The Tecumseh Girls’ Golf team won its own invitational tournament at Hantz Golf Club on Monday, Aug. 20 with a total score of 385. Tecumseh senior Paige Watkins birdied the par four 2nd hole and eagled the par five 14th hole on her way to a 10-over par 82 to lead all golfers. Tecumseh junior Carley LaPlant struggled with the lightening fast greens on the front nine, but adjusted on the back nine to shoot a 97. She tied for ninth overall. Despite an equipment problem, senior Becca Nowak shot a 102, while senior Leigh Kapnick shot a 104. Junior Anneka Hart rounded out the scoring as Tecumseh’s if-needed tie-breaker, shooting a 115.
I’m very happy with the way the girls played,” said Tecumseh Coach Kerry Smith. “But what makes me even happier is that the girls aren’t satisfied with the way they played and were talking about where they need work. These girls are definitely driven and are eager to improve each time they play. As a coach, you can’t ask for much more than that.”
