Boonville finishes eighth overall behind all Class 2 schools
The Boonville Lady Pirates golf team could get used to playing in the Helias Invitational Tournament.
After finishing in the top half last year, mostly against Class 2 school, the Lady Pirates once again ranked in the top-half on Wednesday at Meadow Lake Acres in New Bloomfield by finishing eighth out of 20 teams.
Rock Bridge captured first in the tournament with a score of 345 while Helias placed second at 347 and Jeff City fourth at 377. Boonville shot a team score of 400.
Boonville Lady Pirates golf coach Rob VanderLinden said the seven schools that beat Boonville were Class 2 schools. Boonville competes in Class 1.
“Even though we finished eighth, it was a very good performance from the girls,” VanderLinden said.
Boonville senior McKenna Stumph was the only medalist for the Lady Pirates, finishing in a tie for fourth place with a 8-over par 80. Stumph had one birdie, eight pars and seven bogeys.
VanderLinden said 99 girls competed in the Helias Invite. “The score of 80 by McKenna was a big improvement from her score at the same course last year in this tournament and at state,” VanderLinden said.
Amber Wilson of Camdenton was the top medalist in the tournament with a 3-over par 75.
Olivia Reynolds finished the tournament with a score of 107 with six bogeys while Millie Dorman shot a score of 109 with two pars and two bogeys, Alisa Newbold 114 with one birdie and three bogeys and Jalyn Schnetzler 118 with two bogeys.
