Weeks medals at Spencer Invitational

Wednesday, May 9, 2018

Spirit Lake didn't turn in a team score at Saturday's Spencer Invitational, but that doesn't mean the Indians went away empty-handed.

"We had an absolute gem of a day down at the Spencer Country Club," coach Lucas Doxtad said. "The course was in great shape. The girls were able to play the ball down for the first time this season. It was a great day."

Marisa Weeks turned in a score of 80 to claim medalist honors at the Spencer Golf & Country Club. She turned in equal scores of 40 on the front nine and the back nine.

Weeks finished six strokes ahead of Katie Schweers of Carroll Kuemper. Knight teammate McKenna Ludwig finished seven strokes back with an 87.

"Marisa Weeks went out and played marvelous golf," Doxtad said. "Her driving off the tee was outstanding. Her iron selection and distance control was superb. A little work around the greens and she will be in full swing. Just a great effort all around."

Jordyn Tepfer and Adrie Stecker accompanied Weeks to Spencer and Tepfer finished in a three-way tie for 24th. She carded a 57 on the front nine and a 56 on the back nine for a score of 113.

"Tepfer went out and put together a nice 18 holes the first time she has played a full 18 hole round," Doxtad said. "Adrie Stecker went out and was able to learn some things and have a great golf experience for a young freshman."
