The Glenwood girl's golf team lost a close match 232 to 229 to Harlan last Tuesday at the Glenwood Golf Course.
Glenwood's Charley Arno tied for first place with a score of 49 but lost on the playback hole to determine medalist honors. Top medalist honors went to went to Harlan's Chelsey Havick.
"Overall, we played respectable as a team,” said Glenwood coach Kathy Konigsmark. “Charley played very well and continues to do so each meet. She was driving the ball off the tee well today. This is the first time any girl from Glenwood this year has scored in the forties. Scoring in the forties is an individual goal for many players this year and is not far out of reach for any of us.
“If the girls continue to work on their game at practice, after practice, and on the weekends, I really feel we will have more girls shooting lower scores than ever before.”
Chelsee Bird was second for Glenwood, shooting a round of 60.
“As a team, we need to work on two or less putts per green and more consistency from hole to hole,” said Konigsmark. “I am very proud of our team so far. All the girls have positive attitudes and work hard at practice.”
In some dissapointing news, the Rams will be without varsity starter Morgan Woodrum indefinately after she torn ligaments in her knee in a freak accident stepping off the school bus.
“Playing without Morgan hurt us. Morgan is a consistent player for our team. We will miss her,” said Konisgmark.
In Junior Varsity action, the Rams' Maddee Sell placed first.
