The Ogden Tigers continue their dominance in Region 11 girls golf with their fourth victory of the year. The Tigers grabbed first place at Skyway Golf Course in Tremonton with a combined score of 299.
Local teams had a tough time getting their entire teams to Skyway Thursday afternoon, mostly due to spring break, as Grantsville was the only local team with a complete team. The Cowboys finished fifth in Tremonton with 388 strokes, which is their third fifth place finish in four matches.
Katie Johnson led the way for Grantsville Thursday with a 120, which was a five stroke improvement from the previous match. Val Ortiz followed with a 129 while Cassady Whear rounded out the scores that counted with a 139.
Shayna Behunin and Catie Peterson also played at Skyway. Behunin shot a 143 while Peterson finished with a 148 to narrowly miss out on recording their scores for Grantsville.
Stansbury had a pair of girls show up and even though it takes three girls to log a score, they were still able to get work in. Koralee Kaufman shot a solid round of 116 while Courtney Olofson finished with a 166. Tooele didn’t log any scores at Skyway but did finish their best as a team the previous week at El Monte Golf Course in Ogden on Mar. 29. Tooele finished with a 369 at El Monte to finish fifth for the first time all season.
Paige Christensen led Tooele with a 117 while Sydney Gowans came in with a 125. Jayden Coates rounded out the scores for Tooele with a 127 at El Monte.
Grantsville finished sixth at El Monte and was led by a solid round from Ortiz with a 111. Johnson followed that with a 125 and Behunin finished with a 133 to give the Cowboys a 369 as a team to tie for fifth in stroke play.
Stansbury finished in seventh at El Monte with a 377 as a team. Playing in her first match of the year, Emmi Gertson led the Stallions with a 111 while Kaufman followed her with a 117. Myra Rosengren rounded out the scores for Stansbury with a 149.
