Four schools met up for a quadrangular golf event on Tuesday afternoon at the Marceline Golf Club, as the Lady Tigers welcomed Trenton, Brookfield, and Putnam County to town for what turned out to be a very competitive afternoon on the links.
By the time nine holes had been played, Trenton High School junior Werthen Gass had edged Brookfield’s Laken Sattman for the individual medalist honors, with the THS golfer shooting a 11-over par score of 46, to Sattman’s 47. Finishing in a four-way tie for third place were Trenton’s Oakley Madden, Brookfield’s Demi Downey and the Putnam County tandem of Molly Parker and Delaney Munden, all at 53.
Brookfield edged Trenton by the smallest of margins, just one stroke, to take home the team title, as BHS shot 218, with Trenton at 219, third place Putnam County at 229, and Marceline at 233.
As a team, Trenton had arguably its best effort of the young season, with Gass’ 46 and Madden’s 53 followed closely by a 54 from Maci Henson, good for a 7th place tie with Whitney Sheffield of Marceline, and a 66 from Grace Holcomb.
