Waigand earns medalist honors for Panther girls

WINTERSET — The Creston/Orient-Macksburg girls golf team did not have enough golfers to figure into the team competition here Saturday at the Winterset Tournament, but it was still a successful day for the Panthers.

Creston/O-M senior Sarah Waigand won medalist honors for the tournament, shooting 94 for the 18-hole competition.

“The wind picked up in the p.m.,” Creston/O-M head coach Jan Lesan said. “But that did not bother Sarah.”

Waigand, who shot a 49 on the first nine holes, bounced back in the windier conditions to shoot a 45 for the second nine holes.

Her round of 94 gave her a five-stroke win over runners-up Katy Forsythe of Norwalk and Jordan Jackson of Winterset.

Hannah Hagle finished with a score of 104 and Camryn Somers shot a 105.

“We played very well, and if we would have had another player, we could have won,” Lesan said. “For all three girls, this is their best round of the season.”

Norwalk won a tightly-contested team competition by four strokes over host Winterset, edging out the Huskies by a score of 420-424.

The Panthers return to action this afternoon against Clarinda at Crestmoor.
