Milaca’s girls golf team had one more chance to perfect their swings before heading to the Section 6AA Meet at Blackberry Ridge in Sartell
on June 6-7. That final chance came last Wednesday at the Cathedral Invite hosted at Wapicada Golf Course east of St. Cloud.
The Wolves finished in seventh place, 67 strokes behind first place Staples-Motley on the day.
Milaca’s top finisher was freshman Claire Mettling, who shot a 99. She was the only Milaca girl to break 100. Rocori’s Marja Sorenson took medalist honors with a 78.
Emily Israelson shot a 79 to lead the Cardinals to the win with a 357 total.
Milaca topped eight-place Pierz by 80 strokes.
Other golfers for Milaca were Olivia Wolbert and Molly Banks, who each shot 106. Haley Hoskins and Alicia Wolbert each added 13’s to round out the Milaca total of 424. Elaina Davis also golfed for the Wolves. She carded a 119.
At the section meet, a golfer must be on one of the top four teams or one of eight individuals not on one of those four teams to advance to the second day of the tournament.
To qualify for state, one either must be on the winning team of the meet, or one of the top five individuals that weren’t on that winning team.
If the team or an individual qualifies for the state meet, that is on June 10-11 at Ridges at Sand Creek in Jordan.
The Section 6AA meet was incomplete when this issue went to press. Look next week for complete results.
