NCMC Lady Pirates Golf competed at the Buena Vista University Fall Invite on Friday and Saturday. The field was comprised of two junior colleges and five 4-year universities. The Lady Pirates placed 7th of 7 teams with a two-day team score of +309. Winning the event was Grand View University with a +88 team score.
Individually, Carson Hall placed the highest for the Lady Pirates. Her +46 score was good for 21st place in the 35 lady field. Other scores for NCMC were 28th place Gretchen Tharp (+58), T31st place Jessica Sheil (+61), and 35th place Shayla Woodside (+144).
"The weather was quite interesting for the event. During our practice round on Thursday the temp was 92 degrees with a SW wind at 20 mph. Day 1 of the tournament on Friday we saw a big change with a high of 54 degrees and a 25-30 mph NW wind. Day 2 started in the upper 40's and got to the low 60's. The ladies hung in pretty good with dealing with the weather change and having a positive attitude. As a team, I'd say our biggest fight was getting used to the green's speed and to factor the wind into it as well. It was a good learning experience and I hope that we finish off our fall season strong with our trip to Nebraska," commented Coach Cordray.
The final fall tournament for the Lady Pirates will be October 13-14 when they hit the road to compete in the Morningside Invite. The event will be held at The Prairie Club in Valentine, Nebraska.
