FIELD TWP- The North Woods girls golf team hit the links in Virginia on April 22 and Eveleth on Tuesday, putting up competitive scores in both events.
The Grizzlies placed second in the Rock Ridge Meet at the Virginia Golf Course, right behind Mesabi East. Tori Olson’s round of 50 was good enough for a fourth-place finish, and teammate Haley Bogdan was right behind in fifth, shooting a 51. Other team members included Morgan Burnett, Abbigail Shuster and Lauren Burnett.
“We had a good first meet considering that the kids haven’t had a lot of outdoor practice due to weather and course conditions,” Head Coach Kandi Olson said. “Everyone was excited to be back on the course.”
North Woods wound up in third place at the Eveleth event, with Tori Olson carding a 56 to tie for sixth.
“Eveleth Golf Course proved to be a worthy adversary,” Coach Olson said. “While kids struggled a bit around the greens, each player noticed areas of personal growth. They are looking forward to future meets both as a team and as individual competitors.”
