PANORA — Colfax-Mingo’s girls’ golf team was not at its best on Monday at Lake Panorama National Golf Course.
The Tigerhawks were several shots above their average on a tough course, but they did well enough to advance to the Class 2A Region 4 final after a runner-up finish.
Van Meter ran away with the team title, shooting a 405. Colfax-Mingo was second with a 426 and were 64 strokes better than third place Des Moines Christian (490) and Woodward-Granger (490).
The top two teams at each regional advance to the next round, unless the host school finishes in the top two. If that happens, they take a third team.
“Most of our girls were disappointed with their scores, but Panorama is a very challenging course with lots of water and out of bounds in play,” Colfax-Mingo golf coach Mike Underwood said. “A tough day for sure, but we did enough to get through and that gives us a shot next Monday.
Colfax-Mingo’s Delaney Underwood finished third overall but had an off day with a 91. Van Meter’s Kylie Carey and London Willie were the medalist and runner-up medalist with an 82 and 86, respectively.
The other three counting scores for Colfax-Mingo came from Brielle Reed (108), Shanen Shedenhelm (111) and Kira Warrick (116). Sydni Hostetter (121) and Reghan Robinette (127) had non-counting scores.
The Tigerhawks play for a shot at a state team berth in the Region 4 final at 10 a.m. next Monday in Pleasantville.
