Marinette Girls Earn Silver at Home Invite
Issue Date: August 23, 2018
The Marinette Marines golf team took second at the Marinette Golf Invitational at Riverside Golf Course in Menominee on Monday.
Auburn Waloway led the Marines, who combined for a 420 team score, with a 92. Kailyn Chenier shot a 105, Dalanie Langlois carded a 109 and Cerina Grawey shot a 114. Lindsey Wingender finished with 116.
De Pere carded a 404 as a team to take first. Lux-Casco shot a 423 to take third of the 13 teams.
"Auburn played a nice round today. She had 12 putts on the back nine at Riverside, which is outstanding. She almost eagled #11 today, making a tap-in birdie. She did a lot of things well today and finished strong with two pars, falling just one shot shy of medalist honors," said coach Charlie Siem.
"Kailyn had a solid front nine today, shooting 48. She finished in the top 10 which she was pleased about. She hit some nice shots today and is improving in all aspects of her game as the season goes along," said Siem
"We beat our score last year by 10 strokes, which is a good sign. Second is the best finish a team of mine has had at our invitational, largely in part because they felt more comfortable on the greens as a whole," Siem added.
The Marinette JV team finished with a combined 579. Ashley Laprise shot a 122, Jenna Margetta finished with 136, Hannah Chenier had a 154 and Rachel Gamelin finished with a 167.
Marinette lost top player Mariah Chenier after last season, but with a couple of freshman, coach Charlie Siem said the team should be set up for the future.
"This year, we've got a lot more players. We've gone from six to ten," Siem said. "We've got three promising freshmen: Delanie Langlois, Lindsey Wingender, Hannah Chenier that have been playing some pretty good golf so far."
The team may not have a standout player on the team like Chenier was last season. Instead, they have five players who should be capable of posting scores in the 50s every night.
"We can work with that, and we can get that 50 into the mid or upper-40s eventually this season, so instead of having the great player that can really turn around your team and your season, if we've got four or five girls that are going to be in that 50 ballpark, with a little improvement they're all going to come into the 40s and you're going to have a really good team," Siem said. "It's nice to have that home run hitter, but it's good to have a steady team as well."
He said the team has started off hotter than most teams do, so they should turn that corner before the end of the year.
"We had a lot more activity and a lot more practice in the summer and I think that's kind of been a help with our scores being as low as they've been so far," Siem said. "They usually start out quite a bit higher, but this year we've come in a lot lower than we have in the past, so that's been pretty cool."
