Girls win triangular, split duals
The Buccaneer girls golf team won a triangular meet at Rose Lake Golf course last Tuesday.
The Bucs, as a team, carded a 191. GHEC scored a team total 270, while Lake Crystal-Welcome Memorial had an incomplete.
Leading the way for BEA was Jessica Skaare who scored a nine hole total 44, which gave her medalist honors.
Autumn Drake was second for the Bucs, coming in with a 46. Olivia Skaare tallied a 50, and Allie Curtis a 51 to fill in BEA’s team total.
The other two varsity scores were a 54 by Sam Hogstad, and a 55 from Tessa Huber.
“The girls played well at this meet,” Coach Al Cue says. “A 191 is a good score for us. Hopefully, we will continue to improve and get that score down into the 180s.”
Cue had high praise for Drake.
“Autumn really played well, just like she had the day before in a JV meet,” he says. “Jessica (Skaare) was her usual solid self.”
This week the Bucs play at Belle Plaine on Monday, and at Fairmont on Saturday.
BEA 395, Fairmont 420
The Buccaneer girls golf team defeated both the elements and the Fairmont Cardinals last Monday.
BEA defeated Fairmont 395 to 420 on a rainy Interlaken Course.
“This was a decent score for us on a rainy day,” Coach Al Cue says. “Interlaken plays pretty long when it’s wet and there were a lot of tough pin placements.”
Jessica Skaare was medalist for the meet, shooting a 90 (46-44) for the 18 holes.
Morgan Dickman was second for the Buc squad, coming in with a 97 (49-47). Tessa Huber shot a 102 (49-53) for BEA.
Olivia Skaare and Samantha Hogstad each had a 107 for the round. Skaare shot 53-54, while Hogstad had a 55-52 for her score.
Allie Curtis rounded out the varsity scores by shooting a 114 (56-58).
“We are able to shoot lower than this,” Cue says. “But we got the win and it puts us 4-0 in the conference and in the driver’s seat at this point in the season.”
This week the girls travel to Belle Plaine on Monday, and back to Fairmont on Saturday for an invitational meet.
Albert Lea 200, BEA 206
The Blue Earth Area buccaneer girls golf team lost by six strokes to Albert Lea on April 16.
The Bucs shot a 206, but were bested by Albert Lea’s score of 200.
“This was not a real good score for us,” Buc mentor Al Cue says. “But it was a wide open course and it was windy.”
The Bucs were led by Jessica Skaare who shot a 46. Olivia Skaare added a 52.
Morgan Dickman and Tessa Huber each shot a 54 to add to the Bucs total.
Rounding out the varsity scores were Mackenzie Lein with 54 and Autumn Drake with 56.
“Albert Lea is a very good team and we played them pretty close,” Cue says.
