    Blue Devils show well at home invitational

    - Advertisment -

    Independence shot its lowest tournament score of the season in finishing 13th at their Blue Devil Invitational on Saturday at Shawnee Hills Golf Course.

    Medina Highland claimed the team title with a low score of 309. Magnificat shot 311 to finish second and Green rounded out the top three with a 320. The Blue Devils carded 1 36. Chagrin Valley Conference rivals Hawken (386), Chagrin Falls (393), and Lutheran West (421) also competed.

    “The course was so tough this morning,” said Independence coach Karl Schuld. “The rough, they haven’t been able to cut it because it’s been so wet with all the rain they had recently and then there was dew on the grass. The rough was four inches long in some places so it was tearing up even the best golfers. I went back and looked at 2020 and the results were higher because of all those factors.”

    Sophomore Molly McGreal shot a team-low 85 to finish 31st overall. Juniors Hillary Esper (88) and Emma Konopa (91), and sophomore Adriann Buyansky (100) rounded out the scoring.

    “We played really well today,” Schuld said. “I played seven kids today and even my seventh golfer shot 107. They’re starting to grow up.”

    The Blue Devils haven’t had much of a choice to grow up as they have been tested early and often this season.

    They competed in a tournament on Monday and then played three consecutive dual matches.

    “They had a tough week,” Schuld said of his players. “They had a tournament on Monday and three dual matches this week, two of which were extremely competitive, and then they had to come back on Friday at practice and played the back nine at Shawnee. I thought they might hit a wall but on the contrary, I thought they all rose to the occasion. I was pleased today.”

    Hawken junior Ella Wong tied for fifth with a 74. No other local golfer finished among the top 20.
