MP girls’ golf defeats Fairfield, boys top WB/ND and Ft. Madison
The Mt. Pleasant girls’ golf team picked up a win at Fairfield on Tuesday, 201-219, led by medalist Courtney Mabeus’ score of 46.
“Courtney had a very solid round which included five pars in her nine holes for her medalist score,” Coach Jim Kelly said.
Emily Cox shot a 50 for the Panthers, followed by Haley Booton (51), Elle Schleisman (54) and Madison Stearns (74).
“Our girls were able to accomplish a couple important things in our Fairfield match: we finished the conference dual part of our season undefeated at 4-0 and we learned a lot about playing the Fairfield course, which is where our conference tournament will be played on May 7,” Kelly said.
The boys’ golf team also had a good day on Tuesday, as they picked up a win with a score of 149 in a home triangular against West Burlington/Notre Dame (162) and Ft. Madison (177).
Mt. Pleasant’s Kyle Kauffman was the medalist with a score of 35, and runner-up medalist honors went to another Panther, Kiley Miller (36). Quinn Daniel scored a 38 and Jacob Smith shot a 40 to round out the team score.
Jordon Phomsouvandara (41) and Collin Baccam (46) also played for the Panthers, who are now 26-14 on the season.
The boys were scheduled to play today at the Oskaloosa Tournament and the girls were scheduled for a tournament in Ottumwa; both events were cancelled and will not be rescheduled.
Next up for both teams is the conference meet; the girls will play at Fairfield and the boys will host their meet at Mt. Pleasant Golf and Country Club. Both events start at 9 a.m. on Tuesday.
