Girls Golf shines at Salina Central

John Ostermann, Online Editor-in-Chief

The Manhattan High girls golf team had their second tournament of the season on Tuesday playing in the Salina Central tournament. The Indians came out of the gates slow but charged to the finish line able to push their ways to a first-place finish.

“It was a good win, but we have a long way to go if we want to play up to our potential,” George said.

The Indians had multiple strong performances. Senior Macie Myers finished with a score of 42 vaulting her to a fourth place individual finish. Junior Camy McAtee was not to be outdone, coming in just one point off of Myers finish, scoring a 43 and taking the fifth-place finish.

“Camy played a solid round today and hit a lot of fairways,” head coach Chris George said. “[Freshman] Andi [Siebert] looked good today in only her second tournament.”

In just their second tournament the Indians have already shown signs of greatness, especially with all of the girls shooting under 50 and having three players place individually. There were no weak spots for the Indians.

“I think we were just really relaxed,” McAtee said. “That helped us to stay focused and play our game.”

The season has been slow going for the girls with this being their second performance. The girls will have another break before heading back to Salina on Sept. 18 to play in the Salina South Invitational.
