Cardinals win Kingman Invitational

The Cardinals turned in a dominant performance at the Kingman Invitational last Thursday, shooting a 216 to outdistance runner-up Liberal by 22 strokes and take home the title.
Fowler shot a 44 to take individual medalist honors, while Sutter shot a 56 to tie for fifth, McCormick carded a 57 to tie for seventh and the duo of Ryba and Krueger each shot 59s to tie for 10th. Meng shot a 65 to place 23rd.
“The girls rebounded a little from the Pratt tournament with more consistent scoring,” Cheney coach Randy Leroux said. “Kingman greens were small as were Pratt’s. but we handled them better at Kingman. This effort allowed us to cut a few strokes off each individual score. Kaitlyn Fowler played well as she repeated as the Kingman individual champion. We will continue to work on refining our individual game to benefit the total team scores.”
Goddard sent some its younger golfers to Kingman and took fifth as a team with a 257. Sydney Tran tied for 14th with a 60. while Kaylyn Brundage tied for 21st with a 64. Sierra Lukens tied for 24th with a 66, while Natalie Klenda and Taiya Pepperd each carded 67s to tie for 27th. Melody Hoy shot a 76 to finish 40th.
