Originally, it was supposed to be a dual meet.
But Thursday’s golf outing at Franklin County Country Club turned into a four-team party with Borgia hosting Union, Barat Academy and Westminster Christian Academy.
Westminster won the event with a combined score of 79. Borgia shot 88 while Union was third at 92. Barat Academy rounded out the meet at 98.
With four schools competing, the coaches went to a different format.
“We changed up the format and let the girls play a two-person scramble to let them try something a little different,” Borgia Head Coach Michael Pelster said. “I think most of the girls from each team really enjoyed the new challenges that the format requires while also getting to play with a teammate.”
Union Head Coach Matt Goddard said the format was a nice change.
“I was excited to come in and have the girls play a two-person scramble,” said Goddard. “I think the girls had a chance to have a little more fun and enjoyed working directly as a team together. I think they played decent and we are still improving.”
Each school could play three teams in the varsity match with the two lowest scores counting.
For Borgia, two teams shot 44. Sydney Unnerstall and Halle Fischer combined for one of those teams and Megan Holtmeyer and Sara Kopmann were on the other one. The team of Cailey Foss and Britney Harriman checked in at 46.
Union’s team of McKenna Coombs and Olivia Struttman combined to shoot 43. The team of Sophia Miner and Emily Young ended at 47.
“While none of my girls played fantastic, they all did well enough to shoot a decent score,” Pelster said. “Halle Fischer has really been hitting the ball great off the tee and rolled in a long putt on one of the holes.”
Pelster said the course was in great shape. The teams played on the front nine Thursday.
“Franklin County Country Club just aerated the greens Tuesday but they had them in fantastic shape compared to a lot of other courses we have played,” Pelster said. “I was pretty glad we only had one match this week. You could tell our girls were more focused on homecoming than golf. We only have two weeks until the district from this coming Monday, so hopefully after homecoming is over, our girls are able to put all of their focus on golf.”
