The Emery High girls’ golf team recently traveled to Moab to open its region action against Grand, Manti, Gunnison and San Juan, where they also took the win.
The teams compete using the modified stableford scoring system, in which more points equals better golfing. “Forty-five points is equivalent to a scratch par 36 stroke golfer on nine holes,” according to head coach Tom Hansen.
Currently in its fourth year of girls’ golf, the Black and Gold have yet to give up a region match and were led at the faceoff by Senior Taijah Price, who shot a 40 despite an injury.
The grand totals came in with Emery ranking first (138), followed by Grand (120), with Manti (72), Gunnison (23) and San Juan (17) bringing up the rest of the competition.
Emery individual scores included:
Taijah Price – 40
Sydnee Guymon – 36
Lainee Jensen – 31
Sydney Timothy – 31
Kayla Winn – 21
Sarah Swasy – 20
Erin Oliverson – 12
