Girls shoot past Saints, 5th at Jordan
The Blue Earth Area Buccaneers had a commanding win over the Saints of St. James on Monday, April 23.
But, the coach wasn’t extremely happy with the team score.
“The girls won another conference meet, always a good thing,” Buc coach Al Cue says. “The score wasn’t real good considering they were playing in very favorable conditions.”
The Bucs defeated the Saints 424 to 500.
Leading the way for BEA was Allie Curtis who came in with a 96. Autumn Drake added a 102.
Both Anna Aukes and Emily Davids carded identical scores of 113 for the Bucs third and fourth individual totals that added to the team score.
Aeli Olson had a 122 for BEA’s other varsity score.
“The girls continue to struggle with their short games,” Cue says. “Hopefully, over the next few weeks, we can get better around the green and then the scores will drop.”
