State Golf Tournament update
October 24, 2013By Maribeth Frevert of Hallsville High School
Brittany Wise participated in the MSHSAA Girls Golf Championship for Class 1 on Monday and Tuesday at Sedalia Country Club.
Complete results may be seen at this website:
Brittany had a great day on Monday, shooting 95 for the day. This put her at about 34th place for the first day out of 90 players. The weather held and it was a beautiful day.
As good as Monday was, Tuesday was just as frustrating. Brittany couldn't seem to find her rhythm, and was just a little out of sync, and found lots of trouble spots. Consequently, her game suffered. She ended up with 115 for the second day. Totaled with the first day, this bumped her down to the 64th spot.
This was still a great experience for her, and something to be extremely proud of. Only the top 90 golfers from around the state got this far. For every 22 that made it out of their sectional, another 25 didn't make it, and likewise from the 8 district tournaments, where 50 didn't make the cut. And that's just in Class 1. There were another 90 at the Class 2 tournament held at New Bloomfield on those two days.
I am extremely proud of her and the year's accomplishments she has accumulated. She had a really great senior season.

I hope Brittany finds a college home to continue her golf career. I know she would have great fun and accomplish even more as a college golfer.
