The Rosemount girls golf team wrapped up its memorable spring season with a sixth-place finish at the Class 3A state tournament last Wednesday at Bunker Hills Golf Course in Coon Rapids.
The Irish shot a 352 on Day 1 and came back to fire a 344 on Day 2 for a total of 696 in the program’s first state appearance since 1988.

“It was fantastic. It’s a different atmosphere and the air is just different when it’s state. I was just so pleased and impressed with how the girls played,” longtime coach Barry Wallin said. “Our girls played with some of the best in the state of Minnesota and just handled themselves outstandingly well.… I was very happy to beat Cretin-Derham Hall and Mounds View both days. They’ve been pretty solid programs.”
Junior Monica McDonald led the Irish with a two-day total of 168. She shot an 80 on Day 1 and an 88 on Day 2 to finish tied for 36th out of 88 golfers.
“She was very focused and her driver was working well on Tuesday. She was making some nice saves around the green,” Wallin said. “Wednesday was just one of those days, but she stayed with it and still had a good round.”
Rosemount’s next three golfers all finished in a tight pack. Jessica Petersen tied for 49th with a two-day total of 176 and seniors Ashlee Humble and Molly Reber capped off their careers with matching scores of 178 that were good enough for a tie for 53rd.

Girls golf: Irish golfers qualify for state
By Matt Steichen on Jun 5, 2014 at 11:21 a.m.
The last time the Rosemount girls qualified a full team for the state golf tournament was in 1988 – two years before current coach Barry Wallin took over the program.
That drought ended Monday when the Irish used a strong back nine to overtake Eastview and Apple Valley and capture the Section 3AAA championship with a total score of 682 at Bunker Hills Golf Course in Coon Rapids. Apple Valley finished three strokes back with a 685.
The Irish will be back at Bunker Hills for the Class 3A state tournament beginning Tuesday.
“They didn’t let that (history) get in their way. This group is really good at trying to take all the expectations that might be there and setting them aside so they can stay focused on one shot at a time,” Wallin said. “That really keyed our victory Monday. The kids really came through.”
Rosemount led Apple Valley by a stroke, 336-337, after the first day of play on Friday. The 336 was a top-10 all-time low score in program history.
Monica McDonald fired an 80 on Friday and followed that up with an 87 Monday to place her fourth out of 60 golfers.
Jessica Petersen finished second for the Irish with a 172 after carding a team-low 84 on Monday. Senior captains Molly Reber and Ashlee Humble were right behind with 36-hole totals of 173 and 176, respectively.
Eighth-grader Sydney Regalado contributed a round of 85 on Friday and finished with a 183. Freshman Gretchen McDonald added a 188.
“I could not be more proud of all of them,” Wallin said. “This is a wonderful group of girls who work hard, listen to coaching and get along well together.”
The state trip caps off a banner season where the Irish finished first at Valleywood and second in tournaments at Hazeltine, Edina, Rich Valley and Emerald Greens. They finished second in the South Suburban Conference while landing five players on the first team and a sixth on the honorable mention list.
“To sum it up, it feels great. It’s my 24th year coaching this team and it’s been a work in progress. We have had a pretty vibrant junior program at Emerald Greens the last six or seven years and my assistant coach Matt Harrison has been instrumental in building the program,” Wallin said. “The parents have been supporting of the kids playing golf in the summer.… The administration and teachers have worked with the program through all of the rescheduling because of the weather.… It’s really a culmination of so many things coming together and leading to a victory on Monday.”
State tournament play begins at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday in Coon Rapids.
“That will be icing on the cake,” Wallin said. “There is some very outstanding competition in girls golf this year – unprecedented levels of excellence. We feel honored to represent our section and we’ll give it our best.”
