The Lady Mustang golf team struggled to shoot well at the Bloomfield Country Club April 29 during a triangular meet with Centerville and Chariton. Davis County shot a 247 team score at the Bloomfield Country Club and ended up finishing third out of the three teams.
Centerville won the meet with a 221 team score. Chariton finished second with a 225.
The one bright spot in the meet was the fact that Morgan Petefish once again took top honors individually. Petefish was the medalist of the meet with a low score of 49. Alaina Moorman finished as the runner-up medalist with a round of 50.
Elle Chickering finished with a round of 65 during the meet for the Lady Mustangs. Scarlet Meyer finished with a 65 and Ella Porter shot a 68.
Centerville finished with rounds of 50, 56, 57 and 58. Chariton carded rounds of 52, 55, 59 and 59.
“Overall, the scores for all three teams were not as low as I expected. Bloomfield Country Club is a tougher course than the ones we play at Centerville and Chariton,” said Davis County Coach Donna Copeland. “The scores showed it.”
“I expected our girls to have the upper hand at this meet, but this wasn’t the case. We must lower our number of approach shots and the number of putts on each hole,” said Copeland. “We will put this round in the books and move on to next week’s events.”
Davis County traveled to Honey Creek Resort for a meet Tuesday night. The girls will take part in a tournament at the Ottumwa Country Club on Thursday and will be in Keosauqua on Saturday for the Van Buren Invitational.
