Marshfield girls golf takes fourth at home CVGL meet
Ana Jensen ties for third for Tigers with a 43
By Paul Lecker
MARSHFIELD — Marshfield senior Ana Jensen continued her solid season by shooting a 43 to end up in a three-way tie for third place at the sixth and final meet of the Clover Valley Golf League Tournament on Tuesday at Marshfield Country Club.
Jensen had a par of the par-four 17th hole and bogeyed the par-three 18th to finish with an eight-over par 43 and finish two shots behind meet medalist Cierra Botcher of Wisconsin Rapids. Mary McDonald of Stevens Point was second with a 42. The varsity golfers played the back nine on Tuesday.
Jensen remains in third place in the overall standings, just one point behind Megan Pokrandt of Eau Claire Regis. Julia Szepieniec of Regis is solidly in first place. The final individual tournament is Thursday at Pine Valley Golf Course in Stanley.
Stevens Point won the meet with a score of 184, three shots ahead of Stanley-Boyd and six in front of Regis. Marshfield was fourth with a 208.
The meet victory wrapped up the second-straight CVGL team title for Stevens Point. The Panthers tied Stanley-Boyd for the team championship last season.
Marshfield ended up fourth after taking fourth at four of the six meets.
“We don’t routinely play the back nine (at Marshfield Country Club), so it was a unique opportunity for them,” Marshfield coach Ashley Lorenzen said. “We typically play the front nine, which is a little easier. We did go out yesterday and teed off, chipped, and putted on every hole, which was helpful.
“You want to score well on your home course, and I’m happy with their scores. I think we did well, and their spirits are high.”
