On September 29th the Ste. Genevieve golf team was at it again with another triad match. The team came in third on the back nine par 36 at Kimbeland Country Club with a score of 224. Cape Notre Dame barely edged them out with a score of 220, and Jackson won the day with a score of 164. Head Coach Rachel McDaniel noted, “The back nine at Kimbeland provided new challenges for the girls who have never played the back nine there until today. I love this course because it does require good course management to score well and putting the driver in the bag for a couple of holes.”
Addie Taylor led her team with a score of 51. McDaniel commented, “Taylor had a breakout round. She really thought she was going to break 50 today and when I saw her she was hitting the ball well. Addie is really hitting her stride and at the right time in the season.”
Boston Williams was next shooting a 56 after a rough outing the day before. “I was glad to see Williams bounce back after a tough round at home the day before. She looked more comfortable and confident over the ball and mentally was out for revenge,” said McDaniel.
Brooke Turner shot a 58 while Etta Heller shot a 59. Their coach noted, “Turner and Heller turned in some solid rounds. I know both said they felt like they left strokes out there but felt good about their ability to fight for every shot.”
Lani Yamnitz and Regean Naeger each had decent rounds. Yamnitz scored a 61 and Naeger a 65. “Yamnitz and Naeger had respectable rounds. Both girls are still learning how far their clubs go and learning course management.”
On the JV side, the team took second in their triad, recording a 261, but Jackson dominated with a 189 to win the day.
Madison Vaeth led her club with a 63. “Vaeth had a good showing in her first away match of the season. This course plays to (her) strengths. She isn’t a long hitter but she keeps the ball in play,” Said McDaniel.
Maggie Myracle and Ava Meyer each posted a 64. McDaniel mentioned, “Myracle and Meyer struggled to find a rhythm on the course. The long game was giving them both issues and they were trying to save strokes with their short games-which was working for the most part.”
Rounding out the JV squad were Sydney Eisenbeis and Mia Schweigert who shot a 70 and 74 respectively.
