Tuesday, August 6, 2013 Cold Spring Record Page 9 River Oaks and Rich Spring Golf Courses generously sponsor ROCORI's boys and girls summer golf series offered by the Min- nesota Golf Association. By virtue of their second place finish in District 3, the boys team will be making their second trip to the state meet in the past two summers. District 3 consists of teams sponsored by courses in a geographical area from St. Cloud, up to Staples, over to Alexandria, down to Willmar. The Vintage Golf Course in Staples was the District 3 Champion. They are the reigning Class AA State Boys Golf Champions. Each of our local courses spon- sors a four man team. The sum- mer golf series sponsored by courses consists of a series of four regular season events in which points are kept in order to deter- mine the teams that will repre- sent the district at the state meet in Duluth. Three of the four scores are counted to determine a team's score at a meet. Here is a quick overview of the team results for the four meet se- ries. Rich Spring hosted the first event of the year. The varsity boys team placed second (10 points) behind Staples, the other fifth (4 points). The next meet was held at Minnewaska Golf Club. Again, the varsity boys team placed second (8 points be- cause of a tie) to Staples and the other, eighth (1 point). At the third event hosted by Cuyuna in Deerwood, ROCORI's two teams placed fourth (6 points) and sixth (3 points). The Staples team won the event. The regular season of district play concluded at The Vintage in Staples. They were able to dominate at their home course. ROCORI teams finished fourth (6 points) and fifth (4 points). Even though the team placed poorly in the last event, the total points earned over the series (30 points) ensured the second place team trophy would be held by a team from ROCORI. Here are the players that par- ticipated representing River Oaks and Rich Spring Golf Courses tby there best score of the summer series.

With the exception of the NFL most sports are working to rid themselves of Human Growth Hormone and other drugs. The USA Today re- ported in its July 23rd edition that the league and union have agreed on a population study (what)? to determine whether HGH levels in pro football play- ers are much different than for people in the general population. If the study satisfies the union chief, the players may agree to proceed with testing. It seems from here this is just another tease. Once the hammer falls suspended NFL players may far exceed those in baseball. LEGION BASEBALL ... Cold Spring needed one win to make it to the State Tourna- ment, so they were murdered by the horrendous score of 19-0 at the local yard. The loss to Hutchinson meant a final game for all the playoff potatoes and Cold Spring won to advance to the state play-down in Edina. An earlier tournament highlight was provided by CS catcher Kir- by TeBrake going 4 for 5 with a double and three RBI. ARE WE? ... If we have to show identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor or check-out a library book, but not to vote who runs the government, we might live in a country run by idiots. THE SPRINGERS KEEP ROLLING ALONG ... Manager Tim Illies is a happy man these days as our Cold Spring nine looks like a definite playoff and state tourney threat. With the regular season nearly complete, pitching aces Zach Femrite, Chris Butala and Sean Terres have combined for 23 of the club's 27 wins. At the plate, Ro- cori and SCSU grad, outfielder Brian Hansen is making his presence known with a club leading .394 average through 20 games. STUFF ... It appears the Yankees may be toying with Alex Rodriguez, hoping that he has a season or career-ending in- jury and the club can pickup in- surance money on the remainder of his multi-million dollar con- tract .... One of my favorite pitchers is Seattle's Felix Her- nandez. Against the Twins last week he struck out 11, and walked none. He hasn't lost in 12 starts dating back to May 25th. Watching him is a purist's delight .... August is Town Ball tournament time throughout Minnesota. Nice to know Cold Spring may be in the thick of it. ... Former Twins' pitching ace Francisco Liriano, now twirling for Pittsburgh, is on a roll. On July 29th he won his llth game, striking out 8, winning his fifth consecutive start and taking his ERA to 2.16. What a kick to watch him pitch when he was here. It was a thrill just watch- ing him walk to the mound .... MLB players and fans are ec- static and proud that Yankee Hall of Famers Yogi Berra and Whitey Ford are still with us. You look down the trail of Coop- erstown gents and it is quickly apparent that these, for the most part, are men of character who arrived at the Hall because of their skills and character.
