Out of the rough: West Central Area golfer Lexi Poyzer chips out of the rough during the first day of the Section 5A meet Wednesday.

WILLMAR The West Central Area girls’ golf team made the cut for the second day of the Section 5A meet at Eagle Creek Golf Course.

The Knights shot a team score of 447, putting them in fourth. Leading the way at the meet was Lac qui Parle Valley (363), followed by Benson (424) and Lakeview (442).

“We are excited about advancing as a team to the second day of sections,” Knights head coach Kari Kreft said.  “We knew we would probably have some individuals that would qualify, but felt earning the team spot might be out of our reach.  We were happy to be proven wrong.”

Jessica St. Martin led the West Central Area girls with a 92, currently in fourth place.

“Jessica had a great day. Last year’s section experience at the challenging Eagle Creek Golf Club paid off.  Jessica seemed comfortable and ready for the task at hand. She played solid golf and is in fourth place as we enter day two of the tournament,” Kreft said.

Kate Wrolson (104), Lexi Poyzer (119) and Libby Poyzer (132) rounded out the Knights team score. Lexi Hunter (134) and Emily Courrier (163) also carded rounds for West Central Area.

The Knights will be back on the course today competing in the second day of the meet.
