Girls Golfers Finish Debut 2008 Season by Sending Freshman to State
Harris Posts Second-Lowest Freshman Score at State Tournament
On October 7 the Wahoo Girls Golf team returned to action taking part in Class C District-1 at Table Creek Golf Course in Nebraska City.
In windy and cold conditions freshman Emma Harris led the way carding a 99, which was good for 5th place. The 5th place finish qualified Harris for State.
“Emma played better than her score would indicate. Besides starting off with a 10 and finishing with a 9, she played some impressive golf,” said Head Coach Curtis Carlson.
Freshman Nicole Pearson carded a 120 and junior Ali Anderson recorded a 122. Also competing for the Warriors were junior Hillary Fick with a 132 and sophomore Tina Robinson with a 138. As a team the Warriors finished 7th out of 10 teams with a 479.
At State Emma Harris battled cold, wet, windy conditions to finish in a tie for 30th place. On day one, Harris hit her tee shots as well as she had all year. She struggled with her second shots, which led her recording a 102.
“She was hitting spots all day and was really getting her drives out there,” Carlson commented.
On day two she played in a steady rain and was able to still record a 103.
“She had the second lowest freshman total in the tournament, which was a great start for her career. It was an excellent learning experience that she will be able to build on for the future. We have made a goal for next year of having the team qualify for State. Hopefully with hard work we will be able to accomplish that goal,” said Carlson.
