HARTINGTON – A fourth tee time in the past seven days led to another top finish for the Wayne High girls golf program.
From the Hartington Golf Club on Monday, following a slow start, WHS went onto win the Hartington Cedar Catholic Invite with a 396 which included a 12-stroke improvement from the front 204 to the back 192.
Head Blue Devil girls golf coach, Josh Johnson said, “I was afraid that homecoming week and our busy schedule would catch up with us and it did a little on our front nine. The girls really battled today (Monday) and kept fighting and really stepped it up. We learned a lot today about course management today and hopefully it will help us out down the road.”
Pierce was one shot back with a 397 to finish runner-up.
Wayne was led by the Cedar Catholic Invitational individual champion Riley Haschke (89) and individual runner up Joslyn Johnson (92). The back nine was highlighted by an impressive 15 stroke improvement by Charli Sievers (58 front nine and 43 back nine) to earn a ninth place (101).
Carli Canham and Lindsay Niemann both shot a 114.
The Wayne High girls golf team will next host the Richard Metteer Invitational on Thursday before traveling to Laurel on Saturday.
