SHENANDOAH – The Shenandoah Fillies won third-place team medals at their home tournament, Tuesday, April 16.

Shenandoah’s Brooke Bauer and Kelsi Carlson also earned individual medals. They both shot a 101 with Bauer finishing sixth and Carlson seventh.

“They were both two or three holes away from the mid-90s which is what we are shooting for,” Shenandoah coach Kyan Kirkholm said on his top two. “Kelsi had a great front nine. She had a triple bogey and quadruple bogey on 8 and 9 and still shot a 47. Brooke had a 9 and an 8, take those away and she’s right there in the mid 90s.”

Essex senior Lexi Burnison shot a 99 to earn a fourth-place individual medal.

“She was really excited,” Essex coach Jay Soderberg said. “Her goal was to break 100. She has been low-50s and mid-50s. She had a great front nine with a 45, but struggled down the stretch. I’m really proud of her.”

Bauer and Carlson’s scores led Shenandoah to a team score of 439.

Creston won the team title with a 403. The Panthers had the top two finishers, including an 80 from Rylie Driskell to beat the field by 16 strokes. Glenwood was second with a 428. Clarinda and Red Oak were fourth and fifth, both within nine shots of the Fillies.

Morgan McGargill added a 110 for the Fillies and Halle Wheatley was the final scorer with a 127.

Keelee Razee’s 140 and Hannah Mulligan’s 142 completed Shenandoah’s lineup.

Burnison’s 99 led Essex to a seventh-place score of 462.

“I’m proud of the girls,” said Soderberg. “They finished seventh out of nine and we were the only 1A school with a team score.”

Ainsley Byers had her best score of the season with a 107. Savanna Moffett, who was on a plane returning from a family vacation in Florida earlier in the day, added a 126. Jessie Jones’ 130 was Essex’s final score.

Shelby Brockshus scored a 136 and Allison Johnson a 152 to complete Essex’s lineup.

Sidney and Fremont-Mills also competed with just five total golfers between the teams.

Madison Kingery led the Cowgirls with a 116. Haley Hobbie added a 122 and Faith Brumbaugh shot a 134.

Sierra Schebaum led Fremont-Mills with a 119. Lillian Mahaney added a 150.
