Independence came up on the short end of the score in a dual match at Solon on Wednesday but the Blue Devils made progress and competed well against a quality opponent.
“Solon is a really good Division I team that brought everyone back except for one girl from last year,” said Independence coach Karl Schuld. “This gave us a chance to see where we stood against a top-notch team. It was good competition for us.”
Solon pulled out a 165-184 win at Grantwood Golf Course.
Emma McGreal shot a career-best 37 to lead the Blue Devils.
“Her tee shots were right down the middle,” Schuld said. “Her approach shots were fairway, green, two putts. You’re going to score well when you do that.”
Allie Ksiazka shot a career-low 45 while Morgan Pascarella carded a 49 and Alexis Kovesdi rounded out the scoring with a 54. Hannah Botzman and Cayla Mazzola also competed and both finished with a 55.
“Allie has been working hard,” Schuld said. “(Former Independence standout) Sophia Trombetta has been working with her and she’s starting to gain confidence. Morgan held it together and the three younger kids—I call them younger because they are younger in experience—they were all pretty competitive. We’re finding out we have a lot of kids that want to be on the varsity and that’s good competition for us.”
