The MHS Golf team opened its season with the SVL Pre-Valley tournament at the Saginaw Valley Golf Course. Scoring for the Chemics were: Meggie Gandy with a 87, Megan Phillips with a 110 Allison Shepard with a 114 and, Katelyn Corrion with a 116.. Also participating in the match were Julia Gaffke and Natalie Gaffke The team total of 427 was good for 7th place in the 12 team field. The 427 was also 14 strokes better than what the team shot last year in the pre-Valley tournament.
This was a great first tournament for our team. it’s one thing to compete against each other in practice and quite another to play under tournament conditions against golfers from other SVL schools. One highlight for the team was Meggie’s 87 which tied for 5th best individually. Also, Megan Phillips shot a 48 on the front which was a great sign. I’m proud of how all of the girls played and am confident that they will continue to improve as the season progresses.
The Chemics will compete in an SVL match on Tuesday August 28th at 3:00 at Sandy Ridge and will also participate in the Altimore Invitational and the Patriot Cup next week.
