The Lady Swede golf team has had a busy week this week, competing in the Cozad Invitational on Sept. 28, then hosting the Southwest Conference Golf Meet on Sept. 29 at Wild Horse Golf Club.
At the Cozad Invite, the Swedes’ varsity and junior varsity teams competed.
Ellarey Harm led Gothenburg, shooting a 100 on her round of 18 for the day.
Jada Rubalcava shot a 122 and Sophie Aden was on her heels with a 123.
In the junior varsity competition, Rebecca Crown shot a stellar 105, good for third place in the jv tournament.
The Southwest Conference Championship meet was Sept. 29 at Wild Horse Golf Club and the Swedes defended their home course well.
"The Lady Swedes fought a tough battle on the golf course against some talented teams at the SWC Tournament," head golf coach Tara Foster said. "We had several great approach shots but we struggled to finish stron around the green."
Harm finished in 20th place, shooting a 103 and Rubalcava improved her score to a 111, good for 25th place.
Emma Peterson also had a good day on the course, and Foster said that she is building confidence in her own game.
Foster went on to say that at this point in the season the team needs to contine making smart golf shots out on the course by shoosing the right club to finish the job.
The Lady Swedes now prepare for district competition on October 4 at Holdrege Country Club.
"Overall, the Lady Swedes are looking to change our mindset before heading to districts," Foster said. "We have to get mentally tough out there on the course and attack the greens."
