Fredonia competes in golf state qualifier

OBSERVER Staff Report

NORTH TONAWANDA — Fredonia traveled to Tan Tara Golf Club to compete for the state qualifier along with Jamestown and nine other schools.

They played 18 holes set at a par 72.

The medalist on the day was Medina freshman Melanie Green, who shot an impressive round of 76.

Clarence’s Alexis Kim was the runner-up shooting 79, making this the fifth state tournament in a row she has qualified for.

Ashley Holt held the low score for Fredonia at 104. She achieved her goal of shooting under 105 for the day, but was only two bad holes away from shooting under 100 and making second-alternate for states.

Fredonia sent four players, including Holt, to the qualifier. Caroline Cameron finished at 120; Hannah Christy a 137 and Mackenzie Markham finished the season with a 148.

‘I was real pleased,” Fredonia coach Alex Conti said. “Caroline (Cameron), she’s only broke 60 once this season and she shot 58-62 today. Mackenzie (Markham) was disappointed because she’s been our second or third best all season long…but any golfer knows that if your not hitting your iron very well, you’re going to struggle.

“But their back (next season),” Conti continued. “All four of them are back. They’re excited and ready to have fun, and I’m excited for what we have going forward. We’re pretty excited about next year and the years to come.”
