PCM finishes third at home invite

MONROE — Playing under less than ideal conditions, PCM’s girls’ golf team finished third at its home invitational on April 25 at Gateway Recreation Golf Course.

The Mustangs shot a 403, tying with Heart of Iowa Conference rival Gilbert, but the Tigers took second on a tiebreaker.

Fellow HOIC foe South Hamilton won the tournament with a 396.

The golfers started their day under cloudy and windy conditions but rain eventually moved in about halfway through the round.

Mack Bussan was the runner-up medalist with a career-best score of 88. She lost by two strokes to Gilbert’s Ali Austin.

PCM’s other three counting scores came from Brooke Dross (102), Lexi Dross (105) and Gabbi Van Baale (108). Brooke Dross finished ninth overall.

The two non-counting scores for the Mustangs came from Allison Wood (120) and Magan Van Haaften (146).

The Mustangs compete in the Newton Invitational at 3:30 p.m. on May 3 in Newton.
