MSU Golf Relays @ Stewart GC - Springfield
The Waynesville Lady Tigers participated in the MSU Relays Golf Tournament at the Bill and Payne Stewart Golf Course in Springfield today. The course was in the best tournament shape it has been in for the last 3 years, so we were able to play the ball down to get practice for our upcoming District tournaments. The tournament was won by Springfield Catholic with a team total of 370, narrowly edging out West Plains by 1 stroke. The individual medalist was Amber Wilson of Camdenton with a 2 under par, 69.
Senior Victoria Hooker led the Lady Tigers with her career low round of 82. All the other Lady Tigers also came in with their personal bests. Junior Paiton Quinones 116, Senior Dara Huynh 129, and Junior Brielle Amick 135. I set a goal for each girl and a team goal of 460 before play and we came within 2 strokes of meeting that goal at 462. It is the best that all the players have played at one time this season as we have improved 29 strokes over the last team tournament. The girls chipped and putted better today on greens that were similar to our home course. I didn't see too many putts get away from them as we have in previous matches.
I have been setting lofty goals for Paiton Quinones each match to try to challenge her to score better. She has played well, but hasn't been able to get her scores down. Today, she was more consistent and was able to achieve her best career score.
