Lauren Muller earmed medalist honors after firing a 39, but it wasn’t enough to give Blue Springs the win in a Suburban Big Six Conference four-team meet Thursday at Adam’s Pointe Golf Club.
Lee’s Summit won with a 189, Blue Springs was second with a 197, Lee’s Summit North was third with a 218 and Blue Springs South was fourth with a 263.
Rounding out the scoring for the Wildcats were Juliana Marshall with a 49, Kenzee Peterman with a 53, Lauren Mack with a 56, Lucy Beckenbach with a 61 and Lauren Hendrix with a 62.
For the Broncos, Harrison Clemmons and Cassey Kinman led the way as they both shot a 51, Natalie Bryce and Mimi Brown both had a 58 and Meah Piedmount and Kaite Pace both shot a 59.
For South, Ashley Humm shot a 56, Lexi Frederick had a 68, Ashley Castillo had a 69, Addi Frederick and Caity Shelnutt both shot a 70.
On Wednesday, Muller fired a 43 to earn medalist honors as the host Wildcats totaled 198 to easily outdistance the Lee’s Summit Tigers’ 228 at par-36 Adams Pointe Golf Club.
“Our girls are really improving and hopefully will come on strong in the next couple of weeks as we wind down our season,” Blue Springs coach Jill Courter said.
Julianna Marshall and Kenzee Peterman each shot 51, and Lauren Mack posted a 53 to round out Blue Springs’ scoring.
TRUMAN TAKES SECOND, CHRISMAN THIRD: The Patriots took second while the Bears were third in a three-team meet Thursday at Heart of America Golf Course.
Raytown won with a 224 in the Suburban Middle Seven match, Truman shot a 226 and Chrisman shot a 244.
Truman’s Katie Wheeler earned medalist honors with a 50 and Kaitlyn Bragg was the runner up with a 51. Rounding out the scoring for the Patriots were Ali Houcek with a 59 and Molly Bradshaw with a 66.
“It's pretty frustrating to lose by two strokes, especially when I believe we played our best golf of the week,” Truman coach Joey Penner said. “Playing at Heart is good for the girls because of the challenging greens. I think our putting improved today which will hopefully give us some confidence going into next week.”
For Chrisman, Josephine Shaw led the way with a 56, Kerri Robinson shot a 57, Zoe McConnel shot a 63 and Shelby White had a 68
On Wednesday, Kaitlyn Bragg fired a 40 to earn medalist honors but Truman fell 183-189 to Raytown at the par-30 Drumm Farm Golf Club Executive Course.
“This is where we get into trouble with our putts,” Patriots coach Joey Penner said. “I don't think we played as well as we did yesterday and it was because of play around the greens. I did not see a single hole where one of our girls came away with the necessary two putts to make par. If we are going to compete at the next level we have to figure out how to get better with the money club.”
Ali Houcek (48), Cate Maxey (49) and Molly Bradshaw (52) rounded out Truman’s scoring.
HOLE-IN-ONE: Blue Springs South sophomore Dilynn Jones notched her first hole-in-one during a scramble match against Lee’s Summit North Wednesday.
Jones got the ace on the par-3 No. 4 hole at Lakewood Oaks Golf Club.
Jones’ group tied for first place out of South’s five teams in the scramble event.
