The Vermillion girls’ golf team went to the Class A State Golf Tournament in Aberdeen this past Monday and Tuesday.
The Tanagers brought a team to compete against 15 schools and over 90 girls.
“I really enjoyed getting to hang out with the team at state and create a bond with everyone on the team,” said eighth-grader Megan Brady. “My favorite part of the season was making memories with everyone at golf meets and at practice.”
After day one, Vermillion was 11th as a team at 410. The Tanagers shot a 337 by the end of round two to improve and finish 10th at the state tournament with a total of 747.
“Even though it was tough competing on a course I’ve never competed on, it made me want to work harder to learn all about the course to do good at state,” said Megan Brady.
West Central won overall with a 351 in round one and 352 in round two, winning with a 703 total.
Junior Alex Carr placed fifth at state golf after two rounds, totally 158. Carr finished Monday in seventh with an 85. She shot a 73 on day two to improve to fifth individually.
Megan Brady finished the first day with a 105. She shot a 93 in the second round to place 44th with a 198 combined score.
Freshman Kensie Mulheron shot a 106 in round one and a 93 in the second round. Mulheron finished 47th with a total of 199.
Seventh-grader Stephanie Carr shot 114 on day one and a 118 on day two. She ended with a total score of 232 to place 81st.
Freshman Mackenzie Brady shot 117 in the first round at the state golf tournament. She shot 120 in round two to finish 84th with a 237 total.
“Now that we have the experience of state, one of the goals is to just become better at the game in general,” said Megan Brady. “Work on the small things that count. Also, making it to state again as a team next year and get some of our teammates to come home with some metals.”
