Charger girls golf opens season with third-place showing in WCC West meet


Sports Editor

GLENCOE – The DC girls golf team opened the 2019 season with a Wright County Conference West meet at Glencoe Country Club.

The Chargers finished in third place, with a team score of 232. Litchfield appears to be the early-season favorite, winning handily by 30 strokes over second-place Annandale.

Brooke Harmala paced the Chargers with a seventh-place finish and a score of 50.

Melanie Janckila (57), Kayla Grochow (59), Janie Ryynanen (66), and Emmy Haataja (67) rounded out the scoring.

Coach Jon Ring said it was tough opening the season with a conference meet.

“There were some jitters with people playing new positions, and we learned a few things,” Ring said. “We have plenty to work on in the upcoming weeks.”

The Chargers’ next scheduled meet is Tuesday at Litchfield, weather permitting.
