The Watford City varsity girls golf team competed in two tournaments in Mohall this past week.
In the May 5 meet, Jordan Sparby carded a 102 to finish in sixth place to lead the Wolves’ team, while Kasi Sorenson and Sydney Slais finished with scores of 104 and 112, respectively.
On May 8, the Wolves returned to Mohall, and according to Kelli Taylor, Wolves’ head coach, the team played the best they had all season.
Jordan Sparby placed third with a score of 91, while Sydney Slais took fourth with a 93 and Kasi Sorenson finished with a 105.
“If the girls play like they did on Thursday, they should qualify for State,” says Taylor. “The top 10 individuals placing go to State. We will bring up some Junior High girls and hope to qualify.”
The girls will next be competing in the Regional Tournament on May 15 in Mohall.
The Wolves Junior High also competed in the Northwest Conference Meet last week with the teams taking first and second place.
Abby McCauley placed fourth with a score of 62 and Jayden Uhlich placed sixth with a score of 64.
On Thursday, the Junior High teams competed in a tournament in Mandan, with the seventh grade team placing fourth. Sydney Sanford placed eighth, individually, with a score of 61.
The eighth grade team placed first with Abby McCauley taking third with a score of 56.
“This is a very hardworking and eager group of girls and will do great things in the future if they keep at it,” states Taylor.
