While the Fergus men’s golf team struggled to navigate the narrow fairways at the East Glacier Golf Course, their female counterparts were making history with a team score of 379. The Fergus Coaches Brett Thackeray and Keithon Walter believe that is the lowest score ever posted by a women’s team in FHS history.
Kinsey Irvin continued to lead the FHS women’s team by taking first place with a score of 80. Irvin’s veteran teammates, Abby Gremaux and Madison Lewis, finished second and third at the meet with scores of 93 and 94, respectively.
New recruits Val Kolstad and Annie Franz continue to improve and shot respectable scores at East Glacier.
Trevor Ward led the relatively young men’s team and was the only Golden Eagle to place in the top 10. Ward was 10th with a score of 93. Zack Jensen scored an even 100, followed by Ben Kolar at 107, and Dawson Southworth and Isaiah Kolar.
On Tuesday, the Golden Eagle teams traveled to Harlowton to compete against Park High and Belgrade High for a match-play tournament held at the Jawbone Golf Course. After Tuesday’s match, the Fergus teams will not see any competition until Friday, Sept. 9, when the Golden Eagles will host the Fergus Invitational at Pine Meadows.
