Crook County girls golf team struggles at Bend Golf Club
Bend Golf Club proved to be a tough course for the high school girls teams who attempted to tame it on Monday.
Nearly every golfer in the field struggled on the day as the course proved to be especially difficult.
Even medalist Olivia Loberg of Summit struggled, finishing with a nine-over-par round of 81. Loberg typically shoots one or two shots over par and is the defending state champion.
With the course playing difficult, team scores soared at the event.
As has happened all season, Bend found a way to win, posting a score of 367. They were followed by Summit with a round of 392, then Ridgeview, 405.
The Cowgirls came away with fourth place in the six-team tournament with a round of 474.
Kaiya Eller and Alexa Edwards, who led the Cowgirls on Friday at Juniper Golf Course, struggled Monday, posting scores considerably higher than in the previous tournament.
Edwards wound up third for the Cowgirls with a round of 127, while Eller slipped to fourth on the team with a score of 135.
Meanwhile, Macy Goehring and Sammi Todd, who both struggled at Juniper, improved their scores, posting rounds of 101 and 111, respectively.
The final Cowgirl to compete in the tournament was Asia Layne, who finished with a round of 141.
The Cowgirls were back in action on Thursday at Eagle Point Golf Course.
The team returns home Monday, April 16, for their lone home tournament of the year, a noon start at Meadow Lakes Golf Course.
