The Grand County High School girls golf team took second place at its season-opening match held Tuesday, March 22 at the Moab Golf Club.
At the region match, Emery placed first with 138 team points, Grand placed second with 120 points and Manti was third with 72 points. Also competing were San Juan and Gunnison high schools. Utah high school girls golf matches are scored under a modified Stableford scoring system, which awards points based on the number of strokes per hole.
Individually, senior Sarah Day led the way for Grand with 34 points. Sophomore Joopy Bamrungmuang scored 30 points, sophomore Jamie Day scored 29 and sophomore Annie Kopell scored 27.
Grand had only four golfers competing last week, but two additional players have recently joined the team and are expected to play in future matches. They are senior Alexa Pierce and junior Charly Kohler.
This week, the Lady Devils are scheduled to play Richfield in a dual match at Moab on Tuesday, March 28. That event will be Grand’s only match this week, as the one originally slated for March 29 has been dropped from the schedule. The next Region 15 match will take place in Green River on Wednesday, April 5, starting at noon.
