Golfers see personal bests at state
Rugby High School’s class B girls golf team saw “personal bests” at the state tournament held Sept. 29 at Crossroads Golf Course in Carrington, according to Head Coach Angie Zietz.
“They played their hearts out,” Zietz said. “Four of them did their personal best. They were supportive and encouraging of each other. I have a great group of girls and it’s sad that our season is over already, but I can’t wait for next year.”
The Panthers placed seventh overall in the two-day tournament, with scores of 389 on the first day and 390 on the second.
One Rugby player placed in the top ten individuals in the tourney. Libby Dulmage, a Leeds High School student who co-ops with the Panthers, placed fifth with a score of 79 on each of two 18-hole games.
“I was and still am very excited about my 5th place finish placement at the State Tournament,” Dulmage said. “I improved on my last years tenth-place finish. Both days I shot a 79, which was a personal best for me.”
Dulmage, a junior, said she liked playing for the Panthers. She said she had played solo for Leeds before joining the team.
“I have been a team of one forever in feels in Leeds,” Dulmage said. “To finally have an opportunity to be part of a team was very thrilling to me. It was exciting and nice how the rugby girls accepted me, and it felt as if we had been teammates forever.”
