JORDAN — The Falls High School girls’ golf team competed in its fourth-consecutive state tournament Tuesday and Wednesday at the Sand Creek Golf Course.
After two days of golf, the Broncos finished in fifth place, mirroring their result from the 2018 state tournament.
The Broncos recorded a team score of 735. Senior Kenzie Wenberg had the best individual score of 174 shots.
Individual scores are listed below:
Kenzie Wenberg (174)
Olivia Wright (181)
Morgan Rasmussen (190)
Maggie Roeder (190)
Keirra Aasen (228)
Kelby Anderson (242)
Tuesday, the Broncos and the rest of the golfers had to contend with downpours throughout the day.
Through the rain and wind, the Broncos recorded a team score of 357 to put them in fifth place after day one.
However, Bronco head coach Tony Casareto said he made sure the Broncos were prepared for whatever Mother Nature threw at them.
“I made sure we were prepared,” he said. “We had umbrellas and dry towels, and we made sure we had our rain gloves and rain suits.”
Casareto went on to say no matter how prepared you are, playing golf in the rain is always a challenge.
“Rain is always going to encumber your swing at least a little bit,” he said. “The spring in the Falls wasn’t the nicest so our kids were used to playing in adverse conditions.”
The weather Wednesday was clear but windy for the Broncos.
While the Broncos took the challenge of the front-nine well, they began to show struggles in the latter half of the course.
These struggles kept them in fifth place throughout the rest of the tournament.
Casareto said although he and his team wished to place higher than fifth, they are still proud of all the achievements they made during the season.
“This was a special group of girls,” he said. “To make it down here four-consecutive years and to finish fifth in back-to-back years, I know they have a lot to be proud of. I know we wanted to at least get third to bring home a trophy, but I couldn’t be more proud of them and I know their parents feel the same way.”
