Harfst fires season-best 48 for Lynx

WEBSTER CITY – Hannah Harfst turned in the first sub-50 round of the season for the Webster City girls’ golf team yesterday at the Webster City Links, but it wasn’t enough to get the team over the hump in a North Central Conference triangular.

Harfst withstood the bone-chilling conditions and whipping winds to post a nine-hole total of 48. The Lynx shot a 234 to finish behind meet winner Humboldt (193). Iowa Falls-Alden (235) was third.

Harfst’s consistent round included two pars at the 99-yard par-3 first and 359-yard par-5 seventh. She also carded three bogeys during her best round of the season.

Megan Gilbert added a 53, but no other WCHS scorer stayed within range. Maricruz Arriola turned in a 65, Catie Boyd finished with a 68 and Bryanna Paulson was one more shot back with a 69.

Humboldt cruised to the meet victory behind the medalist and runner-up.

Savannah Schnetzer parred four of the first five holes and held her round together late to shoot a 42 for the top spot on the leaderboard. Caitlin Kohlhaas added a 47.

Kari Hanson led Iowa Falls-Alden with a 56.
