Tigers host Big Nine Conference girls’ golf meet

Albert Lea finishes sixth, looks to section meet

 

The second day of the girls’ Big Nine Conference tournament took place Thursday morning at Wedgewood Cove Golf Course. 

The Tigers finished in sixth place with a team score of 382, behind co-champions Red Wing and Northfield.

Albert Lea was led by up-and-coming eighth grader Alyssa Jensen, who carded a round of 89. Jensen’s round was merely strokes away from earning her a medal.

Seniors Emma Loch and Charley Fleek also put in sub-100 rounds for the Tigers, Loch coming in with a score of 94 and Fleek finishing with a round of 96. Junior Makenzie Herr was the final team scorer, bringing in a total of 103.

“This was a decent score for us today,” said head coach Shawn Riebe. “We have some inconsistency that is frustrating some of the girls. If we can get that ironed out for tomorrow, I think we will post a good score and see what happens.”

The Tigers were originally scheduled to play in their section meet Friday afternoon at New Prague Golf Course. However, due to inclement weather, the meet has been rescheduled for 1 p.m. Wednesday.
