Women's Golf / October 16, 2019 By Kasey McDowell
The 2019 Women's Golf Regional tournament was held on Monday, October 14th at Quail Ridge Golf Course in Winfield, the toughest golf course the Cats have been to this year. The Wildcats were led by senior Mattie Ewing who finished the day with a round of 109, which qualified her individually for the State Tournament (4th individual qualifier) and she finished in 13th place overall. "Mattie played well and was very consistent. The rough on this course was very thick and challenging, but Mattie's short game saved her a lot of strokes. She is excited to compete at State next week." said Coach Headrick.
The course was not friendly to the Wildcats as a team as they finished with a team score of 596 for 6th place and junior Shyra Herrman finished with a score of 143 (32nd place), sophomore Jorja Knodel finished with a score of 149 (34th place), and senior Maria Rodriguez finished with a score of 195 (35th place). "I took the whole team because I wanted them to have the experience of playing 18 holes in a challenging post-season tournament before next season. Our JV girls really struggled, but they still gained valuable experience for next year. It was their first 18 hole tournament. Also, their first tournament where there is no maximum score on a hole." said Coach Headrick.
The State tournament will be on Monday, Oct 21, 2019 and Tuesday Oct 22, 2019 at Hesston Golf Course.
