The Vermillion girls’ golf team hosted the Region 2A Golf Meet last Thursday at the Bluffs Golf Course.
The Tanagers had four golfers qualify individually of the 39 competing. Vermillion also qualified as a team by placing third of the seven teams in the region.
“Regions went pretty well,” said eighth-grader Megan Brady. “I was not doing my best but still qualified individually. As a team, we made it to state as third in our region. It was close, but I was expecting our team to do pretty well. We have been improving all season so I knew we would do well.”
Vermillion earned the bronze as a team with 380 points, punching their ticket to the state meet in Aberdeen.
West Central won the region meet with 355, and Canton was the runner-up with 379.
Four Tanagers also placed in the top-25 individually.
Junior Alex Carr led the way for the Tanagers with a 76. A. Carr shot 39 on the front nine and 37 on the back nine to place second individually at the region meet.
Freshmen Kensie Mulheron and Mackenzie Brady both shot a 99 to tie for 12th. Mulheron shot a 48 on the front nine and 51 on the back. Mackenzie Brady shot a 47 and 52.
Megan Brady placed 21st with a 106. She shot a 54, then 52.
Seventh-grader Stephanie Carr shot 120. S. Carr hit a 57 on the front nine and a 63 on the back nine.
“I am looking forward to playing with my team,” said Megan Brady about heading to state. “Also, I am looking forward to having fun with my team and the people I play with.”
The Tanagers had this week to prepare for state. The State Tournament for Class A is Monday and Tuesday, June 3 and 4, in Aberdeen at the Lee Park Golf Course.
