Allison?Farrell tees off on hole No. 1 for the Lady Leaf golf team Sept. 9 against Alleman and Rock Island.

Geneseo’s Lady Leaf golfers hosted the Rock Island Lady Rocks and the Alleman Lady Pioneers Sept. 9 at the Geneseo Country Club and it was Alleman that emerged with the victory.

Alleman ended with a combined team score of 190, followed by Geneseo in second with a 206 and Rock Island, a 209.

“We had a tough day,” said head coach Judi?Nash. “We were off all weekend and off Monday due to the rain, so we struggled a bit. But it was an off day for everyone.”

Geneseo’s Kelsey Lieving and Alleman’s Katie Moore shared medalist honors as both shot a 43 for the course.

Allison Farrell carded a 48 for the par 35 course, while teammate Karah Bishop recorded a 56. Kelsey Wirth rounded out the top four scores with a 59.

Alyssa Wheeler finished the course with a 62, while Taylor Cahalan came in with a 65.

Geneseo’s junior varsity fell to Alleman, 234-243. The Lady Leafs’ top four scores came from McKenzie Carey, 55; Stephanie Crippen, 56; and Emilee Green and Randi Pullen, both had 66s.

The Lady Leafs (6-2 overall) will travel to Galesburg next to face the Silver Streaks at 3:45 p.m. Sept. 15.

“It is a rebuilding year and a lot of girls need experience,” said Nash. “And the more they play the more experience they will get and you can’t get it any other way. But I?am very pleased so far to be at 6-2.”
