In its third region match of the season, the Grand County High School girls golf team took second out of three teams. The match was played at the Millsite course in Ferron on April 10.

The Lady Devils scored 75 points on the day, led by junior Brook Schultz with 26 points. Sophie Richardson had 19 points, Molly Hines added 18, and Kyra Scovill contributed 12 to the team total. Also playing for the Lady Devils at the match were Karissa Martin and Kali Balsley.

Emery took first place at the match with 93 points, while third-place San Juan tallied 62 team points.

“The girls are all improving,” said GCHS coach Jennifer McKay, who added that Grand’s team did not participate in a scheduled non-region match at Monticello on April 16, due to spring break.

Grand also competed at the Region 15 invitational at Richfield on Wednesday, April 23. At that event, which included 18 holes instead of the usual nine, Grand finished third out of the three 2A teams with 128 total points (60 on the front nine and 68 on the back). First-place Emery had 95 and 119, respectively, for 214 total team points, while second-place San Juan narrowly edged Grand with scores of 69 and 68, for a total of 137.

Schultz placed second among individual scorers with 64 points over 18 holes. She scored 32 on both the front nine and the back nine.
