HHS Girls Golf
The Holton High School varsity girls golf team’s second trip to the Village Greens Golf Course this season ended with another team victory for the Lady Wildcats as well as another win for senior golfer Sarah Holaday.
“I‘m pretty sure that was the best 18-hole team score we have ever had,” Coach Dennis Tegethoff said of his team’s performance. “I am pretty proud of those girls.”
At the 2018 Jefferson West Open recently, at the golf course near Meriden, the Lady Cats’ team score of 385 beat Kansas City-Piper by two strokes to take the team victory, and Holaday edged Piper’s Brooklynn Lamberd by a single stroke for the best individual score on the links.
“Sarah birdied on that last hole to end up winning,” coach Tegethoff said. “She has played great all year.”
Two other Lady Cat golfers medaled at the meet, it was reported. Senior Taylor Stevens shot a 91 for a fourth-place finish, while senior Faith Holaday shot 99 for a 12th-place finish and senior Abbigail Hundley shot 110.
“Those three are getting a little more consistent, and that’s going to be key for us,” Tegethoff said.
