Crawford of Roncalli Leads Field + Central in Striking Distance




Class AA State Championship(s) @ Hillsview GC (Pierre, SD)


  • After the first day of competition in the capital city in the State AA golf championship(s), the Aberdeen Central Golden Eagles girls golf squad is within striking distance of Mitchell. As was anticipated by Central Golf Coach Kim Zimmerman, he thought that Central & Mitchell would be at, or near the top to duke it out for the Class AA title. The Golden Eagles got a stellar day from freshman Olivia Braun who carded a +1 over par, 73; she’s just three shots off first place Allison Meyerink, from Mitchell. Meyerink finished the day three shots under par, with a 69. Also of note, Emma Dohrer of the Golden Eagles shot +7 over par, she currently sits tied for 13th place after day one.
