On Thursday evening, the Monroe Girl’s Varsity Golf Team had its second meet of the season by playing in a meet against Chelsea High School, where Monroe lost 215-201. The event started at 3 p.m., and groups of golfers from each team cycled through nine different holes, starting on different ones. 

Among the Monroe team, senior Erin Mercer played particularly well, shooting 50 for nine holes. 

Coach Eernie Sellers said he has big hopes for this season, wanting to win on high levels.

“We have 10 girls this year that are working hard. Our first goal is to win the Monroe County Championship,” Seller said.

The girls on the team also have individual goals, especially Junior Kendra Zureki.

“My personal goal is to make all-county again and continue playing the game with my team,” said Zureki.

While they may not have managed to win this meet, the team still took positives out of the event, especially senior Mackenzie Mielke.

“Out of the entire afternoon, I reflected most on our team’s character,” said Mielke. “It’s good to see our younger girls hit their best score for the season and see them grow.”
