The Alexandria and Edina girls golf teams took part in 9-hole dual on Thursday at Braemar Golf Club in Edina that resulted in a tie.

Each team had eight golfers in the meet and the top four scores from the players listed in the lineup from positions one through six, are counted towards the team scores (positions seven and eight are technically exhibition scores).

The top four scores from the top six positions from each team combined to be 159.

“The meet was a fun opportunity for our players to get back on the course and play a very competitive team,” Alexandria head coach Tim Zupfer said.

Alexandria is the defending Class AAA state champion and Edina finished third in Class AAA at the 2021 state championships.


Ellie Sticha, an 8th-grader, led the way for the Cardinals by posting the lowest-score on the team with a score of 38, a personal best 9-hole score. She had three birdies, three pars, one bogey and two double-bogeys while having a team-low 14 putts.

“She was very pleased with her ball-striking, which included reaching a par 5 in two shots,” Zupfer said.

Cora Larson finished just behind Sticha with a score of 39. Larson had six pars and three bogeys. Larson hit all six fairways off the tee and hit six out of the nine greens in regulation.

Hannah Booras and Lauren Rebrovich posted scores of 41.

“Lauren scored much better than a week ago,” Zupfer said. “She hit four out of six fairways and five out of nine greens in regulation. She was very excited with improved wedge play. Hannah was a little frustrated with her short game. Overall, her ball-striking was good, hitting four out of six fairways.”

Rachel Bowen posted a score of 43. Bowen had two pars and seven bogeys while hitting four out of six fairways in regulation and three out of nine greens in regulation.

Thursday’s meet was the first time that Isabella Hagen, Kennedy Ellingson and Teryn Jaworski have played this spring. Hagen posted a score of 51, while Ellingson finished with 53 and Jaworski finished with a score of 55.

Ellingson and Jaworski, both of whom are freshman, got their first varsity level experience on Thursday.


Edina’s lowest score came from Kate Burk who posted a 37.

Alexandria has a busy week ahead with a conference meet at The Territory Golf Course in St. Cloud at 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday and an invite/conference meet at the Alexandria Golf Club on Wednesday at 10 a.m.
