ST. ANSGAR | Saint Ansgar's girls gold team claimed victory at Acorn Park on Monday, April 8, finishing with a score of 225, 10 strokes ahead of second-place Newman Catholic. West Fork also competed.
The Saints had the second- and third-place golfers. Morgan Hemann finished with a 54, and Mackenna Pannhoff was one stroke behind, concluding action with a 55. Megan Adams and Taylor Vervaecke also had sub-60 scores.
The squad picked up another victory Tuesday, April 9, at Northwood Country Club against North Iowa, Northwood-Kensett and Riceville. The Saints had two of the top three golfers and three of the top five. Hemann (52) Pannhoff (52) and Hannah Groth (58) led the way for the Saints.
"I've been happy with the way the girls have been playing," coach Shannon Belz said. "They are hitting the ball well but are in need of some time to work on their short games. We have struggled with our pitching and chipping."
The Saints were scheduled to host Central Springs and Rockford on Monday, April 15. Results were not available at press time.
On Thursday, April 18, they travel to Nora Springs for a meet against Rockford and Nashua-Plainfield.
