FREMONT – The Fremont Ross boys golf team may not have had its best round Tuesday afternoon, but all of the mistakes coach Jim Scharer saw are correctable.
Oak Harbor defeated Ross head-to-head, 183-204.
Will Stotz led Ross with a low round of 47 while Mason Durnwald and Scout Mosser each shot a 51. Brody Abdoo rounded out the scoring with a 55.
“We played a lot better than we did yesterday, but we’re still putting way too many high scores on the card,” Scharer said. “Too many triple bogeys, too many three-putts. If we can work on that stuff, we’ll be OK. We’ll be in the low 190s by the end of the year, I think.”
Lady Giants fall to Whitmer
Fremont Ross’ girls golf team had finished ahead of Whitmer in the season’s early TRAC jamborees. As the Lady Giants hosted the Panthers at the Fremont County Club Tuesday, however, Whitmer managed to flip the script. squeezing out a 208-212 victory from Ross.
Shelby Level led Ross with a 47 while Alana Smith was just one shot behind, with a 48. Brooke Baptista followed with a 56 and Sarah Widman shot 61.
“As a whole, I think the girls were a little disappointed about the results after the match,” girls coach Nicole Kulasa said. “We hit lower scores in the previous matches, so when we are not making those scores, we are getting down on ourselves too quickly. We talked about confidence and believing in ourselves throughout the entire round. One bad hole or bad shot doesn’t make our round.”
Tuesday was a marked improvement from the previous afternoon, as the Lady Giants lost a rain-soaked match to Bellevue, 210-246. In that match Smith led with a 49, Baptista shot 62 with Mekhia Williams carding a 66 and Widman shot 69.
“We talked about having all the parts of our games, it is just a matter of putting it together and getting a more consistent round,” Kulasa said. “All the girls are showing improvement during the round and I am looking for the scores to continue to come down next week.”
