After their season opener was delayed due to the heat index, the Lake Havasu girls’ golf team started its season with a win over Lee Williams on Thursday at Cerbat Cliffs Golf Course in Kingman.
The Knights finished with a score of 217, 13 strokes ahead of Lee Williams.
“The delayed start to our season helped us immensely and I’m proud of the girls, they did very well today,” said head coach Jerome Kosters.
The medalist for the match was Jenica Delaney who shot a 45.
“It was great job for her today,” said Kosters. “If she keeps it up, she could end going to state, like she did last year.”
Gia Jehle finished second for Lake Havasu and shot a 49, while Allison Jenkins scored a 60.
Angel Wells shot a 63 and Xanthia Stills finished with a 66.
“The course played fast but it was in great condition,” said Kosters. “For some of the girls who were playing on here for the first time, they did great and I know playing at home on a course they’re familiar with will help bring those scores down.”
Lake Havasu will return to action on Tuesday against Kingman at 2 p.m. at Lake Havasu Golf Club.
The boys’ golf team was set to host its first match of the season on Thursday against Cortez and Verrado, but was rescheduled due to the heat index.
The Knights instead will host two seperate matches, facing Cortez on Oct. 3 and Verrado on Oct. 18.
Lake Havasu will take on Copper Canyon next Thursday at Falcon Golf Course in Litchfield Park at 2 p.m.
