The Boonville Lady Pirates golf team could have packed its bags long before the match Thursday on the road against the Odessa Bulldogs.
With a triangular meet on Tuesday and the Helias Invite on Wednesday, the Lady Pirates had reason to be tired with 27 holes of golf in a 24 hour span.
But it wasn’t like that at all as Boonville battled through fatigue to beat Odessa by 23 strokes, 204-227.
Boonville Lady Pirates golf coach Rob VanderLinden said the girls won the match without being on top of their game. “Everyone shot a couple of strokes above their average but there is a couple of reasons for that,” VanderLinden said. “This was their third match on the road in three days and they were a little tired. This was the first time they have ever played this course and the course just finished aerating their greens so the putting was tough. It was still nice to get the win.”
Also to nobody’s surprise was the play of senior McKenna Stumph. While tying for fourth one day earlier in the Helias Invite, Stumph captured meet medalist honors with a 5-over par 41 with one birdie, four pars and three bogeys.
Junior Olivia Reynolds finished the match with a score of 52 with three bogeys, followed by Mille Dorman with a score of 54 with two bogeys, Alisa Newbold with a score of 57 with three bogeys, Jalyn Schnetzler with a score of 59 with two bogeys and Julianne Bromagen with a score of 63 with one par and one bogey.
Odessa was led by Ava Scott with a score of 48.
