YHS Freshman Competes in Golf Championships

Posted

Lucy Mohrweis, a freshman at Yelm High School, punched her ticket to the 3A state golf championships in Liberty when she shot 104 and 105, respectively, in the district tournament.

Mohrweis’ total score of 209 placed her 10th overall as she headed into the final competition of the season on May 24.

Mohrweis and her coach McKenzie Devore arrived at MeadowWood Golf Course in Spokane County, on Monday, May 23, a day before round one of the competition.

Mohrweis got off to a hot start at the state tournament, shooting a 51 through the first nine holes. The freshman averaged a little over five and a half strokes per hole through the first nine. Once she reached the back nine, Mohrweis ran into some trouble.



The freshman shot a 62 through the back nine, averaging nearly seven strokes per hole. In total, Mohrweis shot 113 on what Devore called “a beautiful and challenging course.”

Following the competition, Devore was proud of Mohrweis for her efforts at the state tournament.

“Lucy had a lot of fun and learned a lot from the group she was golfing with,” Devore said. “Overall, as a freshman, Lucy got to experience the state tournament and what it feels like. She has goals for the future to continue to qualify for state and keep (improving) her golf game.”

Devore has a solid foundation to build her program on over the course of the next three years. To pair with Mohrweis next season, Alexa Wasankari will be added back into the mix. Wasankari appeared in the district tournament this year and made it to the second day of the competition. The two incoming sophomores will be a strong duo as they keep gaining more experience on the courses.
