QUINCY - Senior Allyson Rohde, struggling the past few weeks, broke out of a minor slump by carding the low Grandview girls golf team score at a CWAC match, hosted by the Quincy Jackrabbits yesterday afternoon.
Rohde toured Quincy's par-71 municipal course with a 107. She shot a not so glitzy 57 on the front side, but cut her back nine score to an even-50.
"Allyson played much better her last five or six holes," said Grandview Coach Scott Parrish. "I was happy with Allyson, to see her bounce back. She'd been struggling."
A total of eight CWAC teams competed Tuesday in Quincy. Ephrata won top honors with a team tally of 391 strokes, although it was Othello's Kimberly Schutte who claimed medalist honors by firing a 6-over 77.
Grandview totaled a 465 team score to settle for seventh place honors at the eight-school match.
Following Rohde's team low 107, the Lady 'Hound linksters were led by freshman Katie Veloz. The underclassman shot a 113 on nine-hole rounds of 55-58. Third in for Grandview was senior Kayla Carpenter with a 121 (60-61).
Sophomore Chante Bottineau rounded out the Grandview scoring with a 124 (60-64). Bottineau had been on a roll recently for the Lady 'Hounds, but she struggled yesterday. That was due mostly to her using a new driver on the tee blocks.
"She broke her driver a couple of days ago," explained Parrish. "She was using a new driver, one the guys at Black Rock Creek let her borrow while they're fixing her's."
Grandview is out of action until next Monday, when the girls squad is scheduled to compete against Naches at Suntides Golf Course.
