Western struggles at Lakes Conference tournament

SPIRIT LAKE-The weather was ideal for a Lakes Conference girls’ golf tournament Monday, May 8, but, unfortunately, the course at Indian Hills Golf Club did not agree with the Wolfpack golfers.

Western Christian finished the day with a score of 434, good for seventh place. Emmetsburg took the tournament title with 363. The Wolfpack were led individually by Megan Hengeveld with an 18-hole round of 106. Jaycie Van Zee also had an 18-hole round of 106. Coach Bill Harmsen said the rough grass and the quick greens resulted in a higher score than his team desired.

“We struggled much of the day. The rough was very long and thick, which resulted in extra shots due to lost balls. The greens were fast, which took us a while to adjust to as well,” he said. “We didn’t finish as well as we would have liked, but we had a great day for golf.”

Wolfpack place second in LeMars

LEMARS-The Western Christian girls’ golf team took on Willow Creek Golf Course Thursday for a Lakes Conference meet and finished the night with positive results.

The Wolfpack finished second out of three teams with 206 strokes. LeMars was the meet champion with 193 strokes. Aubrey Kooima led Western Christian with a nine-hole round of 48. Jaycie Van Zee was second on the team with a 50.

“We played well today at Willow Creek. We played the red course this time and I thought the girls managed the course very well,” said Wolfpack coach Bill Harmsen. “All six of our girls shot well with Aubrey Kooima leading the way with a 48. This was a great meet to springboard into regional action at Landsmeer Monday (May 15).”
