It’s tough losing a two-year captain and five-year varsity letter winner. That’s what happened to the Hutchinson High School boys golf team with the graduation of Cam Longie, who is now a freshman playing at Gustavus Adolphus College.

And Longie wasn’t the only guy to graduate as the Tigers lost three players from last year’s section team. The good news is they have a core group of five letter winners returning from 2021. With that returning experience, the team is in good position to make some noise in the Wright County Conference East this year, which will look significantly different from past seasons.
