The Grand County High School girls golf team traveled to West Jordan last week, where they played a region match on the course that will be the site of the state tournament later this month.

For the sixth time in a row this season, the Lady Devils finished second among the five Region 15 teams. Emery placed first with a score of 140, while Grand was second with 113. The match was played on Wednesday, April 26 at West Jordan’s Mountain View Golf Course.

“We were a little further out on the scores than I’d hoped for,” said GCHS head coach Christina Woodard.

Leading the way for Grand was Joopy Bamrungmuang, who scored 31 points, followed closely by sisters Sarah Day and Jamie Day, who posted respective scores of 30 and 29. Junior Charly Kohler scored 23, sophomore Annie Kopell had 15, and senior Alexa Pierce scored 3. Only the top four scorers from each team are counted toward the team’s overall score.

This week, the Lady Devils are scheduled to travel to Monticello’s Hideout Golf Course to play their last regular season region match, with San Juan serving as the host team.

“All the girls have a lot of potential and I would love to see them do very well,” Woodard said.

The Region 15 championship match will take place Thursday, May 11 in Richfield, with the state tournament set for Thursday, May 18 in West Jordan.
