 08/30/2017 - 23:37

Saline senior Sydney Page shot a career-best 76 to lead Saline to a second place finish Wednesday at the Travis Pointe Country Club.

Page's score was good for fourth overall.

" I was very happy for Sydney today- she played great and had a great attitude all day even when she had a few errant shots or bad hole," Saline coach Debbie Williams-Hoak said.

Saline shot 319 - the second best score in team history for an 18-hole event. Toledo St. Ursala won with a score of 313. Saline's score was best among Michigan schools.

"The team as a whole did a great job finishing second. What is a good sign is even though that was one of the all-time low scores shot, each of the girls felt like they left some shots out there and can do even better," Williams-Hoak said. "We will keep working to get better especially in the mental game and I know there will be even some more exciting tournaments out there for these girls."

Stephanie Schick joined Page on the all-tournament team, shooting an 80, which tied her for eighth.

Catherline Loftus, 81, was tied for 12th, and Molly Pribble, 82, was tied for 15th. Gabi Solis was tied for 62nd at 105.

Saline's "B" team also had a good outing. Izzy Chehadi shot 106. Emily Woodman, 113, Chelsea Hermanson, 117, and Sophie Wood, 119, also golfed.

" It was also great for our B team to get to play in such a great tournament at a special course.  They learned so many valuable lessons out there that will benefit them next year as the Varsity A team," coach Williams-Hoak said.

Coach Williams-Hoak thanked Travis Pointe for hosting the event.

"It was such a treat an privilege for all the teams to be able to play at Travis Pointe and everyone is so grateful they made this happen," she said.

Travis Pointe plays host to the Volvik Championship on the LPGA Tour.
