shot 296 on a shortened Waseca course where par was 69.

“That’s a score I’d take every single time,” Worth said.
