Girls head to state
Published: Thursday, May 15th, 2014
At the beginning of the golf season, the two girls on the team made it a goal to compete at the state meet. At Monday’s Region 4A meet in Spearfish, that goal became a reality after both girls placed in the top 18.
At the regional qualifer, Marlee Schneider shot 123, which earned her 15th place, while Kassidy Adam shot 128, earning her 18th place. The top 18 golfers earned a spot at the state “A” meet in Spearfish, which will be held Monday, May 19, and Tuesday, May 20.
“They were stoked and bouncing off the walls,” said coach Royed Hollick. “I gave them a hug. I’m so proud of them.”
Hollick was happy with Adam’s improvement on the Spearfish course, since last time she played she shot 132.
“Her hip was bothering her, but she wasn’t going to quit,” he said. “She played through the pain. She really wanted to go to state.”
In preparation for the state meet, the team will continue to work on what they’ve been working on: the short game.
“Hopefully (the weather) will stay decent so we can get out on the course and play a few holes,” Hollick said. “We’re really going to focus on what we’ve been doing. It’s important for us to stay consistent.”
