On Monday, May 5, the Watertown-Mayer girls’ golf team played at Jordan’s Ridges of Sand Creek. On the par 36 course, the Royals came out with a second place score of 214, just 19 strokes behind first place Jordan.
WMHS senior Hallie Harding scored a 44 on her way to place second individually. Jordan’s Trianna Thong was the top medalist Monday with a score of 39 – just three over par.
With the Royals continuing their stellar play, they still sit just a handful of strokes behind first place Jordan in the overall Minnesota River Conference standings. Jordan stands alone at the top of the leader board with 590 strokes, 40 strokes ahead of the Royals. However, with plenty of season remaining, a 40-stroke lead isn’t insurmountable, and the Royals will have their chances to take over first. Belle Plaine is currently in third place overall with 659 strokes, 29 behind the Royals. In the individual standings, Harding is in second with 18 strokes, just 11 behind Thong, of Jordan. WMHS senior Sarah Horlocker is in seventh with 28.
