Camdenton’s Wilson and Schell earn title of match medalist

The golf season continues to go well for Camdenton.

The Lakers visited Osage on Thursday afternoon for 9-hole action against the host Indians, Blair Oaks and Dixon at Osage National and Camdenton topped the field with a team score of 188. Blair Oaks took second with a score of 212, Osage took third with a 235 and Dixon finished at 267 respectively.

Once again, Camdenton’s Amber Wilson put up the best score of any golfer earning her third straight match medalist honor. However, this time she was also joined by teammate Jennah Schell as the two finished with a 1-over-par score of 37 to become co-match medalists. Allie Crowell put up a round of 53 for the Lakers, Emily Hunter put up a 61 and Anna Grace Glor finished with a 67.

“For three of the golfers, it was their first match ever and they did very well for a first match on a tough course,” Camdenton coach Jane Eidson said of the team overall. “As we play matches this week, I look for us to continue improving with practice and experience in matches.”

Osage was led by Emily Maher who shot a 52 and Greta Crooks put up a score of 59 in the first competition of her career.

“She has only been playing golf since early August and Thursday was her first ever competition,” Osage coach L.J. Weeks pointed out. “I was very happy with her score considering she is so new to the game.”

The Indians went on to play in tournament competition at Boonville on Friday where they finished seventh out of 10 total schools. Up next is another home meet on Thursday where Osage will meet rival Eldon at 4 p.m. Meanwhile, Camdenton was scheduled to visit Rolla on Tuesday night and the Lakers will take a trip to Lebanon on Thursday at the same time.
