Golfers compete at region meet
Published: Thursday, May 16th, 2013
The girls golf team braved the rain and cold at the Region 4A meet in Belle Fourche on Thursday, May 9. While the regional title went to Hot Springs, the Wildcats gained more experience playing 18 holes at the varsity level.
“They did great,” said Royed Hollick, coach. “They wanted to play junior varsity but couldn’t. I know they weren’t happy with their scores but I was. This was their second time playing all 18 holes and I was happy with their performance.”
Cassidy Adam shot a 165, Leah Zacher was 144 and Elizabeth Watland finished at 129. The winning golfer score 82.
“They didn’t give up,” Hollick said. “It was rainy and cold for the first four holes, but it cleared up for the last 14 holes.”
Hollick said with time and more practice the girls would improve their game.
“This is only their second time at this level so they’re going to need more experience,” he said. “They’re already getting great experience from the season and competing at the region meet.”
Hollick nor the girls were concerned about going to the state meet next week, but instead enjoyed the season and experience.
“I want them to know what to expect over the next couple of years so they won’t be nervous,” Hollick said. “It won’t be such a big deal to go in and play. They’ve got the attitudes and basics down and they’re only going to improve.”
The last meet for the season will be Wednesday, May 15, at 4 p.m. The Wildcats will play nine holes against St. Thomas More and Hot Springs.
