Mackedanz earns WCCN honors

By Michael Jacobson

Sophomore Marissa Mackedanz earned All Conference honors in the West Central Conference North, as the girls' golf team completed their conference season.

The Dogs played in their last WCC North meet on Monday, May 16, at Melrose, finishing sixth.

Mackedanz tied for tenth last week and finished ninth in the overall individual conference standings. The top five scores (out of six total conference meets) count for the individual standings.

Mackedanz shot rounds of 41, 46, 48, 49, and 49 for a five-round total of 233, averaging 46.6 strokes per round.

Albany senior Lindsey Wellenstein won the individual conference title and led Albany to the team title again by averaging 40.8 strokes per round. Last year, she finished fourth in Class A at state.

Junior Amber Jensen shot 47 for the Dogs at Melrose last week, tying for sixth. She finished 14th in overall conference standings, averaging 49.8 strokes per round. She missed All Conference honors, which she earned two years ago, by 12 strokes this year.

Sophomore Cassandra Olmscheid also had one of her strongest rounds of the year for the Dogs last week, shooting 55.

The Dogs finished sixth in the overall conference standings. Albany (35 points) won the conference title followed by Cathedral (31), Sauk Centre (24), LPGE (17), Melrose (13), and Paynesville (6).

This week, the Dogs started their subsection playoffs on Tuesday at Becker. If anyone advances, the section meet will be held on Tuesday, May 31, at Rich-Spring Golf Course between Richmond and Cold Spring.
