Bulldogs host two meets at Koronis Hills
The Paynesville girls' golf team held two home meets last week, finishing fifth on Friday afternoon in a West Central Conference North meet and second on Saturday morning in an 18-hole, three-team tourney.|
On Friday, in sunny and breezy conditions, the team only had four golfers in the lineup, and still managed to finish fifth. Cathedral, who the Dogs had beaten in all the previous conference meets, slid into fourth, edging the Dogs by four strokes.
Sophomore Heather Fuchs led the Bulldogs with a round of 51 on the front nine at Koronis Hills. Sophomore Amanda Glenz and senior Maria Janotta shot rounds of 53, and sophomore Jena Spaulding completed the scoring with a 58.
Sauk Centre senior Jackie Beste, the defending Class A champion and the top-rated female golfer in the state, was the medalist again with a round of 41. Only eight of the 37 varsity golfers recorded rounds in the 40s at Koronis Hills.
On Saturday, Beste was the medalist again as she led Sauk Centre to a victory in the three-team meet. Beste shot 40 on the front and 39 on the back for a round of 79, taking the meet by 15 strokes.
Janotta, who finished third, and Fuchs, who was fourth, led the Bulldogs. Janotta shot both rounds in the 40s - a 48 on the front and 47 on the back - for a 95. Fuchs shot 51 on the front and 49 on the back for a round of 100.
Spaulding shot 51 and 56, totaling 107, and eighth grader Amber Jensen shot 55 and 58 for 113, giving the Bulldogs a team total of 415, which was 19 behind Sauk Centre.
This week, the girls will play in an invitational at Litchfield on Friday starting at 4:15 p.m. They also will play a conference meet at Melrose on Monday, May 13, at 4:30 p.m. This is their last meet before subsection playoffs.

The Dogs tied with their hosts from LPGE, but took fourth on a tiebreaker. Both teams had four-person totals of 217 but the Dogs' fifth golfer easily beat LPGE's fifth.
Janotta led the Dogs again with a round of 53. Senior Sally Heitke and Jensen shot rounds of 54, and Glenz shot a 56, as did Spaulding, which turned out to be the tiebreaker.
Only six golfers broke 50 at the meet. Beste won with a round of 41.
