The Grand County High School girls golf team opened its season with a second-place finish in a region match staged at the Moab Golf Club on Wednesday, March 19.

  Grand scored a total of 63 points under the match’s modified Stableford scoring system, which awards points based on the number of strokes under par. Higher scores are better under this system, and only the top four golfers’ scores on each team are counted toward the team total. Emery finished in first place among the region teams at the match with 81 points, while third-place San Juan had a total of 45 points.

  GCHS head coach Jennifer McKay said that two other high school teams – Carbon and Spanish Fork – also participated in the event, but since they were not in Grand’s division, their scores were not factored in.

  GCHS junior Brook Schultz was the top scorer for Grand with 26 points, good enough to take second place overall. Molly Hines, also a junior, scored 18 for the Lady Devils, while junior Kali Balsley added 10 and sophomore Sophie Richardson added nine. Sophomore Karissa Martin added six points to take fifth place on the team, although her score didn’t count toward the team total.

  Other members of the Lady Devils golf team include sophomores Brooklan Chant and Kyra Scovill.

  “All the girls are working hard and learning the basics of the sport,” coach McKay said.

  The Lady Devils’ next scheduled competition is a region match on Wednesday, March 26 at Green River, starting at 11:30 a.m.
