The season came to a halt for the final three Washington golfers Monday.
Neither Madison Sprung, Nichole Brinker nor Jordan Aholt advanced beyond the sectional round Monday at Missouri Bluffs Golf Course in St. Charles. Sprung shot a round of 91, Brinker 96 and Aholt 101.
The cut to qualify for the State Championship Tournament was 88 strokes.
“Overall it was a great year for the Washington golf program,” Head Coach Adam Fischer said. “We had multiple girls play their best golf towards the end of the season. Nichole, Madison, and Jordan each struggled early in their sectional rounds, but all of them were able to regain focus and play some nice golf throughout the middle 12 holes. All three kids struggled as the wind picked up towards the end of their rounds. I was proud of the way they fought through the conditions and slow starts to shoot respectable scores on a tough course.”
MICDS placed first as a team with a score of 317, two shots better than St. Joseph’s Academy’s 319. Other full teams in Class 2, Section 1 were Nerinx Hall, 358, Cor Jesu, 367, and Rockwood Summit, 372.
Washington did not qualify enough golfers to compete as a team at sectionals.
Similarly to the Class 2, District 1 Tournament, Claire Solovic of Seckman shot the best round, a 74.
While MICDS and St Joseph’s each qualified a full team for state, Nerinx Hall and Ursuline each qualified two golfers. One golfer each will advance from Seckman, Northwest, Rockwood Summit, Parkway South, Webster Groves, Westminster, Lindbergh, Clayton and Incarnate Word.
