The Alexandria girls golf team took advantage of some ideal weather conditions that felt like summer on Saturday and posted a team score of 306 to win a nine-team invite that the Cardinals hosted at the Geneva Golf Club.

Sophomore Hannah Boraas tied a school record with a 3-under par 69 -- her career low. Boraas’ round included four birdies and one bogey as she finished second in the individual standings. Lauren Contreras of Maple Grove shot a 68 to lead her team to a second-place team finish with a score of 314.

“(Hannah) shot 1-under 34 on the front and 2-under 35 on the back,” head coach Tim Zupfer said. “Her score of 69 ties Maggie Leland's scores of 69 at Mississippi National and 69 at Bunker Hills.”


Four Alexandria players finished in the top 10. Cora Larson carded a 75 (35, 40) to tie for fourth. Aisling O’Connor finished seventh and tied her career-low score of 79 (39, 40), and Lauren Rebrovich was ninth with an 83 (39, 44) to finish the team scoring.
“Lauren had a birdie and 7 pars,” Zupfer said. “She has been a steady performer for us, and may have tired slightly the last few holes. Aisling had one birdie and nine pars. I am very pleased with her play. Ball-striking and short game are solid.”

Seventh-grader Ellie Sticha tied for 26th with a 93 (44, 49) in a round that included four pars.

“She is gaining confidence and learning to play the full 18 holes,” Zupfer said.

Junior Isabella Hagen tied for 33rd as she shot a 99 (49, 50). Hagen’s round included a birdie and four pars.

“Her short game is improving, along with her ball-striking,” Zupfer said.

Alexandria heads to Brainerd for a Central Lakes Conference meet on May 3 before going to Fergus Falls for another CLC meet on May 6.
