Hinton edges K-P in girls golf triangular
KINGSLEY — Hinton didn’t have anyone in the top three individuals in their triangular meet against MVAOCOU and Kingsley-Pierson on Tuesday, but that didn’t stop the Blackhawks from having the low score of the day with a 211. That was lower than MVAOCOU’s 214 and K-P’s 221.
“Steady scoring was the key to tonight’s victory,” Hinton Head Coach Joel Small said. “We finally got to play a round without Mother Nature wreaking havoc. This meet was not originally on the schedule but was picked up after missing a couple playing dates this spring.”
The same three teams met just over a month ago at Mapleton and all three teams were able to cut down their scores from that meet in the latest contest at Brookside Golf Course. Hinton shot a 223 back on March 29 while MVAOCOU won with a 218 and K-P finished with a 238 in that early season meet.
Hinton’s four counting scores all came after the top three on the leaderboard. Hailey Rosenbaum had the team’s top score of the day with a 51. Mia Fleckenstein and Kenedi Spies followed with matching 53 tallies. Addison Kovarna rounded out the counting four for the Blackhawks with a 54.
Kingsley-Pierson’s Jordyn Sitzmann was overall medalist with a 46 as she was four strokes ahead of the two runner-up scores of 50 from MVAOCOU’s Cadence Koenigs and Paige Wooster.
The Panthers got their second score with a 55 from Hannah Koch. A pair of 60 tallies from Gabby Boustead and Abbie Martensen completed the team score for the Panthers.
Hinton’s non-counting scores were a 59 from Crayten Stusse and a 60 from Mackenzie Pearce. K-P’s final two tallies were a 62 from Reagan Vos and a 68 from Allison Dye.
