The Sterling College women’s golf team played in their last tournament of the season on Monday and Tuesday in Garden City, Kan. as part of the KCAC Women’s Championship. The Lady Warriors finished sixth out of seven teams. “The season as a whole was filled with improvement, score wise, for each and everyone one of us, but the team still has a long ways to go,” said senior Morgan Schmidt.
“Monday was really rough,” Schmidt continued, “especially with it being my last tournament. There was a lot of pressure I put on myself, but by the time Tuesday came around, it seemed more important to enjoy the game for one last round.”
“As a team we struggled, but we set goals for next year,” said sophomore Jordan Williams. “Personally,” Williams continued, “I was tied for 14 at the end of the day with a two-day score of 174, which is 89-day 1 & 85-day two and that’s the best I have shot at a conference tournament.” Williams finished by saying, “I set the bar high for next year, so all I got to do is come back stronger and beat myself.”
Schmidt had similar feelings about this season. “My senior season didn’t end how I wanted it to, but it taught me lots of things. At the end of the day, the memories are far more important than the scores.”
