Warrior girls place three in top-10 at Tri-Rivers meet

The course was unfamiliar, but the scores were a welcome sight for the Calamus-Wheatland girls golf team during Tuesday's Tri-River Conference meet hosted by North Linn.

Playing at Three Elms Golf Course in Independence for the first time, the Warriors made themselves right at home, placing three players in the top-10 to take third at the meet with a 461.

Central City also had three golfers in the top-10 and won the meet with a 417, while Easton Valley finished just ahead of the Warriors in second with a 459.

"The girls had a great day, placing third in the conference and only missing second by two strokes," Cal-Wheat head coach Stacie Luepker said. "This is a great showing in the new conference and for having never seen the course before.

"Their hard work has definitely paid off."

Pacing the Warriors was senior Abby Perry, who finished fifth overall at the meet with a 105 (Marquette Catholic's Carly Jacobs brought home medalist honors with an 82).

Perry had a consistent day, carding a 53 on the front nine (with a trio of bogeys) and then shooting a stroke better on the back for her 105. The senior's highlight on the back nine was a par on the 13th hole.

Nine strokes back of Perry were her teammates Lauren Heilig and Brodi Bousselot, who tied for ninth on the leaderboard with matching 114s.

Bousselot had a strong front nine as she bogeyed holes three and five en route to a 56 (the sophomore added a 58 on the back for her 114), while Heilig excelled after the turn, bogeying the 17th hole and carding a 53. The senior bogeyed two other holes as part of a 61 on the front nine for her 114.

Finishing the Warriors' team score was freshman Hannah Hamann, who combined a 63 on the front nine (she bogeyed the fourth hole) with a 65 on the back for a 128.

Sophomore Makenna Christensen was just a stroke behind with a 129 (the Warrior parred back-to-back holes - four and five), while Hannah Garland wrapped everything up with a 136.
