Girls struggle at subsections

By Michael Jacobson

The Bulldogs girls' golf team had a disappointing day at the subsection meet on Tuesday, May 20, finishing 11th out of 14 teams at Pebble Creek Golf Course in Becker.

The Bulldogs were beaten by conference rivals St. Cloud Cathedral and Melrose, whom the Dogs had consistently beaten during the season. During the season, the Dogs twice had beaten Sauk Centre, who finished sixth.

New London-Spicer edged Albany for the subsection title. Both teams, as well as the top ten individuals, advanced to sections.

Junior Amanda Glenz and ninth grader Amber Jensen led the Dogs with 18-hole rounds of 105. Both shot 53 on the front nine and 52 on the back. They each missed qualifying for sections individually by five strokes.

Completing the Dogs' team score were junior Jena Spaulding with a round of 118 and junior Brittany Caldwell with a round of 130.

Junior Heather Fuchs - who finished third in the conference individually and who qualified individually for sections last year - shot 135, unfortunately her worst round in six years, said coach Todd Knudsvig.

The section tournament was held on Tuesday, May 27, at Rich-Spring Golf Course.
