    The Lady Red Devils golf team was in action during spring break and took second place at Hideout Golf Course, on Monday, April 15, in Monticello.

    Joopy Bamrungmuang shot 81 and placed third place in the tournament. She remains in sixth place on the Region 15 top players list with a stroke average of 89.33.

    Jamie Day took eighth place in the tournament with an 88 and moved up a spot to number seven on the Region 15 list with an average of 97.83.

    “We took second again. We are second in the region,” coach Matt Provart said. “Richfield is a good team. They have a really good program. Joopy took third overall and we had two personal bests in competition today. Jaime Day shot an 88 and Madison Munger shot a 109. Since we were on spring break, we only had four players who were able to play and we still took second place.”

    The team attended a Region 15 preliminary tournament on Tuesday, April 23 at Round Valley Golf Course in Morgan. Results were not available before The Times-Independent B section went to press.
