For the first time this season the Perry girls golfers were able to play nine holes with worrying about unseasonable cold or sustained north winds of at least 25 mph.
Instead, it was a south wind of 20 mph that vexed the four teams making the rounds of the Perry Golf and Country Club Tuesday, but, considering how the season has started, no complaints were heard.
Des Moines Roosevelt took team honors with a 209, with Perry and Carlisle each finishing at 216 while Bondurant-Farrar posted a 226.
Perry sophomore Alyssa Kruger continued to flash her potential by winning medalist honors with a round of 48. Four players tied for runner-up honors with rounds of 51.
“Alyssa hit a number of strong drives,” Jayette head coach Joel Happel noted. “She is going to be a strong player, both in the distance she hits the ball and in her scoring.
“She, like all the girls, is working very hard,” he added. “This group has never complained about playing in bad conditions, and finally tonight were able to play in good conditions.”
Sarah Sweet turned in the second-lowest card for Perry with a 55, with Brooke Huntington firing a 56 and Hannah Roberts a 57. Ellie Nielsen (58) and Skylar Cunningham (62) were also on the course for Perry, but did not have their scores tabulated for the team total.
Chloe Ibsen, Maggie Norland and Anna Marie Yamamoto all sported stroke totals of 51 for Roosevelt, with Sydney Risen shooting a 56. Averi Peck (62) and Addie Radcliff (65) were also in action for the Roughriders.
Carlisle was led by the 51 turned in by Macey Brower, with Hailey Brunsen (53), Sheridan Crippen (54) and Regan Wyckoff (58) also scoring. The Wildcats discarded the totals of 58 from Kennedy Sorensen and of 60 from Mackenzie Lose.
The 53 of Hunter Jontz and the 54 of Briley Hick paced Bondurant-Farrar. Kelly Bailey (58) and Daylene Iverson (61) had their scores used by the Lady Jays, while Madison Briggs (68) and Taylor Kanselar (72) did not.
The next action for Perry will be their annual appearance in the 18-hole Winterset Invitational at Countryside CC Saturday, with a trip to Carroll Monday also upcoming.
