“Both girls did a great job staying upbeat and mentally focused through two days of adverse weather,” said St. Peter girls golf head coach Patrick Klubben. “We started the year talking about mental toughness and that is exactly what they had to work through with extreme heat, wind on the first day followed by rain and lightning delays on the second day.”

With the final rounds completed, the St. Peter duo officially wrapped up their junior season’s.

“They did a great job representing St. Peter Saints golf and I am very proud of their accomplishments,” Added Klubben.
