Majettes finish 12th at East-West tournament

JAMESTOWN – The Minot High School girls golf team shaved seven shots off its first-round score and finished 12th at the East-West Tournament Classic at Jamestown Country Club on Tuesday.

The Majettes shot a second-round 396 and finished with a two-day total of 799. Junior McKinley Bender shot a team-best 89 – the only MHS golfer to break 100 in either round.

“We are going to concentrate on our short game this week and see if we can bring that down to the 380s on Friday,” MHS coach Scott Foltz said in a press release. “Importantly, our second-day score would have gotten us a WDA fifth-place finish, which would have qualified us for the state tournament.”

Fargo Davies won the tournament with a 713 after carding a tournament-best round of 350 on Tuesday. Davies entered the final round tied with Dickinson, which finished fourth with a 724.

Dickinson’s Rachel Jahner earned medalist honors with a two-round score of 156.

MHS tees off Friday at Riverwood Golf Club in Bismarck.
