Marines & Blue Devils Advance to D2 Golf Sectional

Issue Date: October 6, 2021

After a disappointing North Eastern Conference meet last week, the Marinette girls golf team channeled that disappointment into a strong performance at regionals in Luxemburg-Casco on Wednesday.

Playing at Northbrook Golf Course, Marinette's girls shot a 404, second to only Freedom's 397, to qualify for sectionals.

Senior Lindsey Wingender led the Marines with a 97, while freshman Kennedy Polomis carded a 98. They were fifth and sixth of 43 golferes, respectively.

"Kennedy did a really nice job of keeping the ball in play and hitting smart shots. She shot a 98 and that's really great for her and great for the team, so we were excited about that," Marines assistant coach Taylor Pedersen said. "Lindsey had a couple blow-up holes, but she did a pretty good job of not really letting that affect her which is great to see, because at the beginning of the year, they all kind of struggled with that, so to see that improve helped everyone."

Dufrane was especially happy to see Polomis break 100 for the first time.

"For her breaking out of 100 was a pretty amazing day. I've shot some really great rounds in my career, but I don't think there's ever going to be one that I remember more than when I broke 100 and got into the 90s. I've shot 70s, I've shot 60s, there's nothing better than breaking 100," Dufrane, who played Division 1 college golf at the University of South Dakota, said. "So I hope that sits with her for a little bit and she can really enjoy the moment and just look forward to next week and try to do it again."

Camryn Ferm tied for eighth with a 102, Dalanie Langlois shot a 107 to tie for 15th and Hannah Chenier tied for 21st at 110.

Pedersen said Ferm and Chenier had good front nines, while Langlois shot a 51 on the back nine after a 56 on the front.

"Overall, I think having consistent scores like that was nice to see," Pedersen said. As a whole, I think we had a lot of girls score lower than they normally do, or lower than they did last week, and that's really what we wanted. I think we wanted to improve off of last week's round at conference. We had a little bit of a sour taste in our mouth after that one, and they knew they could do better. For the most part, we did that today, so I'm pretty excited about that."

Marines head coach Abby Dufrane echoed what Pedersen said.

"I think it's a little bit of fire, a little bit of wanting revenge. That was a tough pill to swallow," Dufrane said of taking third at the North Eastern Conference meet last week. "I know as coaches, we're competitive, I know our girls are super competitive, so it's just a tough pill to swallow and I think we wanted a little revenge on the course, and I would easily say that we got that done this week. I think we just take that momentum and bring that Tuesday next week and keep that going, because these girls can do something really great, and I think they just proved it to themselves and now they're eager for more."

The top four teams advanced to sectionals, with Oconto also qualifying. The Blue Devils took fourth place with a 435.

Annika Schleuter tied for eighth with a 102. Michayla Lenonard and Lilli Leary tied one another for 105th, Taylor Miller carded a 123 for 37th and Madison Sikora was 42nd (137).

Oconto's season average was a 440, and the Blue Devils beating their average by five strokes turned out to be very important.

Oconto Falls came up just short of a sectional berth, shooting a 437, taking fifth and falling short by two strokes.

"On a very difficult course, we were able to improve on our average by five strokes. Our top three golfers played well and would have qualified for sectionals as individuals if we did not advance as a team," Oconto coach Russ Young said. "We're hoping to improve upon our score from Northbrook when we travel to Hilly Haven Golf Course."

Despite the team missing out on sectionals, Oconto Falls junior Kate Pytleski tied for 10th, the second-best score of individuals not a team to qualify for state. Pytleski tied for 10th with a 104.

"Kate did a very nice job at regionals," Panthers coach Paul Luebke said. "She managed her game well and was pretty consistent, which led her to being the No. 2 qualifier individually. I'm looking forward to her playing a much more consistent round at sectionals."

For the rest of the Panther team, Kenadee Seidl tied for 17th with a 108, Alexis Euclide was 24th with a 112, Kloeigh Seidl tied for 25th (113) and Danielle Darby tied for 33rd with a 121 in her final outing as a Panther. Euclide and Darby are the only seniors on the Oconto Falls roster.

"Regionals was a struggle for us as a team," Luebke said. "Bright spot for us is we bring back our top three golfers for next year."

The top three individual scores on the day were by Freedom seniors Callie Berg and Emma Laundrie, who shot 92 and 93, respectively. Seymour's Courtney Bunnell and Luxemburg-Casco's Lydia Vandenhouten tied for third with 96s.

Freedom and Seymour will join Marinette and Oconto at the sectional meet, to be played Tuesday morning at Hilly Haven in De Pere.



Marines Finish Fifth

at D2 Sectional

Marinette and Oconto's golf seasons ended at the sectional meet in Wrightstown on Tuesday.

The top two teams advanced from the eight-team sectional, with Freedom and the Prairie School doing so with respective scores of 360 and 364.

Marinette tied Seymour for fifth with a 402, marking the end of the Marine careers of Lindsey Wingender, Hannah Chenier and Dalanie Langlois.

The trio made up Marinette's top three golfers on Tuesday, with Wingender's 91 the team's best. She tied for ninth in the field of 48 overall, coming up two strokes short of tying for sixth place, which would have earned her a playoff for individual state qualification. It was Wingender's career best score.

"We saw a lot of great swings from her today," Marinette coach Abby Dufrane said. "We just let her stay in her groove and she proved that she can shoot a really great score."

Wingender was emotional after her last swings as a Marine, but she could be proud of the golf she played in her final outing.

"It's really emotional right now. Even the relationships with the other teams like Freedom, they just really make the day better. It helped me golf a lot better throughout the day," Wingender said.

Chenier tied for 24th with a 100. That was also a career best for her. She was happy with her score, with a 48 on the front nine and a 52 on the back, and with her team's season.

"I'm pretty excited about making it to sectionals here," she said. "Just forwarding from regionals on, that was pretty exciting, so I was really happy with the team and how we played, even though we didn't advance to state, but still I'm so proud of the team and how we finished out."

Langlois carded a 102, tying for 27th.

"It didn't go the way I wanted it to for myself. The team actually did pretty good. I'm just going to miss all the people," Langlois said. "Definitely my teammates. I think that's what kind of kept me together. The van rides are really fun and the coaches make everything enjoyable. Just having good coaches and great teammates just makes it a lot more fun."

Camryn Ferm, a junior, was 37th with a 109 and freshman Kennedy Polomis shot a 111 to tie for 39th.

"Honestly, I think we kind of had zero expectations going into today. We knew that this was going to be a really strong field and really strong sectional," Dufrane said. "We've seen the Prairie School, I've seen Catholic Memorial personally. We know that they've very, very, very good teams. Obviously we see Freedom everyday, almost, and they deserve to go, so we kind of went in with those expectations where if we stick to our game, we'll make a score, and honestly, we saw some really great scores today."

Dufrane will miss all the seniors and what they brought to the team.

"It brought me back a little bit. They put their heart and soul into this team and they're a bunch of leaders for those young girls. We couldn't be happier to have them on our team and I couldn't be happier to coach them," Dufrane said. "I get emotional just thinking about it because I'm going to miss their laughs at practice, their jokes, all those things. Their energy and effort they bring is second-to-none. You can't ask for something better."

It'll be on to the recruiting trail to find players to join Ferm and Polomis on next year's roster and keep Marinette's winning tradition alive.

Oconto shot a 442 as a team to take eighth. Michayla Leonard tied for 21st with a 97, Lilli Leary tied for 31st with a 104, Annika Schleuter was 35th with a 107, Madison Sikora shot a 134 for 47th and Taylor Miller took 48th at 137.

Leonard and Leary are seniors. Leonard will be playing at St. Norbert College next year.

Schleuter is a junior, while Sikora is a sophomore and Miller is a freshman. Oconto coach Russ Young said it was good to get this sectional experience for those young players. It was the first time in his eight years as coach that the team made it to sectionals.

"Eight years to get here has been a while. I've had individuals qualify," he said. "If we hadn't qualified as a team, our first three golfers would have qualified as individuals, so that was nice to have my sophomore and freshman get the experience of being here. There's been moments where maybe it's been a bit bigger than they were ready for, but that's what this is all about."

Oconto Falls individual qualifier Kate Pytleski also saw her season end Tuesday. The junior shot a 101 to tie for 26th.

In addition to the two team qualifiers for state, Wrightstown's Danielle Bruecker (86), May Shimek of Xavier (86) and Denmark's Lilly Kaminski (89) all advanced to state.
