Fremont High School used a different format for its triangular Monday afternoon with Lincoln Southwest and Lincoln East at the Fremont Golf Club.
The meet used a four-ball format. Teammates — such as Lauren Gifford and Avery Gossett of the Tigers — were paired together. They both played a ball to the hole with the best score being used.
“The format might’ve thrown us off a bit,” Fremont coach Matt Burg said. “I think if a (golfer) thought they weren’t going to use their score on a hole, there was the possibility of losing focus. However, no one for us played great or awful. It was just good to play competitively.”
Lincoln East’s three teams of two finished with a 160. Fremont had a 161. Lincoln Southwest only brought four golfers to the event. The Silver Hawks’ two squads combined for an 85.
Gifford and Gossett had the Tigers’ best score with a 49. Chloe Miller and Emma Shepard had a 56. Alyssa Walters and Evie Dortch also shot a 56.
“I thought it was good to have a tune-up at home before we host the (Heartland Athletic Conference) meet in a few weeks,” Burg said. “It gave us a chance to compete at the club in a nine-hole event and it was something a little different for the girls.”
Sadie Steele and Gillian Dean of Southwest combined for the top score with a 41.
The Tigers will compete Thursday at the Norfolk Invitational.
