Only four of Tecumseh’s varsity girls golf team members participated in Onsted’s Invitational at Devils Lake Golf Course on Friday, Sept. 28, but each placed in the top 10 and took home medals to give the Indians second place with a score of 275. Hillsdale Academy placed first in the event with a score of 268.

Paige Watkins carded 87 to lead the Indians. Tecumseh’s Carley LaPlant carded 94 for a personal best at the event while Leigh Kapnick recorded a personal best 96. Becca Nowak shot 98.

“Last night I wasn’t sure we were going to field a team for today’s tournament,” said Tecumseh coach Kerry Smith. “I had to take Paige [Watkins] to the Emergency Room because she was short of breath and dizzy at practice and Becca was in so much back pain, I wouldn't even let her putt. Becca’s [Nowak] back responded well to a Rolfing treatment last night and Paige insisted on played through dizziness and shortage of breath today.”

The Indians are looking forward to Regional competition on Oct. 11, and hope to advance to the state tournament as a team.

“I think we are poised to be our best at Regionals,” said Smith.

Tecumseh was scheduled to play at the Monroe Invitational at Sandy Creek Golf Course on Wednesday, Oct. 3. Results will be reported in next week’s Herald.
