Head coach: Aaron Young

Assistant coaches: Jim Stafford

Returning golfers: Sam Baker, sr.; Brayden Tyman, sr.; Trevor Steinert, sr.; Karson Patten, soph.

New faces to watch: Jacob Walsh, jr.

First meet: April 12 at home vs. Duluth East, Grand Rapids, Hibbing and Hermantown


Team strengths: Cloquet returns four golfers from the team that finished third at the 2019 state tournament.

Biggest challenge: "COVID-19 and its impact on a modified season," coach Aaron Young said.

Coach's assessment

"The Cloquet boys golf team looks to challenge for the conference title with a strong group of returning players with state tournament experience," Young said. "Cloquet will rely on its veteran players, but with six players competing each meet, several younger players will be vying to fill out the squad this year."
