The Boone Central Cardinals had the standout, and also the best depth, in Saturday’s Boone Central Invitational at the Albion Country Club.
That combination is tough to beat – and no one beat the Cardinals.
Boone Central senior Abby Brodersen claimed another gold medal in Saturday’s event and the hosts won the tournament championship in very windy conditions.
Brodersen was the only golfer to break 90, registering an 18-hole score of 82. Cecillia Arndt (90) of Scotus placed second. Boone Central (394), with three medalists, had the only team score below 400, finishing in front of challenges by Lakeview (402) and Battle Creek (413).
It was an all-around performance that impressed Cardinal Coach Amy Ahlers.
“It was great to get our entire team out there for the invitational. Playing at home is always really exciting, but it also brings some added pressure,” Ahlers commented. “That being said, each of the girls definitely lived up to the lofty goals they had set for themselves.
“The wind was tough out there. They fought through it and made some great things happen. They continue to show me more and more of what they are capable of with each tournament, and that is so much fun to witness.
“It’s amazing to look back and see how far they’ve come in the last month.”
Joining Brodersen as Boone Central medalists Saturday were Rachel Malander and Emmah Benson. Malander placed fourth with an 18-hole score of 97 and Benson recorded a 102 to finish tenth. Completing Boone Central’s team score was Kaylee Krohn with a 112.
Cardinal Taylor Beierman finished at 113, Lauren Kohtz 117, Kalli Naber 128, Cassidy Maricle 144 and Britney Naber 154.
