Majettes golf takes fourth at East-West Classic

JAMESTOWN — The Minot High School girls golf team took fourth place at the East-West Classic meet Tuesday at Hillcrest Golf Course in Jamestown.

The meet only lasted one day, as yesterday’s action was canceled due to thunderstorms.

Bismarck Century defended its victory from last year with a team score of 322. The Majettes finished fourth with 337, placing them behind Century, Fargo Shanley (323) and Williston (332).

Senior Becca Tschetter posted Minot’s best individual round with a 76 to tie for third place.

Fellow senior teammate Jaci Jones shot a 85 with Bella Dobrinski and Savanah Brintnell rounding out Minot’s scoring with 88 apiece.

Century’s Hannah Herbel (73) defeated Shanley’s Julia Wold in a one-hole individual playoff to take medalist honors.

The Majettes return to action Monday, Aug. 19, for the Dickinson Invite at the Heart River Golf Course.
