The golf girls stand together in victory after placing at the KSHAA state tournament.

Tuesday, Oct. 16, the golf team competed in the state tournament. This was played in Hutchinson at Carey Park Golf Course. Originally the meet was to be held Monday, Oct. 15, but was delayed due to snow on the course.

The team placed fourth overall, and Lindsey Lewellen (12) placed seventh as an individual.

Along with the state team was Kyra Carrell (9) who had some mixed feelings about the tournament.

“State was good, but I felt like I was under a lot of pressure,” Carrell said.

This was the second time the team has ever gone to state. Lewellen and Gracie Johnston (12)  have been part of both qualifying teams.

Sarah Price (11) competed as an individual at state her sophomore year and placed 29th.

Prior to competing at state, the girls placed second overall at regionals. This meet was held Monday, Oct. 8 at Wellington Golf Course.

“The course at Wellington is a very challenging and unique golf course. It’s a very tough test for our team,” head coach Danny Lundberg said.

Due to rainy weather, score was only taken for nine holes, as opposed to the usual 18. Still, the girls prevailed with a score of 211 compared to Winfield’s winning score of 206.

“Our team is loaded this year, and they’re all really good,” Price said.

Four golfers placed individually. Lewellen placed fifth and Price placed sixth.  Kally Oneyear (12) placed ninth and Johnston placed 10th.

Girls golf has had a tough season but overall prevailed at their state tournament.
