VHS golfers face top teams at invitational The VHS girls' golf team was entered in the Yankton Invitational on Wednesday, April 19.
Only the varsity teams from 14 schools were involved in the 18-hole competition played at Hillcrest Golfcourse and Country Club. While two feet of snow fell in the western edge of South Dakota and Interstate 90 blocked from Kadoka to the Wyoming border, 70 of the top high school girls golfers enjoyed 65 degree temperatures and a slight breeze for their approach to the challenge of a very difficult course.
Medalist, with an 80 score, was O'Gorman's Shannon Johnson and the defending state champion Rapid City Stevens was the winner with a total score of 355.
The Tanagers placed eighth, scoring 419, led by Allison Stewart who finished in the top 10 with an 87 score.
The other Vermillion team members and their scores were: Karrie Plate 108; Terri Upward 111; Kelly Peterson 113; and Tabitha Hubert 115.
