Chillicothe Freshman Jones shot a 92 and qualified for state competition in Columbia on Monday, Octo
The Chillicothe Girls' Golf team (6-3) competed in sectional play at Green Hills Golf course. Macon and Mexico won the team automatic qualifications with scores of 370 and 381 respectively. Chillicothe had a team score of 411. Paige Hawkins of Macon was the medalist with a score of 79.
Freshman Hallie Jones shot a 92 and qualified for state competition in Columbia on Monday, October 9 and Tuesday, October 10. Hallie parred holes three, four, five, six, eight, nine, thirteen, fourteen, and seventeen. Lexi Hargrave's bid to return to state come up just short. Lexi shot a 106 and the cut line was 100. Lexi parred holes eight, twelve, fifteen, and eighteen. Maddie Lamp has been playing terrific and worked extremely hard with expectations of moving on. Maddie shot a 116, unable to put together her typical round. Hannah Haakonstad shot a 102 and was the lowest score for a non-qualifier. Hannah parred hole number eighteen and wasn't eliminated until the last score was recorded. Senior Jensen Simmer parred holes eight and eighteen. Except for Hallie, the teams season came to an end. It was a successful season, highlighted by five players qualifying to sectionals. I am proud of all of the players for working extra in an attempt to play at their very best.
Thanks to Dave Mapel and the Green Hills Golf course crew. Thanks to Rus Madsen and Daniel Cordray the course rules officials. Thanks to all of the volunteer markers (scorekeepers) and starters.
