MCC Golf Finishes Strong at Red Rock Conference Tournament
MCC was ready for Tuesday’s Red Rock Conference tournament. The golfers had perfect weather conditions at the Worthington Golf Course. Both squads were determined to bring home some hardware. The golfers did not disappoint, the Rebels brought home one conference title, and four golfers placed individually. The 2019 Red Rock Conference tournament took place in four different meets. Conference rules stated that individuals could take two of their best three scores from the first three meets, and then the final conference meet score had to be counted. For the teams all four tournament scores counted for the final standings.
The girls brought home the ultimate prize, the conference championship! MCC started the final meet only 64 strokes ahead of their competition. In the end determination and experience helped the Rebels clench the title, 101 strokes ahead of second place. Abby Hamman continued her solid lead individually with a 79 on the day, rounding out her 3 day total at 240. Hamman handily took the individual medalist, behind her Tess Van Maanen (HBC) in 2nd and Ciera Tutt in 3rd. MCC’s girls shot a 394 on the day, well better than second place Adrian’s 431.
MCC’s boys didn’t get to post a team score due to the 2019 conference rules. However, the boys had a great day on the course shooting a 364 as a team. On the boys side individually, Jack Pierson shot a solid round for the Rebels. Pierson carded an 80 for the day, rounding out his three day total score of 233. That score placed Pierson in the lead, earning him individual medalist honors. In second was Corey Renneke (HLOF) and Andrew Quade (WWG) took third. Heron Lake/Okabena-Fulda took the conference championship title for the boys and Adrian took runner-up.
The Rebels will go back to Worthington next Wednesday, May 22nd for the first day of sections. Boys will tee off in the morning and the girls will be in the afternoon. The second day of sections will take place on Wednesday, May 29th. Scores from both days will determine state qualifiers for teams and individuals.
