With a team dominated by underclassmen, the girls’ golf team captured its third consecutive City title Sept. 22.

"We felt good and confident about our game when we went into the tournament," coach John Brainard said. "We knew if we played our game we would be fine."

Shores was better than fine as it had the top four golfers and beat the second-place team, Reeths-Puffer, by 36 strokes.

"We weren’t surprised to win, but the score was marginal," Coach Brainard said. "Thirty-six strokes is a nine-hole score for many of our players. All the girls turned it up a degree for this tournament."

The Sailors were led by sophomore Morgan Smith, who had a tournament-best 79. Smith was followed by sophomore Kelsey McKinley (80), sophomore Britni Gielow (81) and junior Ashlee Taylor (83).

"We played well, and it felt good to win city and to be on top with the score," Smith said.

Additionally, sophomore Hailey Hrynewich and junior Rachel Swartz also participated.

The six girls worked as a team to win City.

"The whole team was my MVP," Coach Brainard said. "We had the top four scores and all six of our girls were in the top 11 finishers."

Following City, the Sailors captured the regional tournament and play at the state finals today and tomorrow in hopes of defending their state title.

"It is not about just me," Smith said. "It is about the team and how well we have been playing together. We deserve this title, and we are going to do our best to win it."
