GRINNELL - The STC girls golf team traveled to Grinnell on Tuesday April 15. The meet was held at Oakland Acres Golf Club. While their goal as a team was to be under 200 according to coach Melinda McDowell, the girls were just shy at 205 for a final score. "Paige shot a one over par 36 to be the overall winner. Number 8 was a blind par 5 on a hill with water on the right and out of bounds on the left, so that killed some of their scores. The girls have been pretty consistent with their scores so far, though, which is a good thing. Being only our second meet there's definitely still room for improvement. I would like to get the 3rd and 4th scores to be consistently in the mid to low 50's", stated McDowell.
The golfers next meet is Friday April 25 at the Tama Toledo Country Club. It will be a co-ed meet against Grundy Center starting at 4:00 p.m.
ACKLEY - On Thursday April 17 the STC girls golf team traveled to the Ackley Rec club for a meet against AGWSR. The course is a par 32.
"Our goal as a team was to be under 200, and we did that with a 195. Our 3rd and 4th scores were in the 50's, and I'm hoping they can do that on a longer course", said coach McDowell.
Paige VanDyk was the overall winner with a 38 and Carrie Cibula received a medal for runner-up with a 47.
More STC results include: Laurel Scharweber, 51; Erin Clayton, 59; Trisha Walz, 63; and Shellene Lacina, 83.
