Girls Varsity Golf Heading to State

The CHS Girls golf team competed in Colby at the GWAC League tournament, October 5.  They placed 2nd with a team score of 396.  For the first time in 5 years, the team has scored below 400.  

Three of the six girls shot a 96.   Brayclen Lynn, Jenna Seabolt, and Morgan Herkelman went to a shootout, playing another hole.  Seabolt and Lynn tied again and went on to hole 8, where Lynn’s putt fell short, and Seabolt came out on top.  The shoot out determined the individual placements, with Seabolt taking 4th,  Lynn 5th, and Herkelman 6th.

Coach John Mowry had this to say about his team,  “This has been an incredible season for our team.  In past years, we have had good teams, but this year, we have different chemistry.  We have had more competition for positions within the team while supporting one another in the process.   We are very balanced in our scoring, and one person doesn’t feel they have to carry the whole team’s weight on their shoulders.  Most importantly, we get along and enjoy one another without losing our competitive edge.  This chemistry has led to playing other golf after practices and on weekends, which has paid significant dividends to our success and continuing maturation as the season has progressed. “

Regionals

October 12 was a day to remember for the Lady Jays golf team. They battled their hearts out. With lots of emotions flying and tears rolling down faces, the girls’ golf team qualified for state. The Girls shot a 397 and were the runner-ups at Colby’s 321a regionals. It was a tough competition, and the girls played very well, with Lynn being the top shooter, shooting her best score of the season of a 95, and placing 4th individually, Herkelman placed 7th and Seabolt 10th. 

 Seabolt says, “I feel very proud and grateful for the honor of making it to state. Our team has put in all of hard work and dedication into making it to state. I know that we can play a lot better than we did at regionals, and we can play a lot better and hopefully place at state.”
