Eldon captures first place at Marshall Tournament

Eldon had a good day up in Marshall on Tuesday.

The Mustangs not only saw Kassidy Hull repeat as match medalist in the Marshall Tournament, but came home with the first place hardware as well after putting up a team score of 410.

“We played great as a team. The girls’ hard work is starting to show,” Eldon coach Matt Frey said. “I was proud of the girls as they played their round. When I would get to one that may have had a bad hole, they would stay positive and keep playing hard because we all knew we had a chance to win.”

Kassidy Hull put up the best score of the day after turning in an 18-hole round of 84 while Emalee Bennett placed fourth after carding a 100 to medal as well. Reece Henderson shot a 112, Gracie Petet put up a 114 and Meladee Strickland turned in a round of 120.

“Kassidy did not play her best round, but she finished first individually last year and wanted to repeat,” Frey noted. “Bennett, Henderson and Peter shot their career low rounds.”

Eldon was scheduled to be in Jefferson City on Wednesday and will play host to Osage to rival Osage on Thursday at 4 p.m.

Camdenton finishes third in quad with Waynesville, Rolla and Helias

Camdenton hosted a quad meet at Lake Valley on Tuesday against Rolla, Waynesville and Helias and the Lakers finished third in the final team standings while Helias bested the field with a score of 183.

The Lakers were paced by junior Allie Crowell and Camdenton coach Jo Beth Nicklas said she is seeing constant improvement from the young squad.

“Crowell is the only current varsity player to see varsity time last year. The rest of the team is learning quickly about how they need to approach play as a varsity member,” the coach stated. “As a team, we need to focus on improved chipping and putting to bring down our stroke average and make us more competitive.”

Camdenton will be in quad action again on Thursday when the Lakers host California, Helias and Lebanon at Deer Chase Golf Club.
