Swede golfers shoot best score in two years
Gothenburg places fifth at Lexington with 433.
LEXINGTON—None of the Swedes earned medals during the Lexington golf invite on Friday but their combined effort and balance led to the lowest team score of the season.
The Swedes finished fifth as a team with 433.
“The girls had better team balance than in previous meets,” said coach Jim Henke. “Some individuals had personal bests to help the team record its lowest score in two years.”
Anna Boson led Gothenburg. The junior shot a nine-hole personal best 46 on the back nine and finished with an even 100.
Senior Elizabeth Graham finished with 107.
“Liz had possibly her worst front nine ever,” Henke said, “but she showed great determination with her personal best nine-hole score of 46 on the back nine.”
Freshman Heidi Teahon continued to gain confidence, Henke said, as she played beyond her experience level and helped lower the team score by improving her personal best 10 strokes for a 110 total.
Haley Scheidt improved her personal best 18-hole score as well, lowering it by six strokes to 116.
The Swedes travel to Lexington on Friday for the Dawson County meet. Tee time has been changed from 1 p.m. to 11 a.m.
