Boonville senior McKenna Stumph made the most of her last match at Hail Ridge Golf Course on Wednesday.
In a dual meet against Southern Boone of Ashland, Stumph literally went out swinging by tying her personal best and school record with a 1-under par 34.
That’s the good news. The bad news is that Boonville finished two strokes back of Southern Boone in the final scoring 183-185.
Boonville Lady Pirates golf coach Rob VanderLinden said a lot of good things happened in this match but they didn’t get the win. “The bad is we lost the match by two strokes,” VanderLinden said. “The good things were this was our lowest team score of the year and the first time we have shot as a team in the 180s. Olivia Reynolds shot an individual score in the 40s for the first time this year. Julianne Bromagen shot her season low. The last good thing, or bad depending on how you look at it, this was McKenna Stumph’s final home match. She played her last round at Hail Ridge by tying her personal best and school record with a 1-under par 34. She shot this same score as a junior, so I’m extremely happy for her and also going to miss her being part of this team.”
While capturing meet medalist honors for all but one match thus far this season, Stumph also had one eagle, one birdie, five pars and two bogeys on the day against Southern Boone.
Junior Olivia Reynolds, meanwhile, shot her best score of the season with a 10-over par 45 with one par and seven bogeys. Mille Dorman shot a score of 52 with two bogeys while Alisa Newbold fired a round of 54 with three bogeys, Jalyn Schnetzler 55 with two bogeys and Julianne Bromagen 61 with one bogey.
Hannah Largent had the low score for Southern Boone with a 8-over par 43.
