The girls’ golf team had a busy week in the first week of May. They teed it off with a home tournament on Friday, May 3. Following the weekend, the team competed in the conference meet at the Clarinda Country Club. Their week closed on Thursday, May 9 at an all-day tournament.

At the Southeast Polk tournament, the team got 3rd place with a score of 381. They were behind Marshalltown and WDM Valley. According to head coach Kathy Hobson, the weather made “very rough playing conditions.”

At the Hawkeye 10 conference meet, the girls were runner up, falling behind Creston. According to Hobson, they knew topping Creston was going to be a battle.

The Trojan’s total score was 369, just behind Creston who had a score of 362. Atlantic was followed by Glenwood, with a score of 406. Coming up in fourth was Kuemper with 411 and they tied with Lewis Central. Following Lewis Central was Clarinda with 415, Harlan with 424, Shenandoah with 426, Red Oak with 429, and Denison-Schleswig brought up the rear with a score of 454.

At their home tournament the girls competed against 11 other teams. Seniors Alyssa Ginther and Baylee Newell both received individual medals of 2nd and 3rd place, respectively.

The girls will have their next meet on Tuesday, May 14 in Harlan.
