HHS golfers on the inaugural Holyoke girls’ golf team completed their season Tuesday, April 28 in the first annual high school girls’ golf invitational hosted at Ballyneal Golf Club.
Fifteen teams competed in the 18-hole tourney, and three new teams played nine holes in an exhibition tournament.
Holyoke won the exhibition event, with Laura Gerk earning top honors with a low score of 55. As a team, Holyoke scored 183 with Jordan Zeiler 61 and Briar Bergner 67. Also golfing for HHS was Alyssa Roll with an 84.
Also in exhibition play, Fleming took second with a 190 and Sterling third with 235.
Playing conditions were tough last Tuesday, with cool temperatures in the 40s and 30-40 mph winds.
Ballyneal Assistant Golf Pro and Holyoke coach Garrett Gordon said, “The girls all did really well, given the conditions of the day. It was a tough day of golf. We are really pleased that 18 teams came out for our first invitational, and we look forward to next year’s.”

The tournament marked the end of the HHS season. They will wait until next year, with a little more experience in their favor, to compete at regionals.
