A windy day at Meadow Creek Golf Course, host course for Sioux Valley and the Regional Golf Meet in 2 weeks, proved to be a challenging day for the Lady Quarriers. Coach Jeff Devorak told Big Sioux Media, “the wind really blew today and kept the scores a bit higher than I thought they might be. In spite of that, Bri and Lexie continued to play well. I thought April Tomes golfed pretty well as our 5th varsity player today; it will be fun to watch her scores continue to come down. Our focus today was to familiarize ourselves with the course as our Region is here in about 2 weeks. We tried to keep good notes on where and where not to end up as well as possible club selections – hopefully that pays off at Regions”.
The Lady Quarriers had low team score with 393, one stroke better than Aberdeen Roncalli. Lexie Pierson shot 87 while Brianna Davis hit 89, but despite the good scores from the two Lady Quarriers, Medalist Honors went to Roncalli’s Allison Thielsen with an 85. Hannah Hammer of Dell Rapids hit a 102, one stroke better than 7th place finisher for Roncalli, Brianna Weber, allowing the Lady Quarriers to capture the team win.
Next up for Dell Rapids will be Thursday’s Sioux Falls Christian Invitational, another strong foe of the Lady Quarriers. Tee time is 9am Thursday.
