St. Joseph’s girls finished third Thursday in the weather-delayed state Class 2A golf tournament at Greystone Country Club at Cabot.
Spring Hill won the title with a 299, followed by Foreman, 335, and St. Joseph, 355.
The 18-hole tournament was completed Thursday after two weather delays and eventually a postponement Wednesday.
Melissa Hambuchen led the Lady Bulldogs with a 110, followed by Caroline Dail, 111, Isabella Hartman, 134, and Sarah Covington, 135.
“I was real proud of the girls in this tournament,” said St. Joseph coach Chris Kordsmeier. “We had to get through two weather delays yesterday and come back today to finish. It was a real grind for all of the girls. Our girls hung in there and competed very well. Third place is a great accomplishment for this team. We had three girls playing golf for the first time this year so it was a really good season for the Bulldogs.”
Fayetteville, which entered the 36-hole event as champion of seven of the last eight 7A high school state golf tournaments, regained its title Wednesday.
The Lady Bulldogs combined for a two-day total of 488 for a 10-stroke victory over Fort Smith Southside and Rogers to claim the state title at Lost Creek Golf and Country Club at Rogers.
Conway, the defending champions, failed to make the top eight and finished at 711.
Logan Tolliver led the Lady Cats at 85-82-167. Other Conway scores were: Anna Turner, 90-84-174; Emily Lock, 94-90-194; and Alexis McDaniel, 94-92-186.
Taylor Loeb of Mount St. Mary was medalist at 77-70-147. Marlena Weatherly of Cabot was second at 75-75-150. Payton Weaver of Bryant claimed 7A’s third spot in the Overall tournament with an 80-77-157.
