9/26/16 at Green Hills Golf Course - Chillicothe

     Story by Coach Bob Long
     The Chillicothe Hornets Girls Golf Team participated in District 6 competition at Green Hills Golf Course in Chillicothe. The Hornets tied for fifth in the 13 team field. Brookfield won the team competition with a score of 369, followed by Gallatin's score of 409. Trenton was beat out of second with the fifth player's score, Trenton shot 417, Kirksville 429 and LaPlata tied with the Hornets with a score of 461. Samantha Cornelius of Penney was the medalist with a round of 82. Two Brookfield players were tied for runner-up with scores of 89, Emilly Vogel and Julia Weydert.
     The Hornets were led by sophomores and sectional qualifiers Riley Brobst and Lexi Hargrave. Riley shot a 107 and received a medal for 15th place overall. Riley continues to hit the ball long off the tee. The short par 4 eighth is Riley's favorite hole and she parred it again on Monday. Lexi Hargrave was 19th overall with a score of 111. Lexi parred holes 8, 11, and 14. Lexi has been the most consistent golfer throughout the season. Maddie Lamp shot a 53 on the front nine, but it wasn't enough to overcome the 67 on the back. Hopeful that the score of 120 would get her through the determined Lamp will have to wait for next season. Hannah Haakonstad shot a 123 and if it weren't for a couple of tough holes, in the no stroke limit format, she too would have been in contention. Lauren Price shot a 129 and continues to improve. Riley Brobst and Lexi Hargrave will compete at sectionals on Monday, October 3 at the Kirksville Country Club in Kirksville.
