Fairfield girls fall by 19 strokes
Fairfield freshman Lindsey Repp has needed very little time to make a big impact on her new team this spring.
In just her third golf meet ever, Repp earned meet medalist honors Monday with a round of 52 on the Fairfield Golf & Country Club course. The Trojans, who were competing against Pella, shot a 249 on their home course to lose by 19 strokes.
Repp also shot a 51 on the home course in the season-opener last Thursday, and she led her team with a 53 on Friday in Keosauqua.
“She’s very consistent right now with her scoring,” Fairfield head coach Joe Kruzich said. “When she gets done she knows exactly what went wrong, and I look for her to continue to improve and get down to the mid-40s at some point this season.”
Fairfield’s Ashley Henkel was next for Fairfield shooting a 64, and fellow senior Kristen Terrell shot a 65. Freshman Madelyn Swan carded a 69, an improvement of three strokes from last week’s home opener, to round out Fairfield’s score.
Senior newcomer Claire Slechta also showed major improvement from a week ago with an alternate score of 78. The senior’s performance Monday was an improvement of 10 strokes compared with last week’s opener at home.
Abby Adam rounded out the Trojans’ lineup with an 89, and simply making the tee-off time was a victory for the ill freshman.
“Abby was very sick, so it was everything she had just to get up those hills today. I was really proud of her for fighting through it,” said Kruzich.
The loss dropped the Trojans to 2-2 on the young season, but it didn’t put a damper on an otherwise solid day for the home team.
“There has been a lot of improvement. Overall we’re coming together, and I look for more improvement in the next few weeks from the girls,” Kruzich added.
The Trojans are back in action Thursday with a triangular at Davis County.
