WHS's pioneering Girls Golf team headed to Hays on Monday for Regional 4A action. The weather wasn't very golf-like for sure, cloudy, winds gusting to 35mph and cool temps in the low 50's - not good golfing weather at all. Wellington Freshman Payton Ginter buckled down though and shot a 109, a score that would place her in 12th out of about 50 participants and would advance her on to the State 4A Girls Golf Tournament in Topeka coming up on Monday, Oct. 16th.
It's been a great year for the "new" team, all freshmen and 1 sophomore. Congratulations to all for the hard work they have put in this pioneering year for Girls Golf at WHS and we all look forward to their continued play next season, joined by more girls moving up from the ranks of Lady Knights. Members of this year's squad, in addition to Payton, included Lauren Bales, Taylor Heasty, Alisa Walters and Kaity Kreifels. Great start to a new program with the final chapter for 2017 not quite yet written. It soon will be though..good luck at State Payton!!
Payton Ginter - 109
Taylor Heasty - 136
Kaity Kreifels - 180
