The Lady Devils played on the Hideout course for the second week in a row, and were runners-up to Richfield High School, the region leader. Grand came in only two points behind Richfield, making this tournament the closest competition the Lady Devils have had all season.
“This was as close as we’ve come to Richfield all season, which is really encouraging because we were missing some players and we’re catching up,” said co-coach Rob Jones.
Senior Jessica Pyatt took home the gold at the tournament with a solid first-place performance. Sophomore Brooke Schultz made a very strong showing as well, placing second. In addition, sophomore Cora Johnston was 13th, while junior Zoe Wuthrich was 16th overall.
“I thought all our girls gave a very strong performance,” said Jones. “We were right behind Richfield, and every one of our girls who competed contributed points to the total. We’ll play our region match next Tuesday, and I’m feeling really hopeful, because we’ll have [sophomore Molly Hines] back competing with us, and I’m sure she’ll help us add some points.”
After the region competition, which will be held Tuesday, May 7, at the Moab Golf Course at noon, the Lady Devils hope to travel to the state championships, which are scheduled for May 14 at the Lakeside Bountiful course in Palisade.
