Boonville junior McKenna Stumph captured meet medalist honors with a 1-under par 34 Thursday in a dual meet against Father Tolton.
While finishing with three birdies, four pars and two bogeys in the meet, Boonville golf coach Rob VanderLinden said it was Stumph’s first time shooting under par and first time breaking 40 in competition.
Despite Stumph’s efforts, the Lady Pirates finished second behind Father Tolton in the team standings 163-192.
“Even though we didn’t come out on top, we surpassed one of our season goals,” VanderLinden said. “Last year the Lady Pirates never broke a team score of 200. The second match of the season they shot a 192. McKenna, Mille Dorman and Jalyn Schnetzler each set personal low scores. We are still a young team and all I keep looking for is improvement from the team. The girls are really doing a good job trying to work on their weaknesses at practice. Hopefully we will keep improving as the season continues.”
Haleigh Berry and Serena Berry had the low scores for Father Tolton with a 35 and 36, respectively.
As for the rest of the scoring for Boonville, Olivia Reynolds and Jalyn Schnetzler finished the match with a 17-over par 52 with one par and two bogeys while Mille Dorman and Alisa Newbold fired a round of 54 with two and three bogeys, respectively. Ali Taylor finished with a score of 55 with one bogey.
