The Missouri State High School Class 1 Girls’ Golf Championship was held this past week. The tournament was to be held Monday and Tuesday, October 9 and 10, but due to stormy weather on Tuesday, the girls were only able to golf on Monday and those scores were used to determine the winners.
After scoring a 93 on Monday, East Atchison senior Lauren Quimby finished in a 5-way tie for 26th place. Rock Port’s Gretchen Tharp finished in a 3-way tie for 43rd place with a score of 100. East Atchison’s Kaely Kirwan tied for 75th place with a score of 112.
