Trenton’s Werthen Gass shoots 94, finishes 31st in rain-shortened state meet
A planned two days and 36 holes of competition was shortened to one day and 18 holes, as the Columbia Country Club hosted the Class 1 MSHSAA girl’s golf state championships.
Persistent rainfall across mid-Missouri on Tuesday morning washed out the final day of competition, leaving state championships to Notre Dame High School of Cape Girardeau, with a team score of 319, and the individual winning score of 2 under par 69 by Sarah Bell. Second place as a team goes to Pembroke Hill, at 355, with John Burroughs third at 358.
Trenton High School’s Werthen Gass shot an 18-hole score of 94, good for a 31st place tie with Haley Taylor of Notre Dame. The top area score, an 84 by Samantha Cornelius, put the Penney High School product in a three-way tie for 7th place with Emma Chedwick of Mexico and Kayla Pfitzner of Springfield Catholic.
Other area scores included 97 (35th place) by Chillicothe’s Hallie Jones and Stanberry’s Allison Marticke, 100 (43rd place) by Gallatin’s Kelli Lynch, 102 (49th place) by Brookfield’s Laken Sattman, 110 (69th place) by Gallatin’s Megan Cox, 122 (84th place) by Gallatin’s Sarabeth Michael, and 126 (87th place) by Putnam County’s Molly Jo Parker.
