GIRLS GOLF: Vols chip Knights in Kingman
KINGMAN — The Lake Havasu girls golf team fell behind early in a loss to Lee Williams on Monday at Cerbat Cliffs Golf Course.
The Volunteers posted a team score of 205 to top Havasu by 58 points, the Knights finishing with a team score of 263. It’s the second time this season Lee Williams has gotten the better of Havasu, topping the Knights last week in Kingman.
Knights sophomore Jenica Delaney shot a team-best 49.
“I thought she shot pretty well today,” Havasu coach Jerome Kosters said. “If she’s in the 40s, she’s where she needs to be at. She’ll get some lower scores as the season goes on.”
Angel Wells shot a 68, Gia Jehle and Taeya Martinez each shot a 73 and Brooke Porter shot an 80 in her first varsity match.
“We have a lot of new players,” Kosters said.
“We’re rotating girls out and getting them some experience. We’ve been putting a lot of the new players and having them rotate through.”
The Knights are back on the course today, this time at home, hosting Kingman and Lee Williams at Lake Havasu Golf Club. The match is scheduled to start at 3 p.m. with temperatures expected well above 100 degrees.
“We’ll see what happens,” Kosters said.
“It’s not fun playing in those type of temperatures and it does affect the golfers.”
