Playing in two matches last week, the Washington golf Lady Jays won one meet and finished second in another.
The Lady Jays took second at Wentzville Liberty Tuesday, with the host team posting 169, Washington scoring 202 and Holt carding 207.
The Lady Jays beat Lutheran South Wednesday, 200-217.
With a pair of golfers falling ill before the match, Washington was able to overcome the adversity.
“Today was a little bit of a crazy day on the course for our kids,” said Washington Head Coach Adam Fischer. “Right before the bus left two of our teammates were sick and couldn’t make the trip at the last minute. Sydney Parrish, Bria Hasenjaeger and Emmy Hopkins really stepped up their games to keep us ahead of Holt all night.”
Parrish and Wentzville Liberty’s Madeline Larouere each shot 38 to lead the field.
“There’s not much else to say about Sydney, she just keeps striking the ball well each night,” Fischer said.
Hasenjaeger shot 51 for the Lady Jays and Hopkins scored 56.
“I’m really happy with the way Bria and Emmy have fought all season and played some good golf for first-year golfers,” Fischer said.
Jordan Aholt finished with 57 for Washington.
Fischer said despite his team’s struggles Wednesday, the Lady Jays were able to pull out the win.
“It was a rough day on the course,” he said. “We came away with the team victory but we struggled as individuals all around. Focus wasn’t there all night, and our play showed because of it.”
Parrish and Emma Jones were the top golfers for Washington, as both shot 47 to medal.
Aholt shot 50 for the Lady Jays.
Hasenjaeger finished with 56, Hopkins carded a 60 and Jessica Frick shot 68.
