The Lady Swede Golf Team has had a busy week this week, competing in the Cozad Invitational on September 28, then hosting the Southwest Conference Golf Meet on September 29 at Wild Horse Golf Club.
At Cozad Invite, the Swedes’ university and junior varsity teams competed.
Ellarey Harm led Gothenburg and shot a 100 in her round of 16 for the day.
Jada Rubalcava shot a 122 and Sophie Aden was on her heels with a 123.
In the junior varsity competition, Rebecca Crown shot a fantastic 105, good for third place in the jv tournament.
The Southwest Conference Championship meeting was on September 29 at Wild Horse Golf Club and the Swedes defended their home course well.
“The Lady Swedes fought a tough battle on the golf course against some talented teams at the SWC tournament,” says golf manager Tara Foster. “We had several good move-in shots but we struggled to finish the stron around the green.”
Harm finished in 20th place, shot a 103 and Rubalcava improved his score to a 111, good for 25th place.
Emma Peterson also had a good day on the court, and Foster said she builds confidence in her own game.
Foster went on to say that at this point in the season, the team must continue to make smart golf shots out on the course by shooting the right club to finish the job.
Lady Swedes is now preparing for the district competition on October 4 at Holdrege Country Club.
“Overall, the women Swedes want to change our way of thinking before we go to the district,” said Foster. “We have to get mentally tough out there on the track and attack the greens.”
