Chenier Leads Marines At Home Invitational
Marinette Finishes 5th
At Marine Invite
Marinette's girl's golf team took fifth at the 13-team Marinette Invitational Monday, held at the challenging Riverside Golf Club in Menominee.
Marinette Girl's Golf Coach Charlie Siem spoke about the course, saying, "It's a hard course that is notorious for high scores. I saw it firsthand last year. We got some practice in the last week or so to prepare for today."
The team shot a 445 collectively. Mariah Chenier had the best Marine score, as she shot a 93, good for fourth place overall. "Mariah played an outstanding round," said Siem. He noted that Chenier can play even better. "She finished her round with two sevens, so it could have been even better," he said. That did not detract from her overall play Monday, however. "She was thrilled with her round. I was thrilled with it," Siem said. "She's really enjoying herself out there and just looks more comfortable out on the course than last year."
Hallie Olsen finished with a 110 for the Marines, which put her 18th as an individual. Auburn Waloway carded a 118. Kailyn Chenier shot a 124, and Kaylee Oscarson rounded out the Marine scores with a 129.
Speaking on his team's overall performance, Siem said "Right now, the consistency isn't there, but that's kind of what I expected coming into this season. They know that good rounds are out there for them, but as a team we're not quite at the experience level yet to handle tougher courses and play consistently well."
Oconto finished eighth as a team, shooting a 484, led by 11th place finisher Megan Ryan, who shot a 101. Jaden Stenstrup followed with a 121, Leanna Coshenet shot a 129, Ali Earley finished with a 133, and Liddy Hearley finished with a 145.
Oconto Falls also competed, finishing 13th as a team with 570. Katie Elkins shot a 118 to lead the team and finish 28th, followed by Kiara Spillane with a 136, Jordan Clark with a 150, and Megan Larson's 166.
Green Bay Preble won the event with a team 382. They were the team to collectively score under 400, with De Pere shooting an even 400 to place second.
