The Lake Havasu girls’ golf team continued its winning ways and picked up another victory on Wednesday, winning a three-team match over Yuma and Cibola at Cocopah Golf Course in Yuma.

“Overall, I think the girls did a great job today,” said head coach Jerome Kosters. “The course was a little different they what they were used to but that didn’t bother them.”

Lake Havasu shot a 223 as a team, well ahead of second place Cibola which shot a 303. Yuma did not record a team score.

The Knights were led by junior Allison Jenkins, who was awarded medalist and shot a 51 on the nine-hole match.

“It was a great job by her today,” said Kosters. “She’s going to get better and better as the season goes on and we’re hoping she can make state.”

Fellow junior Jenica Delaney followed with a 52 and sophomore Gia Jehle was right behind with a 53.

Freshman Xanthia Still recorded a 67 and sophomore Alexus Nordgren rounded out the field with a 75.

“I feel happy for the girls but I know our main competition will be in Phoenix,” said Kosters. “Our main goal is to reach state again and I’m hoping as the season goes on to see more girls shooting in the 40s.”

Lake Havasu will return to action on Monday with a road match against Lee Williams at 2 p.m.

The Knights will host a match against the Volunteers on Tuesday at 2 p.m. also.

Kingman was originally scheduled to be a part of both matches but was unable to field a team this season.
