Carmichael stops Herbel, Majettes golf finishes third again
RAY — For the first time this season, Century’s Hannah Herbel was dethroned.
Herbel, a sophomore, won the first six WDA girls golf meets but couldn’t close out the regular-season sweep on Saturday. Williston junior Carrie Carmichael bested Herbel by one shot (73 to 74) to win her home meet at the Links of North Dakota in Ray.
Century still walked away with Williston Invite team victory with a score of 340, ahead of Mandan (362) and Minot High (368).
It’s the second third-place finish for the Majettes in consecutive days to end the regular season.
“We stopped our free fall and maintained the momentum we gained at Vardon Golf Club on Friday and (managed) another third-place finish,” MHS head coach Scott Foltz said. “We should enter the regional tournament as the No. 3 seed now.”
Minot senior Savanah Brintnell led the way with an 85. Good enough to finish in fifth place.
“Savanah (Brintnell) shot three strokes below her average to lead us today,” Foltz said. “She was very accurate around the greens and putted well.”
Fellow senior teammate Bella Dobrinski wasn’t far behind with an 87 to claim sixth place. A pair of 98s by Addison Sorenson and Mackenzie Strange rounded out Minot’s team score.
Avery Falcon (112) and Taryn Trueblood (113) also golfed for the Majettes.
The postseason is ahead. First is the WDA Regional Meet on Sept. 28, followed by the Class A State Meet on Oct. 5-6. All three rounds of golf will be played at the Souris Valley Golf Course in Minot.
