BLHS golfers end season at regional tournament
The Class 4A state golf tournament came and went this week without a member of the Basehor-Linwood girls team in the field.
The Bobcats fell short in their bid for a trip to state when they failed to qualify any individuals while placing seventh at the regional tournament on Thursday, Oct. 16, at Clay Center.
Basehor-Linwood golfer Ashley Clayton placed 22nd at the tournament with a score of 118.
Morgan Richardson shot 124 and finished in 30th place.
Chantel Williams finished in 35th place and shot 131 in the tournament.
“This was her first year as a varsity player,” coach Ben Chapman said of Williams. “Except for a couple of holes, she found her groove on the front nine and played some of her best golf of the season. She had a good time and finished third for the Bobcats.”
Nicole Vasquez finished in 36th place and shot 132 in the tournament. Amanda O’Bryan finished in 37th place and shot 141. Rachel Van Fleet finished in 38th place and shot 150 in the tournament.
“Our other girls played well; I think some would have liked to finish the season a little stronger, but hopefully that will help them feel a little hungrier for next year,” Chapman said. “We are a young squad and have lots of potential.”
Topeka-Hayden won the tournament with a score of 365. Concordia placed second with a score of 416. Meriden-Jeff West finished in third place with a score of 432. Perry-Lecompton placed fourth with a score of 447. KC-Piper placed fifth with a score of 456. Clay Center placed sixth with a score of 501. Basehor-Linwood finished seventh with a score of 505. De Soto placed eighth with a score of 573.
