Girls come in 4th at NU
The Blue Earth Area Buccaneer girls golf team placed fourth in the South Central Conference golf tournament held last Monday.
The Bucs shot a 437 team score on the New Ulm course.
Fairmont won the conference with a 387. Waseca came in second at 406, New Ulm third with 420.
Two Buc players earned All-Conference honors, which is a combination of points earned during the regular season dual meets and the conference tournament.
Allie Curtis shot a 95 while Autumn Drake came in with a 103, claiming the All-SCC team honors.
Curtis had the third best round of the day.
“Allie really had a great day,” Buc Coach Al Cue notes. “She played consistently throughout her round to earn her way onto the All-SCC team.”
Drake’s 103 was the 11th best round of the day.
“Autumn had a few tough holes,” Cue says. “But she was able to scratch her way through the round and earned All-Conference.”
Natali Fellows score of 115 and Aeli Olson’s 124 also counted for the Bucs team total.
The two other Bucs playing in the tournament were Emily Davids who carded a 125 and Kali Viland who came in with a 133.
“Natali also had a good day,” Cue points out. “She shot her best 18-hole score of the season.”
Cue says the fourth place finish was about what he expected.
“The girls came a long way from our first meet of the season,” he says. “They shot nearly 40 strokes better today than the first meet on this same course.”
