Canton shot well enough to win the Harrisburg Golf Invitational Thursday with a 344 while Sioux Falls Christian finished as runner-up with a 346, but as Lady Quarrier Coach Jeff Devorak told Big Sioux Media it was still a good day.
“It was a beautiful blue sky and nearly 80 degrees, but that darn wind howled again over 20 mph. I think all the girls have gotten used to it, however, because the scores were strong. Spring Creek’s greens are much larger than we see on most courses so our putt count was little higher than normal, but that didn’t stop Brianna (84), April (103) and Natasha (110) from setting their career lows – I was extra proud of those girls. Natasha and April were actually in a playoff for our last varsity spot and even though April edged her out, Natasha really competed and made her earn it. Emily (86) and Bri really stepped up and played clean golf while Hannah (94) put together her 2nd strong round in a row. Lexie (94) is battling a little knee “tweak” right now but she was able to grind out a decent score – she is a tough one and will certainly not let it affect her at Monday’s region. Our team total (3rd place) was a respectable 358 and were going to need that to move down a few strokes as we hit the post-season”.
