Lady Wolverines win tournament on home course

The Weiser High School varsity girls golf team defended their turf last Wednesday by winning the nine-hole Weiser Invitational at Rolling Hills Golf Course.
 More than a dozen teams from as far away as Burns, Ore., and McCall made the trip to play in the Weiser tournament. 
 They picked a good day weatherwise, with the first official day of spring a pleasant one with sunshine and temperatures near 60 degrees.
 The Lady Wolverines placed first with the best team score of 178. The Weiser girls were six shots better than runner-up Cole Valley, which finished the round with a team score of 184. Homedale came in third place with a score of 196.
 Leading all players on the golf course, Weiser senior Sara Lundberg earned medalist honors for her round of 39, her best score ever at Rolling Hills. She was the only golfer to shoot under 40 for the nine holes.
 For the Weiser girls, Sydnee Reyes shot a 45 for the round. Stella Beams finished two strokes behind her with a 47 on the afternoon. Faith Lee carded a 48 and Lacey Willet, who played in her first varsity tournament, shot a round of 65.
 With the win on their home course in a fairly large field, Weiser Coach Jon Lundberg said it was a great day to be a Lady Wolverine golfer.
 “I am very proud of these ladies for their efforts in our invitational,” Lundberg said. “Sara was in a nice groove for most of her round and shot a personal best. Sydnee, Stella and Faith all had solid rounds and played well. And I had two golfers play in their first varsity tournament Lacie Willet and Katelynn Young, which is always awesome and challenging for them.”  
 The Weiser varsity girls are the defending champions in the Snake River Valley Conference and have won the SRV District title every year for the past 16 years. The Lady Wolverines came close to winning a state title last year with a runner-up finish to Buhl at the 3A State Championships at Twin Lakes Village Golf Club in Rathdrum. 
 Four girls who made the trip to state last year are back for this season and working to improve their game. Beams and Reyes are three-year varsity players for the Wolverines. Lundberg is a four-year varsity player and junior Faith Lee earned a spot on the varsity team last year.
 The coach said this year could be another strong one for the Lady Wolverines.
 “I am very thankful that I have such nice players to work with, fantastic assistant coaches, Rolling Hills as our home course and such a supportive golfing community in Weiser,” Lundberg said. 
 “I am looking forward to the things that this team can accomplish this season if they continue to work hard.”
 Both the girls and boys golfers will be back in action after spring break.
 The varsity girls and boys will travel to Scotch Pines Golf Course on April 3 for a Snake River Valley Conference tournament. 
 On April 4, the Weiser boys will travel to Mountain Home for an 18-hole tournament.
