Golfers battle storms at D-T meet

Grand Island.

GRAND ISLAND — The first challenge of the season for area golfers wasn’t just other golfers.

A morning downpour delayed the start of the inaugural Doniphan-Trumbull girls golf invite and then a midday storm cut short the competition from 18 holes to nine.

Brandi Lemek, a two-time state medalist for the Cardinals, said she could play through rain, wind and even snow. The junior showed that grit by capturing the individual title after a 9-hole round of 44 at the Indianhead Country Club on Monday.

“(The weather) didn’t affect my game that much,” she said. “It would’ve been nice to play 18 holes today.”

The Adams Central girls golf team placed second overall with a team score of 205, as three individuals medaled in the top 10. Mari Sayer led the Patriots with a third-place round of 47. Bailey Hoins was sixth with a 50 and Elyse Keller was ninth with a 52.
