Shelby-Rising City golf came to an end on Oct. 8 at the conclusion of the C-1 district after the Huskies finished in seventh. 

Coach Sara Jensen said that although the finish was not quite what the Huskies hoped for, there were many positives to look back on.

Positives included the chemistry the team developed over the course of the season in competition and practice and an unbeaten record in the two duals S-RC played.

The Huskies also had two girls break 100, which is something no one on the roster accomplished a year ago.

At the Lakeview Invite, all five girls on the squad, Tori Perry, Alyssa Blohm, Elise Fjell, Lilli Hernbloom and Josie Gates, shot personal bests scores. Perry normally led the way, medaling at three invites and cutting her season average from 2018 by 15 shots.

Lincoln Christian took the top team spot at S-RC's district with a 386. Taylor Van Ostrand of the Crusaders led the individual standings with an 83 - three shots ahead of the runner-up. 

"Something we kept discussing and really tried to improve on throughout the season was consistency from hole to hole. Golf is a really hard sport to be consistent at to begin with, and then when you figure you only have about 30 practices throughout the entire season, it just makes it that much more obvious that you have to play some golf in the summer," Jensen said. "That's probably the biggest change I'd like to see in the girls returning to the team next year."
