For the first time in the history of the golf program at Murray County Central, not one, but both the boys and girls squads earned a state bid.
Both teams were sitting well ahead of the competition following the first day of section competition on May 23rd. The boys held a 25 stroke advantage over the second place Heron Lake-Okabena/Fulda squad 356-368. Meanwhile, the girls touted a 36 lead over Hendricks.
A week later the top four teams returned to the GreatLIFE Worthington Course along with the top ten individuals to complete day two of the section competition.
The day started off a bit breezy and factoring in a rain shower, the morning proved to be a bit challenging for the competitors. By late morning the showers had cleared the area and the conditions on the course improved throughout the afternoon.
The girls teed off on hole number 1 which winds its way to the back of the course and then ends up back near the clubhouse. The boys, on the other hand, began their day on hole 10 and headed out the front of the course before coming back in.
First on the tee for the girls was Kylie Frisk. The freshman stayed steady on the course with a few hiccups on holes four, five, and six to finish her first nine with a 61. However holes 11, 15, and 17 definitely gave her fits. Frisk came back in with a 65 and finished the course with a total of 126 on the day.
