Grantsville lady golfers finish fifth at Skyway

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.

All three local teams will tee it up at Oquirrh Hills Golf Course on Thursday at 1 p.m.
