McDonald County Press - - SPORTS - Rick Peck

It’s taken less than a sea­son for the McDonald County High school girls’ golf team to make a name for it­self.

In the pro­gram’s inau­gu­ral sea­son, sopho­more Lily All­man led the Lady Mus­tangs to a third-place fin­ish at the Big 8 Con­fer­ence Cham­pi­onships held on Sept. 24 at Marsh­field Golf Course.

All­man also fin­ished in third place in the in­di­vid­ual race be­hind a pair of Springfield Catholic play­ers.

Catholic fresh­man Rea­gan Zi­bil­ski, who McDonald County coach Kyle Fields said, “We’ll see on TV some­day,” shot a five-un­der-par 64 to beat team­mate Kayla Pfitzner, who was also un­der par at 68.

All­man was next, in third, with a 74 to keep Catholic from tak­ing the top three places. Catholic’s Kyleigh Pfitzner was fourth with a 75. Fifth went to Brooke Wag­ner of Lo­gan-Rogersville with a 78, fol­lowed by Grace Palmer, Ne­vada, 81, An­nie Strong, Lo­gan Rogersville, 86, Emma Strong, Lo­gan-Rogersville, Ellen Moore, Catholic, 88, and Janna Man­tala, 90, Lo­gan-Rogersville, to round out the top 10.

Catholic shot an in­cred­i­ble 295 to win the team ti­tle by 46 strokes over Lo­gan-Rogersville. McDonald County was third with 397, fol­lowed by Mount Ver­non with a 415, Marsh­field 426, Ne­vada 437, Hol­lis­ter 447 and Seneca 460.

McDonald County was at Mount Ver­non on Sept. 26 and at Ne­vada on Sept. 27 be­fore en­ter­ing dis­tricts on Oct. 1 in Carthage.
