The Grand County High School girls golf team placed second in its region match last Wednesday, April 19 at the Palisade Golf Course in Sterling, Utah.

The Lady Devils’ top four golfers scored a total of 119 points at the match, while winner Emery High scored 126.

“We’re getting closer to Emery. Only seven points out this time,” said GCHS head coach Christina Woodard afterward. Host team Manti placed third with 62 points, while Gunnison took fourth with 33 points and San Juan placed fifth with 17 points.

Leading the way for Grand was senior Sarah Day, who scored 35 points. Sophomore Joopy Bamrungmuang recorded a 31, and fellow sophomores Annie Kopell and Jamie Day scored 27 and 26, respectively.

Also playing for the Lady Devils but not scoring among the top four were junior Charly Kohler, who shot a 14, and senior Alexa Pierce, who scored 12.

This week, the Lady Devils were scheduled to travel to Salt Lake City area to take part in a region match at the Mountain View Golf Course in West Jordan, the same course where the state tournament will be held next month, on May 18. The Lady Devils were scheduled to play the other Region 15 teams on Wednesday, April 26, starting at 11 a.m.
