Dannenbring records personal best at Hub City Invite

ABERDEEN—It was a career-best day for Quinn Dannenbring on Thursday.

The seventh-grader recorded a personal-best 82 and tied for sixth place at the Hub City Invitational at Moccasin Creek Country Club. She was three shots away from tying for third place.

"She was really just focused (Thursday) and she was hitting the ball straight," Mitchell coach Keri Munsen said. "She stayed out of trouble and she kept her mental focus. She's starting to learn the game of golf has a lot to do with the mental part. She kept it together and that really gave her the results that she got (Thursday)."

Dannenbring had never shot below a 90 prior to Thursday's round. But she battled through blustery conditions to record her personal best.

"The conditions weren't the best," Munsen said. "It got to be very windy there for a while. So she really held it together and I am very proud of her for keeping it together like that."

Aberdeen Central's Cassidy Gough was the individual medalist with 2-under-par 70. Sioux Falls O'Gorman won the team title with a 319, while Aberdeen Central was second with a 328.

The Kernels were fourth with a 372. Mitchell's Masy Mock tied for 12th with an 85. Kailee Henglefelt shot a 95 and Allison Meyerink shot a 110. Ella Flippin carded a 112 and Olivia Huber shot a 113.

Munsen said in addition to the windy conditions, the Kernels struggled at Moccasin Creek. But will use the day as a teaching tool.

"You just take it and you move on," Munsen said. "There's always the next day and the next tournament and you look to improve in anyway that you can."

Up next, the Kernels will play in the Sioux Falls Lincoln Triangular on Tuesday at Prairie Green Golf Course.
