KNOXVILLE — Cassidy Van Veen continues a bit of a hot streak for the Prairie City-Monroe girls golf team, grabbing the medalist honor at Tuesday’s Knoxville Invitational.

Van Veen had a score of 93 in 18 holes, shooting a 45 on the back nine. The Mustangs took third in the meet overall, with a team score of 439 on the day.

PCM girls golf coach Val Edwards continues to be pleased with her team’s progress.

“The girls played well despite a chilly, windy day,” she said. “We had some good scores turned in.”

PCM also took the individual runner-up spot, as Breanna Maher took second overall shooting a 97. Mustang Kelsey Van Veen finshed Tuesday with a 103, and Abby Van Haaften rounded out the Mustang’s score card with a 146.

PCM hits the road again Thursday in an 18-hole, 2:30 p.m. meet hosted by Roland-Story High School.
