PLYMOUTH – The Plymouth girls golf team closed out their regular season at Pretty Lake on a warm and humid Monday evening defeating Adams and falling to 13th ranked CGA.
Kari Teglia from Culver Academy took home Medalist honors with a fine -1 (35) to lead the Eagles who won in dominating fashion.
Tonight was senior night for Plymouth’s lone senior Annastasia Hutchings. Playing in her final home contest Anna got out of the gate early with a birdie on #1. Pars on 2 and 3 got the round off to a promising start but a rough go on 4 inflated her score to one over par. To her credit, Anna bounced back strong with pars on 5 and 6, before a dropped shot on 7. On 8 a long par save fell and a goal of breaking 40 was still in the cards however a par save rimmed out on 9 and Anna settled for a strong 40 (+4).
Sophomore Hannah LaFree had a solid night with three pars for a 44. Junior Emma Rozycki carded a 46 playing both par 3’s in even par tonight. Twins Claire 50 and Elaina 53 McDonald rounded out the scoring for the Pilgrims. Tonight’s split caps a fine season at 13-4 overall.
Tonight’s team score of 180 was also the team’s second-best of the season.
The JV defeated CGA closing their season with an 8-1 mark with several bright spots. Plymouth’s Noelle Hutchings and Madi Hauptmann both carded 48s. Madeline Borden was close behind with a 49. Kylee Gaines 53 and Kenzie Hindman 65 completed tonight’s scoring.
“Tonight was also our annual breast cancer awareness night, also known as our ‘pink night’,” said Plymouth coach Ben Waymouth. “The players donned pink attire, pink accessories, and pink ribbons either on their uniforms or via temporary tattoos. Tonight’s festive atmosphere is one our players look forward to each year. Big thanks to Ounce of Prevention Marshall County for supplying pink towels and breast cancer-themed golf tees for players of all three teams tonight.”
