Lady golfers fall to Cards, beat Rebels

The Blue Earth Area Buccaneer girls golf team knew it would not be an easy task; taking on the powerful Fairmont Cardinals last Tuesday afternoon on the Riverside Town and Country Golf Club course.

At the end of the meet, the Bucs had lost by over 50 strokes to the Cards, 396-449.

But, there was something for the Buc linksters to feel good about.

“Fairmont is the conference favorite,” BEA coach Al Cue says. “We knew going in that it wasn’t about getting a win, but was about trying to improve.”

And, the coach says, the team did improve.

“Our 449 score tonight is 25 strokes better than our first 18-hole meet of the season,” Cue points out. “We have a long way to go, but progress is being made.”

BEA was led by Autumn Drake who carded a 96, giving her a tie with Tori Edgington from Fairmont for medalist honors.

Other Buccaneer scores which added to the team total were Allie Curtis with a 106, Aeli Olson with a 122 and Emily Davids with a 125.

Other scores included Natali Fellows who carded a 133 and Anna Aukes who shot a 136.
