W-G girls host WCC meet Monday

W-G golf coach David Combs instructs several of the Hawk girls in a practice session. Some team members are playing golf for the first time this season.

WOODWARD — The West Central Conference girls golf meet was held at the Woodward Golf Club Monday, with Ogden winning the league title by a comfortable margin.

The Bulldogs had the second, fourth and sixth-lowest individual scores to help generate a final tally of 418, easily besting Van Meter’s runner-up tally of 449. Panorama was third at 456, with Earlham (459), Des Moines Christian (472), Woodward-Granger (499) and West Central Valley (526) completing the field. Guthrie Center had just two girls playing Monday, and thus did not generate a team score.

Cierra DeHoet paced W-G with a 115 over the 18-hole route, with Paige Mescher carding a 123, Aubrey Mescher a 128 and Kayla Crouse a 133. Scores of 145 from Hannah Nelson and of 148 from Karley Jacobus were not used for the Hawk team total.

Van Meter’s Molly Carey won the WCC medalist chase with a 92, with Ogden’s Hannah Carter second at 94. Also earning all-conference nods were Lizzy Lyon (100, VM), Maranda Wheelock (105, OGD), Kari Coulter (106, ERL), Kylie Nichols (106, OGD), Antonia Miller (107, DMC), Emily Houston (109, PAN), Lexie Kliegl (109, ERL) and Cassie Labath (110, PAN). DeHoet’s 115 for W-G was the 14th best score among the 37 golfers playing.

Harlie Vinchattle (113) also scored for Ogden, with Erica Scleszinski (126) and Bekah Walter (131) joining Carey and Lyon in scoring for Van Meter while Adrienne Powell (112) and Madison Fear (125) scored for Panorama along with Houston and Labath.

Coulter and Kliegl were joined on the Earlham score sheet by Taelor Williamson (117) and Chelsea Hildebrand (127) while Caroline Dunn (112), Katie Krehlik (126) and Jessie Reimenschneider (127) added their score to DMC teammate Miller’s 107.

Jaicee Wathne (123), Darby Davis (128), Mikayla Newton (136) and Libby Beltz (139) provided the scoring for WCV, with Makayla Hoing (125) and Haley Sheeder (140) on the links for Guthrie Center.

The W-G girls will join the Hawk boys in playing in a coed triangular Friday at Cedar Pointe in Boone where they will be joined by Ogden and Madrid.
