A stiff wind made it a tough day on the links for the Lincolnwood-Morrisonville girls golf team as they closed out their regular season on Thursday, Oct. 1, at Shoal Creek.
The Lady Lancers turned in a solid performance, shooting a 213 on the night to finish third in the four-team match. Auburn would take the top spot with a 194, while South County was second with a 207. North Mac would finish fourth with a 224, while Northwestern also sent two golfers, two short of the number needed for a team score.
As has been the case for most of the season, the team was led by its three seniors, who were honored following the match.
Dorie Krager and Micah Gehlbach tied for the team low with a pair of 52s, 11 strokes off the pace of medalist Ellie Knight of Auburn. Krager would have Lincolnwood’s only par of the night, which came on the par-5 fourth hole, while Gehlbach had the team’s only birdie, a four on the par-5 ninth hole.
Jordyn Gerlach would round out the senior trio with a 54, while Shelby Hattenbach added the fourth scoring round with a 55.
Also playing for the Lancers were Marisa Webb with a 60 and Jhia Walker and Kaylee Gerlach, who each shot 63s.
The Lancers finished the regular season with a record of 12-16. They will join Litchfield, Ramsey-Nokomis, Hillsboro and others at the Taylorville Regional at Lakeshore Golf Course on Wednesday, Oct. 7, with the top two teams and top four individuals advancing to the Rochester Sectional at The Rail on Thursday, Oct. 15.
