The Grand County High School girls golf team placed second out of five teams at a region match held Wednesday, April 12 at the Millsite course in Ferron.

Host team Emery High took first overall as a team, with its top four scorers combining for 137 total points. Grand scored a season-high 122 points in getting its third straight second-place region finish. Manti took third with 50 points, San Juan was fourth with 39, and Gunnison was fifth with 32.

Leading the way for Grand was senior Sarah Day, who scored 35 points over the nine holes. The modified Stableford scoring system used by high school girls in Utah awards five points for shooting par on a given hole, with one fewer point given for each stroke over par. Day’s younger sister Jamie Day, a sophomore, scored 32 points. Junior Charly Kohler was Grand’s third-high scorer with a career-best 28 points. Sophomore Joopy Bamrungmuang scored 27 and fellow sophomore Annie Kopell was close behind her with 26. Senior Alexa Pierce also competed for the Lady Devils.

“We’re definitely improving,” said Sarah Day. “We’re gaining in points and skills every week.”

This week, the Lady Devils are scheduled to play yet another region match at Manti’s home course, the Palisade Golf Course in Sterling, on Wednesday, April 19.
