Hannah Boraas equalizes school record in Alexandria’s victory in Geneva
The Alexandria women’s golf team took advantage of ideal weather conditions that resembled summer on Saturday and posted a score of 306 to win an invitation from nine teams which the Cardinals hosted at the Geneva Golf Club.
Sophomore Hannah Boraas tied a school record with a 3-under par 69 – her career low. Boraas’ round featured four birdies and a bogey as she finished second in the individual standings. Lauren Contreras of Maple Grove shot a 68 to lead her team to a second place tag team with a score of 314.
“(Hannah) shot 1 under 34 in the front and 2 under 35 in the back,” said head coach Tim Zupfer. “Her score of 69 equals Maggie Leland’s scores of 69 at Mississippi National and 69 at Bunker Hills.”
Four players from Alexandria finished in the top 10. Cora Larson carded a 75 (35, 40) to place fourth. Aisling O’Connor was seventh and tied her career low of 79 (39, 40), and Lauren Rebrovich was ninth with an 83 (39, 44) to complete the team’s score.
“Lauren had a birdie and 7 starts,” Zupfer said. “She’s been a regular performer for us, and maybe a little tired the last few holes. Aisling had a birdie and nine pars. I’m very happy with his game. The ball hitting and short game are solid.
Seventh grader Ellie Sticha was 26th with a 93 (44, 49) in a round that included four starts.
“She’s gaining confidence and learning to play the full 18 holes,” Zupfer said.
Junior Isabella Hagen finished 33rd with a 99 (49, 50). Hagen’s lap included a birdie and four pars.
“His short game is improving, as is his hitting the ball,” Zupfer said.
Alexandria travels to Brainerd for a Central Lakes Conference meeting on May 3rd before heading to Fergus Falls for another CLC meeting on May 6th.
