Jada Rubalcava lines up her shot

The Lady Swede golf team hit postseason action on Oct. 4, playing at the Holdrege Country Club in C-4 District action. The team battled hard but unfortunately, the season came to an end for the Swede girls’ golfers.

“The girls gave it their best shot and left nothing out there on the course except for grit,” head coach Tara Foster said.

Ellarey Harm led Gothenburg, shooting a 106 on the day, just a few strokes shy of a top-10 finish.

“Ellarey continued to battle with the tough competition,” Foster said. “A few holes gave her some trouble, taking a few double bogeys here and there. It was tough to come back from those holes as there is not a lot of room for mistakes.”

Jada Rubalcava also played the course well, shooting a 111 on her round of 18.

Foster said that Rubalcava hit the ball well and found some confidence in her game late in the round.

The Lady Swedes finished the season in 7th place overall at the competition and Foster said there was nothing for this team to hang their head about.

“We are extremely proud of the girls this golf season and are looking forward to setting new goals prior to next year,” she said.

In thinking about upcoming seasons, Foster said that the newcomers to the team this year did a tremendous job of taking strides in their games.

“Our freshmen really stepped up this year by competing for the first time and gaining experience that will hopefully carry over to next season,” she said.
