Sometimes a win has the odd effect of not leaving you satisfied, but actually hungry for more and better. The Washington High School girls’ golf team prevailed in a Southeast Conference triangular at the Washington Country Club last night, but they know that they can still improve on their performance.
The Demons’ score of 196 bested the Keokuk Chiefs’ 240 and the Fairfield Trojans’ 208. Washington head coach Leonard Kull says he is content with the victory but not ready to celebrate the team reaching its peak yet.
“It’s always a good feeling when you perform well against conference opponents. That’s the first priority. Keokuk has a real nice No. 1 golfer and Fairfield has made tremendous strides. Our score was kind of average for what we’ve been doing but the way we got there was great. We haven’t shot as good as we’re going to get for the year. It’s not even close,” Kull said.
Sarah Waite led the Demons with her nine-hole score of 48. Megan Buitendorp and Deanna Peiffer came next with their 49s. Maddie Hora shot a 50. Brenna Burlingame came into the clubhouse at 51. Brenna Weidman carded a 52.
“The whole team is coming together as a group. Maddie Hora and Deanna Peiffer had decent rounds. I look for us to come up with a really decent round here in the next couple of weeks,” Kull added.
The Demon girls’ first chance to complete that really decent round Kull is looking for will be tomorrow at Central Lee.
“Our best is definitely yet to come. We just need to get better individually. If each golfer plays at her potential, the wins will take care of themselves. We seem to be gaining some momentum,” Kull elaborated.
