Boonville junior McKenna Stumph picked up where she left off last year after qualifying for the state tournament in her first season with the Lady Pirates.
In a quadrangular meet Tuesday at Old Hawthorne in Columbia, Stumph led the Lady Pirates, and the field for that matter, with a 13-over par 85 to capture meet medalist honors.
In the final-team standings, Boonville also captured first with a score of 403. Centralia finished second at 479, followed by California at 505 and Paris at 528.
Boonville Lady Pirates golf coach Rob VanderLinden said what a way to start the year. “Last year when we competed against these four schools, our team score was 459,” VanderLinden said. “We improved by 56 strokes from last year. This was also our lowest 18 hole round ever. Being the first match we were playing, all I was looking for was improvement. Each one of the girls came in with a better score or even with last year. Hopefully, the girls will want to keep improving and will do better each match.”
While shooting a score of 85, VanderLinden said Stumph had six pars and 11 bogeys to finish nine strokes better than last year. Olivia Reynolds, meanwhile, finished the meet with a score of 105 with two pars and five bogeys and a 20-stroke improvement. Mille Dorman scored a 116 with two pars and two bogeys with a 21 stroke improvement while Jalyn Schnetzler carded a score of 117 with one par and three bogeys and Alisa Newbold with a score of 122 with one bogey.
VanderLinden said Schnetzler did not play in the meet last year while Newbold was even with last year.
Sara Oliver of Centralia and Sharron Smith of Paris finished the meet with a score of 113. Madison Radcliff had the low score for California at 115.
