Osakis Country Club was the site of the Central Minnesota Conference golf meet Monday, May 6, where the young Kimball-Eden Valley-Watkins team again found themselves in the cellar. The very inexperienced squad is struggling early, but coach Jason Huschle is patient and understanding. “I’ve asked the kids to focus on getting better every time they get on the course, and so far every player has improved on their previous scores. We still have a long way to go but hopefully this continues, so we keep heading in the right direction.” The competing teams included in the meet were Belgrade-Brooten-Elrosa, Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted, Kimball-Eden Valley-Watkins, Maple Lake, Pierz, Rockford and Osakis.
