Golf team closes books on dismal season in Arizona

The CSC golf team concluded their 2017-18 season Tuesday, placing 11th out of 11 teams at the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Championships in Chandler, Arizona. The championship rounds began on Sunday, followed by the second round Monday and the third round wrapping up on Tuesday.
Sunday, the team shot a score of 394, which set them at the tail end of the rankings. Sam Rahmig, junior, of Gering, golfed an 88 during Sunday’s round, placing her at 42nd out of 59 golfers.
The University of Colorado, Colorado Springs, led the pack with a score of 293 after the first round, nearly 100 strokes ahead of the Eagles.
Following a mediocre showing Sunday, CSC stepped up and shed 28 strokes during Monday’s round.
Rahmig added one stroke to her scorecard and moved down one place to 43rd, while teammates Adrianna Weeldreyer, freshman of Newell, South Dakota, and Tori Meschke, freshman of Broken Bow, managed to drop six and 16 strokes, respectively.
With a two-day score of 760, the Eagles remained in 11th and UCCS held onto the top spot heading into the final round.
Tuesday’s round proved most successful for the team, earning their best overall score of the tournament for the Eagles. The team managed to drop 38 strokes off of Sunday’s round, showing improvement as the championship progressed.
However, this improvement came too late, as the team was not able to upset the rankings and landed 21 strokes below 10th-place finisher Adams State University, Alamosa, Colorado.
Dropping eight strokes from Monday’s round as a team, the Eagles came out of the championship with a scorecard of 394-366- 358-1118.
After shedding six strokes from her second round, Rahmig moved up from her 43rd-place spot to finish the championship in 39th. Weeldreyer finished in 51st and Logan Kasten, freshman of Cheyenne, Wyoming, tied with Meschke for 53rd.
UCCS clinched the championship with little competition, up 24 strokes from second-place finisher Colorado Mesa University, Grand Junction.
Despite a disappointing conclusion to the season, the team is currently expecting four new golfers to join the team for the 2018-19 season, rounding out the roster to make an eight-girl team.
