Girls Varsity Golf
Plan on attending the end of the season awards night at Weber's Front Row in Old Orchard on October 23, 2018 at 6:00 pm!
Congrats to all golfers on a great season! Jenna and Anna competed in a solid field at the Sectional Tournament, but failed to advance to the State Tournament next week. Only golfers shooting an 85 or lower advanced after the top 2 teams were taken off the board. St. Joe and Fox were the teams who advanced from our sectional tournament.
Jenna, Anna and Sarah played at Quail Creek in the district tournament. Tough conditions, heat and slower pace of play challenged all. Jenna and Anna both qualified to play in the Sectional tournament next Monday at Crescent Farms Golf Course. Sarah played well but missed the cut by 7 strokes! Sarah, Jenna and Anna are all underclassmen, so these experiences will be used over the next few years as they work on qualifying for a trip to the State Tournament.
At the sectional event, the top 2 teams and the next 12 individuals NOT on the 2 teams will advance to the State Tournament in Kansas City at Swope Memorial Golf Course.
WG finished in 4th of 7 teams on Wednesday at Aberdeen Golf Course. Daeja played in her first 18 hole varsity tournament and did a nice job!!! Sarah placed 15th, Caroline was 9th and Jenna finished 7th individually and all earned medals for their play!
WG battled the Warriors and MOSQUITOS and lost to both at Arnold Golf Course (Pomme Creek). The team is still at 7-3 on the season with a final tri-match on Tuesday.
Jenna led the way with a team low of 41. Daeja and Jadyn were in the line up with Anna and Caroline.
A few players short in the program had only Mary Claire, Jaden and Olivia in action at Sunset. Mary Claire led the team in scoring.
WG moves to 7-2 on the season with a finish ahead of both the Longhorns and Panthers!! Jenna was the lowest score of all golfers! Sarah, Jaden, Lili, Caroline and Anna were all in action at Sunset.
WG got past the Patriots by 3 strokes on Wednesday!!
Jenna was the match medalist with a solid +6 on the day. Mary Claire played in her first varsity match; Sarah, Jaden and Caroline rounded out the team at Crescent Farms Colt course.
WG played a solid 4 from Parkway Central on a HOT day at Quail Creek. This round will prepare us for the next 2 matches on Wed and Thurs as heat and golf continue, with a break next week?? In the weather.......
Sarah led the team in scoring, but WG lost by 44......coaches chat all the time.....you ponder now....would you rather lose by 1 or 44??? they both happen and we learn in both scenarios!
Lili, Jaden, Caroline, Anna and Jenna were also in the match.
Daeja, Mary Claire, Cecily and Olivia completed their tournament portion of the schedule Monday morning at the St. Joe Tournament. Mary Claire led the team in scoring at the event.
Golf season is fast and furious and with less than 2 weeks left, the JV is down to their final matches of the season!
BIRDIE time for Cecily on the 8th hole at Ballwin!!! She also finished with the best WG score on the day.....good job Cecliy! Daeja, Mary Claire, and Oliva were all in action at the tri-match.
Daeja, Mary Claire and Jadyn all went to Aberdeen for the first ever Eureka JV tournament, which had 13 schools in the field. A twist on scoring and format again, keeps things from getting mundane.......Daeja and Mary Claire shot a very, very nice 80 in a scramble format and earned a 3rd!! place medal for each player. Jadyn shot an impressive 103 on her own ball. WG was represented well by those three ladies!!
WG had aTri-match at Fox Run C.C. on Tuesday. Great golf course and many challenging shots for all. Deep bunkers and hazard carries that test all in the field.
Sarah tied for match medalist with a solid 46 on her round! Jenna was right behind with a 47. Anna, Jaden and Caroline played and when the totals were added, WG was victorious by ONE stroke over Eureka and nine ahead of Northwest. Great job!!
WG finished in 10th place of the 14 teams in the event. This was a new format to the girls and they did a nice job using a little partner help but mainly their own ball in play (shamble).
Lili and Caroline, Jaden and Jenna, Sarah and Anna were all in action at the tournament.
WG is a winner! 201-210 on a very challenging back nine at Sunset Hills.
Jenna was the match medalist for her 2nd time in 3 matches! Sarah, Jaden, Anna, Lili and Caroline all were involved in the match.

The JV team played on a HOT day for golf and lost to the Colts. Sarah was the match medalist!
Cecily, Deaja, Mary Claire and Olivia were also in action at Sunset.
WG finished in 4th place of the 16 teams present. Anna and Jaden received a 10th place medal for finishing in the top 12 scramble groups! This was the first time WG has come home with team hardware!!
WG played a solid Summit team. We played better than the previous match, but just faced a better team that round! Jenna and Anna both led the team in scoring. Jaden, Sarah, Daeja and Jadyn also played in the match.
First match, rainy day, new course, NO MATTER! WG is 1-0 on the season! Very good team effort saw the girls beat Oakville at Quail Creek. Jenna (46) was the match medalist and only score in the 40's!! Anna, Caroline, Jaden, Jadyn and Lili were all in action against the Tigers!
