On a miserable day of wet, cold weather Saturday that often felt more like February than mid-September, the Cardinal girls golf team put its moxie and talent on full display by easily winning the Boone Central Invitational championship at the Albion Country Club.
With senior Brooke Bolin (77) taking individual gold medalist honors just in front of junior teammate Britany Seda (79) and a third Cardinal, sophomore Amy Ahlers (85), placing fourth overall, Boone Central eclipsed runner-up Columbus Scotus by 38 strokes (349-387). Mid-State Conference foe Wayne was a distant third.
“The day started out both cold and rainy,” acknowledged Card Coach Dennis Walters. “The rain stopped after about 5-6 holes, but the rest of the day was cold and the girls being wet did not help.
“Considering the weather, I thought the scores were good.”
Bolin and the Cardinals had warmed up for the invitational tournament on a beautiful afternoon Tuesday, Sept. 14, by handily defeating Scotus and Lakeview in triangular action.
Bolin dominated her home course, breaking the school nine-hole record with a score of 34 – four strokes under ladies’ par at the A.C.C.
Boone Central compiled a 170 team total with Seda and Ahlers shooting rounds of 41 and Taylor Ivers adding a 54. Scotus was second at 196.
