The girls golf team placed sixth at Lawrence Country Club, and were two strokes away from having sole position of fourth, on Monday, Oct. 3. Junior Bella Hadden shot an 88, and placed twelfth overall. Senior Meg Green and sophomore Sarah Lawson tied at 92, placing seventeenth. Senior Grace Van Inwegen also broke 100.

Junior Bella Hadden describes the course as challenging and links this to why many of the golfers had rough patches throughout the day.

“It is a pretty difficult course, there was a lot of wind,” Hadden said.

Sophomore Sarah Lawson shot her personal best of the season on Monday and feels as though she will only improve from there.

“For that course, and how I’ve never been there before, I thought I played pretty well,” Lawson said.

Hadden reflects on the scores from Monday, and predicts that it will mean success concerning the upcoming regionals.

“Having four scores that were below 100 makes us pretty confident going into regionals to qualify for state,” Hadden said.

Along with golf, Hadden participates in cross country as well. Hadden realizes that this does take time away from practice, but notes that she is still able to perform well at golf tournaments.

“Going into it I assumed [cross country] was going to raise my golf scores, but I’ve really improved my mental game in golf since last year. Because of this, I’ve still been able to improve on last year’s scores at golf tournaments,” Hadden said.

The girls golf team will participate in regionals this week on Monday, Oct. 10 at Lake Quivira.
