Whitney Mullenbach and Alyssa Jensen
(Story from Head Coach Shawn Riebe)
The Albert Lea Girls Golf team played their 2nd round of sections today at Cannon Golf Club. The Tigers finished the team portion in 3rd place overall shooting a two day total of 720. Lakeville South won the section with Northfield in 2nd place.
Scoring for the Tigers and earning another trip to the state tourney were Alyssa Jensen (168) and Whitney Mullenbach (169). It was really fun to see these two stay with it and grind out another trip to the big show. They have both worked so hard over the years and it is great to see that rewarded, especially as senior golfers. I feel very fortunate to have been able to be along for their journey.
Ashlyn Berven (180) was only 5 places out of qualifying for the state tourney herself. She has really grown as a golfer this year and helped us out a lot.
Jessica Vogt shot a 205 for her two day total and Gracie Palmer and Addison Herr shot 213 and 214 to round out our players.
This was a fun season with us being so competitive all season. Alyssa and Whitney will be hard spots to fill, but we have some returning players and some young talent coming up.
