The Trojans had a match at Pine Lake in Eldora on Monday April 28 that was not finished due to rain and storms.
As for the girls, Paige VanDyk was the overall medalist with a 38 and runner-up was Carrie Cibula with a 42.
"I was really happy with Carrie's score tonight, and I know she was too. This is a personal best for her, and she should be very proud", said girls coach Melinda McDowell.
According to McDowell, it was a rough night for some of our other girls, but stated that golf is a mental game.
"If they can brush off those bad holes and look ahead to the next shot or the next hole, they will be fine. Hopefully we can show that on Monday and get down to our goal of below 200", said McDowell.
