The Grantsburg Girl’s Golf Team participated in the Regional Tournament at the Frederic Golf Course this past week. The weather was not cooperating at the golf course with a chilly 47 degrees and rain beginning to fall by the end of 18 holes. Even with the cold fall weather, the girls powered through and played their hearts out.
“As a first-year program, we didn’t know what to expect but our girls really impressed us with their ability to actively compete against other teams in the area,” said Pirates’ coach Caitlin Olson.
Amy Gilhoi ended the tournament with a final result of 130 (61/69), Abby Alderman ended with a score of 126 (64/62), Caitlin Tollefson had a score of 100 (54/46), Heather Berglund finished with 118 (65/53) and Amber Wedin had the final score of 128 (60/68).
The team as a whole placed fifth out of nine teams. Only the top four teams qualified to move onto the Sectional Tournament, but freshman Caitlin Tollefson qualified for Sectionals as an individual. She will be playing in the Sectional Tournament at Pheasant Hills Oct. 8.
