Marines Take Top
Spot at Little River
The Marinette Marine Golf Team shot a 204 to top Waupaca (211) and Little Chute (252) in Tuesdays NEC triangular meet at Little River Country Club.
Mariah Chenier lead the Marines with a 46, which was good for second place overall. "Mariah continued her consistently good play today. She is feeling good about her game and is gaining the ability to make swing adjustments during the round if she needs to," said Marine Coach Charlie Siem.
Senior Hallie Olsen shot a 52 for the Marines. "Hallie is doing a better job of keeping the ball in play, consequently her scores are coming down little by little," said Siem.
Auburn Waloway and Cerina Grawey, both freshmen, shot 53. Grawey, a freshman playing in her first varsity event, stepped in for senior Kaylee Oscarson who was knocked out of action with a shoulder injury. "Cerina has been playing and practicing better as of late and had shot her best score of 60 in her last meet. She is gaining a better understanding of her game and does a good job of playing to her strengths," commented Siem on his young golfers. "Auburn hit some really good shots today and is getting a better understanding of managing her way around a course each time she goes out," added Siem.
Kailyn Chenier added a 58 for Marinette. Marinette will compete Wednesday, Sept. 21 in the NEC first conference tournament of the season at Wander Springs Golf Club.

Marines First at
River Island Triangular
The Marinette girls golf team traveled to River Island Golf Course on Thursday and came away with a NEC Triangular victory over Oconto Falls and Wrightstown. The Marines shot a 214 led by medalist Mariah Chenier who fired a 48. "Mariah is really getting the hang of putting together solid rounds. She's learning that she doesn't need to hit perfect shots to play well, but to hit pretty good shots and follow up poor shots with good ones. Her improved short game has also played a factor in her improvement throughout the year," said Marinette Coach Charlie Siem.
Oconto Falls was second with 242 followed closely by Wrightstown who carded a 246.
"Kailyn had a nice round that could have been quite a bit better without making an 11 on a hole. She hit many good shots today, including a chip-in," Said Siem.
"Kaylee followed up her medalist round with another very good round. She's considerably more confident and comfortable out on the course," added Siem.
