May 22, 2017
At the end of the first day of the Class 4A girls golf state tournament in Erie, Windsor is in second and Northridge is in sixth place.
According to the Colorado High School Activities Association, Windsor shot 35 over par in round one, while Northridge shot 59 over.
Windsor's Jessica Zapf ended day one in fourth place, with a five over par. She was the sole Weld County athlete in the top 10.
Northridge's Lois Sheaffer was tied for 15th with Coronado's Kate Griffin, both of whom shot 14 over.
"She worked hard and when you work hard, you get the results," said Northridge coach Tim Kohler. Kohler said the sophomore jumped a lot from last year when she was No. 6 on the squad, not even making regionals.
This year she leads her senior teammates and was a stroke ahead of Windsor's Jayden Muro and Kinsey Smith.
Windsor is being coached by the boys golf coach, Doug Hammond, according to the girls coach. Whitney Davis said she had an accident so Hammond took the reins.
A call to Hammond on Monday night was not immediately returned.
Windsor's Brynn Ellis and Northridge's Emma Moser are in a four-way tie for 30th place.
Northridge's Sydney Hannig wraps up Weld County's Top 50 after shooting 25 over par Monday.
Kohler said the girls are close to their personal averages, with Sheaffer shooting a bit better and Hannig a little worse than normal. But all their performances are a positive considering the wet field conditions.
The Class 4A golf tournament finishes today.
"They performed well, they were patient," Kohler said of his golfers.
