McDonald County Press - - SPORTS - Rick Peck

McDon­ald County sopho­more Lily All­man shot an 84 to fin­ish in a tie for fifth at the Spring­field Catholic Girls Golf Tour­na­ment held on Mon­day at the Payne Stewart Golf Course in Spring­field.

The tour­na­ment was the first-ever com­pe­ti­tion for a McDon­ald County girls’ golf team. All­man and team­mate Anna Mead com­peted with the boys’ golf team last spring.

All­man was bat­tling three Catholic play­ers for in­di­vid­ual hon­ors but took an 8 on the par 4, 15th hole to end her hopes of a top-three fin­ish.

Catholic’s Rea­gan Zi­bil­ski won the tour­na­ment with a three-over-par 73. Her Catholic team­mates Kayla Pfitzner (78) and Kyleigh Pfitzner (79) were sec­ond and third, while Brooke Wag­ner of Lo­gan Rogersville shot an 81 for fourth.

All­man’s 84 earned her a fifth-place tie with Mad­die Jenk­ins of Ozark.

Mead, also a sopho­more, shot a 124. The two sopho­mores were the only McDon­ald County play­ers com­pet­ing in the var­sity tour­na­ment.

Catholic won the team ti­tle with a 334 to­tal, while Ozark was sec­ond with a 361.

McDon­ald County had three play­ers, all fresh­men, com­pete in the ju­nior var­sity ex­hi­bi­tion on a par 3 course.

The Lady Mus­tangs were led by Jolie Stipp with a 91. Kylea Meador shot 95 and Lun­dyn Trudeau had a 107.

McDon­ald County’s next match is set for Sept. 4 in Marsh­field.
