Faced with gusty winds throughout the afternoon, the Lake Havasu girls’ golf team defeated Lee Williams 210-245 on Thursday afternoon at Lake Havasu Golf Course in the final home match of the season.
The Knights have now beaten the Volunteers in each of the six times these teams have faced off.
“The wind was a major factor, said head coach Jerome Kosters. “I think with the wind and everything else, they did great today with a 210.”
There was a three-way tie atop the leader board, with junior Allison Jenkins, sophomore Gia Jehle and Paige Booth of Lee Williams all shooting a 49.
The Volunteers’ Bella Bruno was right behind the group with a 50, followed by junior Jenica Delaney who shot a 51.
Delaney is still currently just above the projected cut line to qualify for the state tournament as an individual.
Kosters believes if she continues her play of late, Delaney will qualify for state.
Junior Ashleigh Alba finished with a 61 to round out the scorers for Lake Havasu. Fellow junior Jaycie Kinnard shot a 70.
The final home match of the season would typically be a day where seniors are honored. However, there are no seniors on this year’s team for Lake Havasu, giving Kosters a sense of excitement for the future of his program.
“I am very pleased because this team that I have this year, I’ll have next year,” said Kosters. “They’re just going to get better and better. I’m just ecstatic.”
The Knights will wrap up their season with a pair of road matches next week, starting on Tuesday against Gila Ridge on Tuesday. Lake Havasu will once again face Lee Williams on Wednesday to wrap up its season.
