Girls' Golf: Hartwig's state trip cut short

Wednesday, October 11, 2017

COLUMBIA -- Marshall sophomore Hannah Hartwig's first appearance in the MSHSAA Class 1 Girls' Golf Championships ended sooner than expected.

Hartwig was in position to move into medal contention with a strong second round, but never got on the course after wet conditions resulted in the cancellation of Tuesday's second round.

At the end of the first round Monday, Hartwig shared 35th place in the 92-entry field with four other players with a 97, 26 strokes over par on the Columbia Country Club links. That was the same score relative to par that Hartwig had posted to place seventh in the NCMC Tournament two weeks earlier, and five shots above the medal cut-off.

With three players in the top five, Notre Dame of Cape Girardeau breezed to the team title over Pembroke Hill of Kansas City, 319 to 355 points. Senior Sarah Bell led the Lady Bulldogs with a two-under-par 69, five strokes lower than senior teammate Allison Bray, to claim the individual championship.

  • How was this tournament allowed to be cancelled after only 1 round? If the football team had to stop cause of lightning at halftime would they have just cancelled the game?

  • There are teams and individuals coming from all across the state to play in this tournament. Schools and families make travel plans, hotel reservations etc. Hard to extend those plans for 100+ players and families attending the event. Also the golf course may have other events scheduled for the following day. This isn't first time this has happened.

  • It's not the 1st time? In golf or other sports?
