On Monday. October 16, ten Triple A girls played one round at Tom’s Run Golf Course in the State regional. Out of those 10 girls only the top 6 get to move on to states which will be played on October 23rd and 24th at Heritage Hills, York PA.
The tournament started at 9 o’clock as a shot gun start. Uniontown’s Danae Rugola started on hole 11. She was a little off at first, and ended up 4 over after her first 5 holes. Then Rugola settled down and ended her first 9 holes 4 over. After settling down Rugola had many pars, one birdie, and a double-bogey on a par 3 after missing a short putt. Rugola then ended the last 9 hole at 1 over and a total score of 77, 5 over.
It was a wait to find out what place Rugola got or to even see if she qualified, but she was pleased that the cold, windy weather didn’t just affect her. As she tied for 3rd place and found out that her score was good enough to qualify for states, she gave a sigh of relief. The 1st place score was posted by Lauren Freyvogel posting a 74, 2 over.
