Issue Date: September 13, 2017
Marinette took second at Tuesday, September 11th's Oconto Falls Invitational, coming up 13 strokes short of Shawano for first place.
Marinette's lead golfer was Mariah Chenier, who shot an 89, earning medalist honors on the night, two strokes ahead of Shawano's Brianna Zook.
"Mariah played an outstanding round today," Marines Head Coach Charlie Siem said. "I am extremely proud of how well she's played this season. She played a good first nine, then played better on the second nine. She is gradually getting better as the year goes on and it's fun to watch her play so solidly out there."
Auburn Waloway was 11th of 40 golfers with a 107, also receiving praise from her coach, who said after the invite, "Auburn finished strong today. She didn't make any real round-killing numbers today, which was good to see."
Kailyn Chenier and Cerina Grawey each shot a 113 for a six-way tie for 17th and Ashley Laprise took 38th with a 137.
Overall, Siem said the team had too many holes of nine strokes or more, and added "We'll need to limit those big scores if we want to be competitive in the coming weeks."
Oconto Falls was eighth of nine teams at their home invite with a team score of 493. Megan Richter led with a 113 to tie for 17th, Kiara Spillane shot a 123, Savanha Seidl carded a 125 and Samantha Strickland shot a 132 for 36th. The Panthers were forced to take a 216 due to a lack of a fifth golfer.
Oconto was ninth at the invite, as they had just three golfers. Jaden Stestrup shot a 118 for 25th, Morgan Ratajczyk carded a 133 for 37tth and Liddy Hearley was 39th with a 143.
"A steady round in some challenging weather conditions." Commented Marinette head coach Charlie Siem on his team's home triangular win Thursday September 7th. "I wouldn't say anyone played great, but they got the job done today."
Medalist Mariah Chenier led Marinette with a 49, followed by Kailyn Chenier who carded a 54. Auburn Waloway shot a 58 and Cerina Grawey finished with a 56 to complete the Marinette scoring.
"Between the holiday and poor weather as of late, we haven't gotten too many practices in. The benefit of this is the girls are really looking forward to practice and the upcoming meets." Coach Siem added, "We made some big numbers today, and as the season moves forward, staying away from double-digit scores on single holes will be critical in being competitive."
