It was the initiation to the 2019 season for the ADM girls golf team as they welcomed in Gilbert for a one-on-one match-up at River Valley Golf Course in Adel Thursday afternoon.

It was a strong start but unfortunately, the Tigers didn’t come out with a win as Gilbert took the meet 189-244. Anna West did the honors of top golfer for the host Tigers. Through nine holes, West captured a score of 23 over par 59. That ranked west seventh overall out of 12 total golfers. Emma Mellencamp followed suit shooting a nine-hole round of 61. That score placed her eighth overall out of 12 total golfers.

Monica Thomas captured three straight bogies en route to matching Mellencamp’s’ score of 61 through nine holes of play. Finally, the final counting score for the Tigers included Adi Atkins who carded a nine-hole round of 63. The non-counting scores for ADM included Mikayla Klein with a round of 66 followed by Liv Rickert who carded a nine-hole round of 68.

Next up for the Tigers will be their first road trip of the season on Monday, April 8. They will take to Lakeview Country Club in Winterset to encounter a conference triangular against host Winterset and Carlisle. Tee time will be set for 4 p.m.
