Girl Linksters Fall to CRB; Girls and Boys Compete at Atlantic
Finally, a decent day for golf for the Charger girls! Yesterday the team made the short trip to Coon Rapids for a dual meet with the Crusaders. Despite coming up on the short end of a 252-274 score, coach Lori McGivney found some positives in the results. "I'm seeing a lot of improvement with the girls, but we're just not always seeing it in their scores. It will come. I'm very proud of their demeanor on the course."
Kena Baier and Haley Sheeder paced the Charger scoring with 60's, followed by Morgan Sheeder with a 76, Sally Jo Geckler with a 78 and Jessica Stringer with an 81.
Last Thursday the Charger teams golfed at Atlantic in a quadrangular with CAM, AHSTW, and EX-EHK. CAM was the only team that entered a full varsity squad in the girls event and obviously won the meet with a score of 208. For the Chargers, Kena Baier and Haley Sheeder played on the varsity and shot scores of 57 and 58 respectively. Three ACGC golfers played at the JV level, with Morgan Sheeder, Jessica Stringer both having scores of 74 and Sally Jo Geckler shooting an 84.
In the boys' meet, Ex-EHK won the event with a score of 185, while CAM finished second at 201 and the Chargers shot 250. AHSTW did not field a full varsity team. McKlain Jorgensen had the best score for ACGC as he shot a 53 on the par 35 course. Spencer Grove shot a 65 and Eli Kading and Nolan Wheatley both had scores of 66 to complete the varsity scoring. Austin Hall was next with a 67 and Seth Danker had a 72.
McGivney had this to say about the meet. "Not out best night on the links, but everyone did their best. It was very windy and the course played really tough. This spring has been difficult with the lack of cooperation from the weather. It is difficult to practice, learn, and compete when new to the game and we don't even have green grass under our ball. It will get better and I have confidence that our golf will improve too."
The boys' team will next see action at Panorama on Saturday, while the girls are off until Monday when they will also travel to Panorama.
