Lady Pirates finish third in Lady Pirate Classic out of 14 teams
The Boonville Lady Pirates golf team didn’t place first as a team nor did they have anyone in the top five Friday during the 5th Annual Lady Pirate Classic at Hail Ridge Golf Course in Boonville.
But considering of the 14 teams competing in the tournament, Boonville finished third only behind Blair Oaks and Osage in the final team standings.
Boonville golf coach Rob VanderLinden said it was a perfect day for the tournament.
“We had 14 schools and 78 golfers competing,”VanderLinden said. “The tournament is different from most tournaments. The athletes play partner golf for the entire 18 holes. Each group of golfers play six holes scramble, six holes shamble and six holes of best ball. This was the first tournament for the girls for the season.
“We also celebrated senior day with our one senior-Julianne Bromagen. She has played all four years and will be a three-year letterwinner. She has done a lot for the younger girls throughout her career. Hopefully, she will continue to contribute throughout the rest of the season.”
In the final team standings, Blair Oaks captured first with a team score of 253. Osage finished second with a score of 261, followed by Boonville at 268, Battle at 282 and Duchense at 300.
