The varsity girls golf team played at the Metro League Tournament on Wednesday and defeated Linden by a score of 177-212 at Spring Meadows golf course.

As the tournament kicked off, temperatures dipped to 53 degrees. Through the poor conditions that harped on the golfers, the girls were still able to pull through and defeat Linden.

“For the last two hours there was steady rain without breaks,” sophomore Angela Hanners said. “It was way more difficult to get distance on our shots, as well as get the ball off of the ground because of the wet grass.”

The girls fared well against Metro League opponents throughout the season, which keep them calm, as well as motivate them for the tournament.

“I think our team performed very well,” Horning said. “We all came into the tournament confident because we have had a pretty good season against the Metro League teams. After we all came in with our scores, it was obvious that we all played the best we could.”

Although the team was unable to win the trophy, Hanners was proud of her teammates and encouraged by their efforts.
“I think the team performed well and they stepped up and gave their best when it counted,” sophomore Angela Hanners said. “Even through the tough weather conditions they didn’t let that distract that from being focused and giving their best efforts throughout the competition.”
