The Truman girls golf team bounced back after a shaky season-opening match on Wednesday with a win on Thursday.
The Patriots fired a 180 to top Blue Springs South’s 192 at the par-30 Drumm Farm Executive Course Thursday.
Lauren Floyd shot 40 to earn medalist honors and Holly Emory was the runner-up with a 44 to lead Truman to the win.
“It feels great to bounce back with a win at home,” Patriots coach Joey Penner said. “We practice on the Executive Course a lot. It's a track we're very familiar with. This win gives our girls some much needed confidence going into the Independence Invitational tournament (Friday at Drumm Farm).
Katelyn Bragg shot 47, followed by Salma Villegas (49) and Katelyn Lane (53) to complete Truman’s scoring.
Maddie Brennaman shot 45 and Caitlyn Shelnutt posted a 46 to lead Blue Springs South. Ashley Humm (50), Georgia Davenport (51) and Princess Simmons (52) completed the Jaguars’ card.
Blue Springs South won the junior varsity match 202-212.
On Wednesday, the Patriots shot 243 on the par-36 front nine of Drumm Farm Golf Club to finish behind Kearney (205) and Grain Valley (216).
Taylor HIleman and Shelby KImbrough were low for Grain Valley at 49, followed by Laney Rose (56), Brittney McKay (62) and Sydney Williams (63).
Katie Wheeler shot 53 to lead Truman and was followed by Lane (61), Villegas (64), Floyd 65 and Bragg (66).
Grain Valley started its season on Monday in the Platte County Tournament at Shiloh Springs Golf Course, shooting 446 to finish fifth out of 13 teams. Kimbrough finished seventh individually.
