CARROLL — Familiarity with a course can be an advantage for any golfers, and the less experienced those playing a round — both overall as players as well as with the links in question — the larger that advantage can be.
Kuemper Catholic and Carroll, both quite used to playing the short, but challenging, Breda Golf Club, had little trouble Tuesday in distancing themselves from out-of-town guests Perry and Storm Lake in a girls quadrangular.
Kuemper fired a 179 to Carroll’s 188, with Perry well back at 215 while Storm Lake carded a 252.
“Inexperience showed a little bit,” Perry coach Joel Happel said. “Consistency comes over time.
“Alyssa (Kruger) did well, but even she left some shots on the course,” he added. “With the good conditions and shorter course we could have scored better.”
Kruger’s 48 led the Jayettes, with Sarah Sweet adding a 55 and both Brooke Huntington and Hannah Roberts rounds of 56. Perry did not tabulate the rounds of 66 from Madyson Hill or of 69 from Ellie Nielsen.
The victorious Knights counted cards from Courtney Snyder (39), McKenna Ludwig (45), Macy Ludwig (47) and Alison Schweers (48) while discarding rounds from Margaret Kenkel (49) and Erin Wallace (51).
The Tigers had scores provided by Sara Sweeney (43), Somer Sinnard (46), Arrington Jensen (47) and Kyla Boes (52), with Tyra Tryon (56) and Josie Pettitt (72) also playing for Carroll.
Storm Lake tallied the cards of Brea Baumhover (52), Haley Redenbaugh (65) Kylie Sundine (65) and Zoey McGuire (70) while Lena Soumetho (71) and Yasmine Bourommavong (74) also made the circuit.
Snyder was the meet medalist and Sweeney the runner-up medalist.
Perry will return to action Monday when they join the Bluejays for the annual Witmer-Dunphy Invitational.
