FIELD TWP- The North Woods girls golf team got good performances from Morgan Burnett and Tori Olson at the Mesabi 18-hole tournament on Monday at The Quarry at Giants Ridge.
Burnett toured the challenging course in 100 strokes, good enough for fourth place. Olson was close behind with 103 and seventh place. Madison Dantes finished 18th with a score of 119, while Abbigail Shuster placed 27th and Lauren Burnett finished 28th. The Grizzlies placed third as a team.
At Virginia last Thursday the Grizzlies slipped to fourth in the team standings. Morgan Burnett shot a 94, two strokes better than Tori Olson. Lauren Burnett shot 116, Abbigail Shuster shot 118, and Madison Dantes had a score of 125.
It was a third-place team finish for the Grizzlies on May 5 in the Bronco invitational. Leading the way was Tori Olson with a score of 110, followed by Morgan Burnett, 117, Madison Dantes, 118, Abbigail Shuster, 132, and Lauren Burnett, 132.
Head Coach Kandi Olson sees some good things happening with her golfers, and with a break from tournament action she said she expects to see even more growth.
“Lots of play has been very beneficial for these kids, but we’re looking forward to some days off here so we can practice some of the skills that we realize need refinement,” Olson said. “We’ll be able to individualize our practices to each player’s needs.”
