Buc girls take 10th, lose by 8 strokes to MCW
The Blue Earth Area Buccaneer girls golf team came in with a score of 455 at the Fairmont Cardinal Invitational on Saturday, May 7.
The tally placed the Bucs in 10th place in the 13-team tournament.
Fairmont won their own invitational with a score of 364. Windom came in second with 391.
“This score was a bit disappointing,” says Buc head coach Al Cue. “It was probably the best weather day we’ve had this spring.”
The Buc mentor says it was the short game that hurt the girls scores.
“The greens were fast and we putted poorly,” he comments. “We will continue to work on this and improve.”
Autumn Drake led the way for BEA shooting a 99 (52-47). Allie Curtis was close behind with a 103 (53-50).
Aeli Olson carded a 124 (66-58) for the Bucs, while teammates Emily Davids and Natali Fellows each had a 129. Davids shot 62-67, while Fellows came in with a 66-63 round.
Kali Viland also played for the Bucs, shooting 131 (66-65).
MCW 217, BEA 225
Despite having the meet’s medalist on their side, the Blue Earth Area Buccaneer girls golf team fell to Martin County West on Friday, May 6 by a score of 217-225.
Allie Curtis fired a 45 to lead the Buccaneers and take the medalist honors.
“This was a very good score for Allie,” Coach Al Cue says. “She played wisely, using her driver sparingly on a short course.”
Autumn Drake added a 51 to BEA’s total, while Kali Viland shot a 62.
Aeli Olson, Emily Davids and Natali Fellows all carded identical 67 rounds for the final fourth score.
“Overall, not a very good team score for us,” Cue says. “But, we’ll keep working on improving.”
