Competition was tight Thursday at Hidden Greens Golf Course as the Northwestern High School girls golf team hosted the Northwestern Invitation.
Tigers coach Steve High said it was a beautiful day for golf, but teams were challenged by the 18-hole course in Solon Springs.
“In order to be in the top 10 today — which is a sign of the challenge of Hidden Greens for all of the teams — a 102 or under was a top 10 finish,” High said.
Haley Seifert, of Ladysmith, was the meet medalist with a 91. Molly Lattery took fifth overall, shooting a 99 to lead Northwestern.
Other golfers contributing to the Tigers’ team score were Lyndi Graff (115), Marissa Delvas (117) and Reggie Semanko (117).
In team competition, Hayward finished first, shooting a 397. Northwestern finished in fourth with a 448, and the Superior Spartans came in fifth with a 472.
Leading Superior was Samantha Aune, with a 107. Allison Shober shot a 113, Hailey Gronquist had a 121 and Amanda Hinaus finished out the scoring with a 131.
On Monday, the Northwestern played Hayward and Chetek at Hayward.
The Hurricanes won the meet with a team score of 190, and Northwestern finished second with 128. Chetek did not have enough players to record a team score.
Lattery was the top golfer for Northwestern, and finished one stroke back from the lead with a 42.
“If she had a couple of holes to play over she would take them gladly, but you don’t get do-overs in this sport,” High said.
Hayward’s Lauren Tremblay earned medalist honors with a 41.
Rounding out Northwestern’s scoring were Graff (48), Delvas (49) and Semanko (51).
In junior varsity action, sophomore Kristine Britton shot a 53 for the Tigers. Cora Jarman, also a sophomore, had her best nine-hole round of golf yet for Northwestern.
