Blue Springs senior golfer Lauren Muller easily outdistanced the competition in the Independence Invitational Friday.
Muller fired an 86 to win medalist honors by seven strokes over the runner-up, Maya McVey of Blue Springs South.
South, however, edged the Wildcats in the team score, taking third with a 424 total to Blue Springs’ 427.
Raymore-Peculiar captured the team title at 411 and Lee’s Summit North took second at 414. Truman (463) was fifth, St. Michael the Archangel Catholic (465) took sixth, Fort Osage (510) was ninth and William Chrisman (516) finished 10th.
All five of Lee’s Summit North’s players earned medals for finishing in the top 15 – Harrison Clemmons (95, third), Mimi Brown (104, eighth), Lindsay Rowlett (107, 12th), Cassey Kinman (108, 13th) and Natalie Bruce (109, 14th).
McVey (93) and Maddie Brennaman (96, fifth) each earned medals for Blue Springs South. Dilynn Jones (113) and Ashley Costello (122) completed the Jaguars’ score card.
Julianna Marshall (109, 14th) was Blue Springs’ other lone medal winner.
Truman had a pair of medal winners with Kaetlyn Bragg (106, 11th) and Katie Wheeler (109, 14th).
Lily Taylor shot 112 and Anna Coke and Jaisen Guier each shot 117 to lead St. Michael.
Senior Carrie Robinson led the way for Chrisman with a 116 for 22nd.
“We played short handed as Senior Kailey Guardiola was out do to shoulder injury so we had to rely more heavily on our newcomers,” Chrisman coach John Beaman said. “I was pleased with the effort of all of our girls, returning letter winner Zoe McConnell, and our two newcomers Josephine Shaw and Shelby White. A highlight of the day for Shelby was a birdie on the par-3 third hole.”
Ashlyn Buntin shot 118 to pace Fort Osage.
