CHS’s Hannah Harpster and Taryn Pearson birdied the 290-yard No. 1 at Charleston Country Club on Monday, playing even-par for the other eight holes to take third place in the CHS Scramble.
The Trojans pair also helped Charleston High take second among nine teams in this better-ball format. The best two scores of each school’s three pairings counted for the team score.
Stacy Zerbst and Malia Hodges shot 3-over 38 to enable the Trojans to finish 13 shots ahead of third-place Mt. Zion and seven shots behind St. Anthony, whose three pairings took first, second and fourth.
Harpster and Pearson reached the green in regulation on No. 1 after a solid drive and approach shot to put them on the green in regulation. They also just missed on two 15-foot birdie putts, rolling one just along the edge on No. 2 and lipping out on No. 5.
“”Both of those girls are solid hitters,” said CHS coach Todd Keating. “Hannah is strong and hits for distance. When she did miss around the green, Taryn would pitch it in.”
Mattoon’s Callan Haldorsen and Piper Sanders carded a 40 to also finish in the top 10.
