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.”

“We played well today at Willow Creek.
