Paynesville Press - May 1, 2002

Dogs brave wind, cold to take second

By Michael Jacobson

In breezy, cold weather that shot most scores into the 50s, the PAHS girls' golf team took second place at a conference meet at Albany on Thursday.

The Bulldogs totaled 208, trailing only Albany (191) and edging Litchfield (209). The Bulldogs had finished fourth in the three previous West Central Conference North meets this spring.

Sophomore Heather Fuchs and senior Sally Heitke led the Dogs with rounds of 51, tying for sixth individually. Sophomore Amanda Glenz and eighth grader Amber Jensen added rounds of 53.

The Bulldogs relied on their depth to earn six team points (for second place) in the overall conference team standings. The Dogs, with 18 team points, still trail Albany (26), Litchfield (23), and Sauk Centre (21).

Sauk Centre senior Jackie Beste, the defending Class A state champ, was the medalist at the meet with a 42. Only five of the 43 golfers shot rounds in the 40s at the meet, including three from Albany.

This week, the girls' team golfed at LPGE on Tuesday. They will host a conference meet at Koronis Hills in Paynesville on Friday, starting at 4:30 p.m. On Saturday, they will host a three-team meet with Sauk Centre and St. Cloud Cathedral, also at Koronis Hills, starting at 8:30 a.m.
