After a beautiful April season for golf, May hasn't treated the girls very well, sending rain, sleet and even snow onto the courses over the past few weeks.
On Monday, May 10 the North Suburban Conference girls meet was at Victory Links in Blaine. A steady, cold rain greeted the players.
"There were a few droplets on the bus windshield on our way to the course. By the time our first girls teed off at 4:00, the rain was still light, but steady. The rate increased as the hours passed and, by the time we left the course shortly after 7:30, the girls were pretty much drenched," explained Head Coach Dave Ambers. "I was real proud of the way they handled the conditions. They didn't whine about being wet and cold, they just did the best they could."
Senior Katie Foley continued to lead the Vikings, shooting a 42 to pace them to a fourth place finish. She finished in second place in the whole conference.
"Katie did an outstanding job. Her 42 was her best round of the season and was the second best among players from the whole NSC. It looks like she's returned to form as one of the conference's best," Ambers said.
Emily Juve shot a 56 for second best on the Vikings, and Lauren Ibinger and Alyssa Ramberg went back-to-back with a 56 and 57, respectively. Cassedy Coleman carded a 60 and Mallory Olson had a 65.
"We broke our streak of sixth place finishes," Ambers said. "Let's hope that trend continues and we move up in our final North Suburban event at the TPC Twin Cities."
