After having recent meets cancelled due to rain, the Roland-Story girls’ golf team finally enjoyed a sunny day on the course as they competed in the HOIC conference meet at Cedar Pointe on May 3.
The girls placed fifth in a field of eight teams, with Nevada winning the meet.
Allisyn Coghlan placed 13th in the meet with a score of 103 on the 18-hole course. Alayna Ringsby placed 16th overall with a total of 105, and Susie Weaver was 18th with a score of 106.
Sydney Weaver shot a 110, Tori Fornier 130 and Calli Tystahl 146.
“Overall conference was really fun. We ended up doing pretty good and have so much room for improvement before Regionals,” said Sydney Weaver.
“The meet was interesting in many ways: from getting lost before it started, to having to rush lunch to keep going. (It was a confusing back 9),” said Tori Fournier.
“We golfed well. It was fun,” said Susie Weaver.
“It was a very good experience, and we all learned more about each other and our opponents,” said Calli Tystahl.
“Conference was a good opportunity for us to see how our team really compared to other schools, and an opportunity to challenge ourselves to play the best that we could,” said Alayna Ringsby.
“We had to cancel two golf meets because of all the rain we had this past week or so, so as a team we were still trying to find our swing at conference, and ours scores indicated that,” said Larry Ammerman, head coach. “We shot our average, which is OK — but at this time of the season we need to be dropping our scores.”
