Poor conditions threatened to keep Dell Rapids High School golfers out of competition for a second straight week but a last minute entry to the Dakota Valley meet helped the girls knock some rust off their game Tuesday, April 16.
Varsity golfers April Tomes, Natasha Reit, Aleza Kirschenmann, Courtney Sorsen and Sarah Haak earned an 8th place finish with a score of 482. Parkston won the meet with a 327 score.
Tomes led the Quarriers with a 114. Reit shot a 115 and Kirschenmann shot a 116.
Of the Dell Rapids junior varsity golfers to compete, Taylor Brown was best with a score of 134.
“I was impressed with our ability to do a respectable job with so little practice. Some of our girls competed in their first meet ever and completed the first 18 holes of their lives,” said Jeff Dvorak, Quarriers head coach. “As the weather improves, I'm excited about to see the improvements this group will make.”
