Powered by solid performances from Izzy Masias and Amerika Jones, Rochester was able to edge Black Hills, 30-29, for its first win in three years on Monday at Riverside Golf Course.
“The girls were very hyped up,” Rochester coach Brian Keese said.
Masias scored a team-high nine points for the Warriors while Jones added eight.
Black Hills was shorthanded, playing with only two golfers. Lilly Nguyen was match medalist with 15 points while Linli Davis contributed 14.
“Just goes to show how much of a team effort there was,” Keese said. “I’m excited. They’ve been working hard all season. To see a win on the schedule is nice.”
Rochester faces W.F. West on Wednesday at Newaukum Valley Golf Course.
Centralia had its best day of the season on the golf course Monday, but fell 76-54 in a Stableford match at Tumwater.
The 54 points was the most by the Tigers all year, led by Mazzi Nowicki’s 20 points and Sam Johnston’s 18. Both were season highs. Lily Miller added six points, Maddy Stoeckler had 9 and Elizabeth Orellana added a point.
“(Nowicki and Johnston) both played really well,” Tigers coach Hal Gronseth said, adding the bit about Centralia’s best team score of the year. “We feel pretty good about that.”
