Jills have great week on the greens
Ladysmith hosted the Luck/Unity/Frederic girls team in a Heart of the North conference match on Tuesday, September 8, at Tee Away Golf Club in Ladysmith.
Summer seemed like a long time ago, as the players encountered cold blustery conditions. The extra layers of warm clothes did not impact the Ladysmith squad as they put together a great day and easily beat Luck 208 to 234.
Senior Jackie Wallin put up one of her best career scores with a solid 45. Fellow Senior Kaityln Schott turned in great 50 and sister Sydney Schott a 56. Morgan Susedik rounded out the team scoring with a 57. Freshman Michelle Wallin shot a 63. Low scorer for Luck was Jordan Kamish with a 52.
Ladysmith’s Varsity Reserves also took to the course, and continued to show their improvement. Juniors, Rachel Kostka came in with a 58, Morgan Diamond with a 62 and Payton Kell with a 65.
The win moved Ladysmith’s conference record to 3-1.
On Thursday, Ladysmith traveled to Hidden Greens golf course in Solon Springs, for the Northwestern High School, 18-hole invitational. Hidden Greens proves to be a difficult track every year with holes cut through the northwoods and slick, tilted greens. Everybody plays the same course though, and tough scoring was reflected by all teams.
Ladysmith had a good showing on the day, winning a 3 place plaque (after a tie-breaker with Hayward), with a team score of 444. First place went to Barron with a 433, and second to Northwestern with a 437.
Seniors Jackie Wallin and Kaitlyn Schott again led the team with 18-hole scores of 97 and 104 respectively, good for 2nd and 6th place medals, and Senior Morgan Susedik had an outstanding 117. Sydney Schott battled through with a 126, and Freshmen Michelle Wallin in her first visit to Hidden Greens hung in there for a 137.
Claire Bartlett of Barron was the invite Medalist with a 94. It was a great day for the team as their 444 score was 45 strokes better than their score last year.
Ladysmith completed their busy week with a home match on Friday (September 11) against Chetek-Weyerhaeuser. The team will be celebrating parents night, and welcomes parents, friends, and public to come out and watch some Friday night golf.
