Today despite the rainy weather and wet conditions the girls went out and won their first tourney ever. It was an amazing day as Morgan Brusven set a girls low score ever with an 88 and got second in the tourney. Also setting a career low was Hayden York with a 96 and she took 7th overall. Payton Lynn and Meghan Heskett both shot good score of 100 and 101 respectively. Tonganoxie’s next competition was Monday with the Anderson County Invitational at the Garnett Country Club.

The meet is a good tune-up for Tonganoxie’s Class 4A regional, which will start at 9 a.m. a week later Oct. 14 at the same course.

Teams joining Tonganoxie there are Anderson County, Bishop Miege, Holton, Ottawa, Piper and Wamego. The top two teams go on to state Oct. 21 at Hesston Golf Park. A handful of top individual golfers who place high enough at regionals also will advance to state.
