Swedes swing into second place at Southwest Conference meet
The Gothenburg golf team played the Minden Country Club and earned second place shooting a team score of 452. at the Southwest Conference meet Oct. 3.
The Swedes finished behind Minden, who captured first with a team score of 405.
Head coach Tara Foster said the nine-hole course played tough with long par 3s and several holes having out of bounds to the right side.
“The wind didn’t make the course any easier,” Foster said. “It was tough to keep the ball in play because of the conditions and several girls were penalized because of the out of bounds.”
Gothenburg had three individuals medal.
McKinley Harm placed fifth shooting a 104.
Taylour Marshall finished in ninth after a three-way-tie shooting 108.
Mallory McCoy shot a 119, good enough for 15th place.
Foster said the entire team played through tough situations but that can be expected this time of year.
“It’s important the girls remain confident with their golf game,” Foster said. ““They must be able to overcome tough holes in order to finish strong at districts.”
