The varsity girls’ golf competed at regionals Tuesday, Oct. 6, 2020, at Farwell’s Eagle Glen Golf Course. 

Senior Chloe Baxter mentioned, “Regionals was a huge milestone for the St. Louis girls’ golf team. While we were all obviously bummed that we came in fourth, it did show us what we are capable of. Knowing that if we had played our best that day, we would have easily made it to state makes me proud to have been on the team.”

Coach Andrea Biehl included, “The Lady Sharks season ended on Tuesday with a fourth-place finish at the regional tournament in Farwell. The ladies all brought in solid scores but fell short to Sacred Heart for the third-place spot to move onto the state finals. While it wasn’t the outcome we were hoping for, the ladies should all be very proud of themselves. As a team, we had our best 18 hole round of the season. I really couldn’t have asked for more of an effort from them.”

There were 12 teams present at the meet and Remus Chippewa Hills led the division with a 398, while Shepherd came in close with a 405. The Lady Sharks came in fourth with a 434 while shooting only 15 strokes more than third-place finalist Sacred Heart Academy. 

The girls finished strong and some girls got their personal PR’s while competing at this match. Skylar Rodriguez led the team with a 105, while Josie Schrot shot a 106. 

The girls wrapped up their season strong, and three of the five Lady Sharks who attended regionals are currently seniors and will miss golfing as a Shark next year!
