Ladies Push Through Inaugural Golf Tournament
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.
