Finishes tied for ninth at the Class 1 Sectional 1 Tournament
Boonville senior golfer McKenna Stumph qualified for her third state tournament by finishing in a two-way tie for ninth place Monday during the Class 1 Sectional 1 Tournament at Eldon Country Club.
Of course Stumph wasn’t the only member of the Lady Pirates golf team competing at the sectional tournament. Juniors Olivia Reynolds and Mille Dorman also participated in the tournament, finishing 27th and 40th, respectively.
Stumph finished the tournament with a 12-over par 85 for 18 holes while Reynolds carded a score of 103 and Dorman 110.
Allison Bray of Cape Girardeau Notre Dame captured the individual title with a 1-over par 74.
Boonville Lady Pirates golf coach Rob VanderLinden said after the top two teams are taken out, the top 12 golfers go on to state.
“This is an extremely tough golf course in normal conditions but even tougher when the wind blows 15-20 miles per hour,” VanderLinden said. “This will be McKenna’s third trip to state so we are expecting big things out of her next week. As for Olivia and Mille, this was great experience for them as they will lead the team next year as seniors.”
In the final team standings, Cape Girardeau Notre Dame captured first with a score of 312. John Burroughs finished second at 344, followed by Visitation Academy at 373, Father Tolton at 400, Villa Duchesne at 405 and New Bloomfield at 435.
