In the second to last meet of the season, the Custer girls golf team was able to compete at home in the Black Hills Conference tournament on Friday, May 2. 
In the 18-hole tournament, Kassidy Adam shot a 135 while Marlee Schneider shot 117.
“Kassidy’s hip was hurting so she had some trouble and Marlee was having a hard time in the first nine with her drive, which she normally doesn’t,” coach Royed Hollick said. “Marlee did better on the second half.”
The lowest score of the tournament was 82.
“They competed in the whole thing and they are improving,” Hollick said. “Marlee improves each time.”
Hollick was also pleased with how the girls continued playing through the weather, which went from sunny to windy and chilly.
“It started out decent then turned cold and windy,” he said. “It eventually got better, but half the day was nasty. But they stuck with it. I’m pleased with that.”
This week, the girls will compete once again in Spearfish, where both the Region 4A and State A meets will be held. While Hollick doesn’t believe the girls will make it to the state meet, he still wants Adam and Schneider to play on the Spearfish course.
“They’re more familiar with the course this time and should be able to know what to expect,” he said.
During practices this week, Hollick said the team will focus on hitting with longer clubs, as well as putting and the short game.
“That’s where we win tournaments,” he said. “Both girls have improved in pitching and putting. They’ve had some good putts where the ball lipped out at the hole. They’re getting closer and learning to read the putt better.”
The girls Region 4A meet will be in Spearfish Thursday, May 8, at 10 a.m.
