“Scores were a little high today but consistent with our top four ranging from 47-51,” said coach Jacquelyn Hauser.

“We are still looking for a couple of girls to go low each meet to bring our team score down to where it needs to be. We continue to rotate girls into the five and six spots and are looking for a couple girls to step up and fill those roles.”

Katie McCarthy earned medalist honors with a 47. Jen Ely carded 48,  Katie Meyer 49 and Paige Langen 51. Rachel Petersen scored a 57 and Kendra Prahl 58.

The Warrior JV team played uncontested. Claire Eglinton carded a 56, Claudia Melde 58, Ashley Gavin 59 and Kailee Bjerke 59. Hannah Hendel came in with a 60, Julie Sand 60, Nicole Krenzke 71 and Karli Fishbaugher 75.

“Our three seniors stayed consistent for us tonight, however, we still posted one of our highest scores of the season,” said Hauser. “We struggled with our putting and short games on a very wet Southland course. Jen posted a good score of 46 taking medalist honors.”

Ely carded a 46, Langen 47, McCarthy 49 and Meyer 58. Petersen scored 63 and Eglinton 64.

Again, the C-SG JV had no opponent to play against. Prahl carded a 54, Hendel 55, Bjerke 59 and Melde 60. Sand had a 64 and Fishbaugher 71.

“We start tournament play with the conference tournament on Thursday,” said Hauser. “The girls will be working hard this week on their short games and playing qualifying rounds as we try to find our five and six players.”

Junior High Meet

The junior high golfers participated in a tournament on Friday, May 11 in Harmony. Coach Hauser said that all three girls played very well and placed second, third and fourth.

“The eighth graders have been working very hard to improve their games and they have come a long way. They did a great job at this tournament with all placing in the top four! It is very exciting to see our eighth graders showing dedication to the game and working hard to improve. These three show a lot of potential for the next several years.”

Ashley Gavin took second place with a 52; Claudia Melde was third with a 57 and Nicole Krenzke was fourth with a 60. Medalist was Calle Fisher of St. Charles with a 47.
