Each day brings the Dell Rapids Lady Quarriers golf team closer to the Regional Meet and then the trip out west for the State Golf Meet. This past Thursday the challenging links style course of Baker Crossing against some very good teams was a good test at the Sioux Falls Christian Golf Invitational. Parkston had the low team score with a 324 followed by Sioux Falls Christian with a 354, but as Dells Coach Jeff Devorak reported to Big Sioux Media the team played well finishing in 3rd place with a 370.
“What a beautiful day! Whenever we’ve played Baker Crossing in the past, the wind was howling and the course was extremely difficult. 80 degrees and little wind made for a great day as well as some solid golf. Lexie and Brianna stayed on track shooting an 85 and 86 respectively placing them 6th and 8th. Lexie’s putting was much higher than she’d like but she is striking the ball very well right now. Brianna had trouble off the tee but scrambled to score very well after that. It’ll be exciting to see how low they can go when they put it all together. Emily bounced back after a tough opening hole to finished just outside the top 15 – I was very proud of her resilience. Hannah had a solid round and will continue to lower her scores as she cleans up her game around the green. April Tomes rounded out the varsity 5 and she made nice strides in her putting. Parkston was unbeatable, but again we are within striking distance of SFC. Against this field on this course, I was very proud of our performance”.
Individually Lexie Pierson had an 85, Brianna Davis recorded an 86, Emily Haak shot a 95, Hannah Hammer a 104, and April Tomes a 123. Monday, May 7th, the golfers will be at Rocky Run as Dell Rapids will host the BSC Invite. Tee time is 9:00 am.
