Holyoke’s girls’ golf team finished the season on a high note, placing first in the league tournament in Brush Monday, May 13. The win also gave HHS the top spot in league standings for the season.
“The season was a bit of a struggle with the weather and trying to find time to practice, but in the end, the girls stepped up and did what they needed to do on the last day to hold off the other teams and win league,” coach Garrett Gordon said.
With a team score of 317, Holyoke topped Yuma and Wray by one stroke to win the tournament. Makayla Spitz carded a 97 in the tournament to lead the team. Alyssa Cordova and Caitlyn Kramer each posted a 110 and Alex McCallum shot a 140.
Gordon commended his team for their perseverance. He said they never gave up and were able to accomplish many of their goals, including winning league.
Girls fall short at regionals
With weather causing a number of postponements throughout the season, the league championship was actually played after the regional tournament, which was held Tuesday, May 7 in Ft. Morgan.
“The overall condition of the course in Ft. Morgan was difficult because of the spring weather they have had,” Gordon said.
In the tournament, Holyoke placed eighth, shooting a score of 361.
Spitz led the team with a 115, Cordova shot a 117, Kramer 129 and McCallum 139.
“None of them played how they would have liked, but it was a great learning experience for them down the line for competition situations,” Gordon said.
