Overall, the Boone Central girls placed fifth in the C-2 competition with a team total of 428. Scotus (382) was the C-2 champion, followed by Oakland-Craig (387) , of Archbishop Bergan (403), Fullerton (421) and Boone.
“It was a tough day there. At the start we had a lot of nerves and the greens were really, really fast,” Cardinal coach Amy Ahlers said. “It took us a bit of time to adapt. That being said, we got better as the day progressed, and that was a huge positive!
“Unfortunately, as a team, we fell a bit short. Endings are never easy, but this group has much to be proud of. They’ve come a long way in so many areas. Taylor’s journey n t’s not quite over,” added Ahlers. “I’m really looking forward to Monday and Tuesday at Elks. I know happy things are in store!
Beierman was steady and consistent in the C-2 tournament, going 44/44-88 on the tough course. She was joined in the scoring team by teammates Emma Benson (52/50-102), Kaylee Krohn (57/53-110) and Britney Naber (62/66-128). Cassidy Maricle shot 75/64-139.
