Marshall girls' golf headed back to state



The Marshall girls’ golf team is headed back to the state tournament for the seventh straight season.

The Redhawks punched their ticket by way of a third-place finish at the Division 3 regional at Angels Crossing in Vicksburg on Wednesday, carding a 392.

Hastings won with a 367 and Plainwell was second with a 391. The top three teams and top three individuals not on those teams advance to the MHSAA state tournament.

“It was miserable weather with the wind, but I figured if we shot in the 390s we’d get out,” said Marshall head coach Dick Hamilton. “So 391 today was good. My three, four, and five (scorers) hung in there for me.”

Marshall’s Amanda Genise had 84 to finish second. Sammi Price shot a 92, Annie Cape had a 106 and Jill Puckett had a 110.

Harper Creek’s Jozlin Johnson qualified as an individual with a round of 87.

Coldwater’s Anna Wendorf shot a 95 to tie for third place. There will be a one-hole playoff against a Vicksburg golfer on Thursday to see who advances to the state finals.
