Waconia’s Matt Rachey capped his senior golf season with a solid performance at the Class AAA meet, held at Bunker Hills on June 11-12.

After finishing fourth in the 2012 tournament, Rachey’s 17th place finish this season may not be what he wanted, but a top 20 finish among the top 88 individual golfers in the state is nothing to scoff at.

He finished Day 1 in a large tie for 29th position after golfing 39 in, 38 out for 77 total strokes. On Day 2, Rachey had 76 total strokes (37 in, 39 out). With a score of 153 over the two days, Rachey ended in a nine-man tie for 17th position with Jack Pexa (New Prague), Jacob Cooper (Hastings), Sam Otto (Hastings) Matthew Radke (Hastings), Shane Sienko (St. Thomas Academy), Tom St. Martin (Wayzata), Matt Shawd (Eden Prairie), and Morgan Rask (Rogers).

Chanhassen senior Cody Seal was the overall individual champion at 143 strokes. The Section 2AAA team champion, Eden Prairie, took home the team title, winning by one stroke over Wayzata.

Look for a full season wrap up in the coming weeks.
