JEFFERSON — All six golfers from the PCM girls’ team recorded 18-hole personal best scores on May 2 during the Heart of Iowa Conference tournament.
The teams’ only two seniors were in the top six overall, and the personal-best scores resulted in a third-place finish.
PCM shot a season-best 392 and was two shots off runner-up Greene County. Class 3A Gilbert won the meet easily with a 336. South Hamilton took fourth with a 399, Roland-Story was fifth at 401 and North Polk and Nevada both shot 431.
The tournament was moved from Cedar Pointe Golf Course in Boone to the par 72 Jefferson Community Golf Course because of a construction project in Boone.
The meet had a rain delay after about five holes but weather moved out enough to complete the round.
PCM senior Madeline Mitchell shot a personal-best 85 and finished fourth overall.
Senior Sabrina Reed was sixth overall with an 89. It was the second time Reed has been below 90 in her career.
The other two counting scores for the Mustangs were sophomore Brooke Dross and junior Allison Wood, who each shot a 109. Sophomores Gabbi Van Baale and Alexis Dross finished with non-counting scores of 110 and 112, respectively.
Gilbert sophomore Britta Snyder, a Baylor recruit, won the tournament by 14 shots. She carded a 4-under-par 68. Greene County’s Rachael Danielson was the runner-up with a 10-over-par 82. Mitchell tied Gilbert’s Katie Jenkins for third, but Jenkins took third on a cardback.
