The ladies started their season in Victoria at the Claude Jacobs Challenge on Feb. 13th and 14th, taking fifth place in a field of 17 teams. A couple of teams were ranked in the top 50 in the nation.
We got off to a rocky start firing 319 in the first round and 314 in the second and closed with a 306. As we improved each round we moved from 8th to 5th by tournament’s end.
I was proud of the team for not giving up, which resulted in a strong finish. Jessica Borth had a good tournament, finishing in the top 25 individually in a field of 90 players. Shelby Hardy continues where she left off in the fall with another top 10 finish. Her consistency is making her one of the top players in the Southland Conference.
Our next tournament is the conference preview in Corpus Christi and now that the weather is better we will be working hard to prepare for it.
