Kernels finish fifth in Sioux Falls

SIOUX FALLS -- The Mitchell High School girls' golf team took fifth place in an 11-team field at the Warrior Invitational on Monday afternoon at Willow Run Golf Course.

SIOUX FALLS -- The Mitchell High School girls' golf team took fifth place in an 11-team field at the Warrior Invitational on Monday afternoon at Willow Run Golf Course.

The Kernels, who were led by sophomore Kristin Sabers' 11th-place individual finish, tied with Sioux Falls Lincoln with a score of 372. Mitchell finished fifth and Lincoln took sixth by way of a tie-breaker, which rewarded Mitchell because the Kernels' fifth-best individual finisher -- Kendra Cersosimo -- shot a 112, which was two strokes better than Lincoln's fifth-best finisher.

Sabers tied for 11th after shooting an 87, while freshman Macy Miller carded a 93 for Mitchell's next-best finish. Courtney Kirby shot a 95 and Angie Lorenzen carded a 97.

Mitchell coach Mark Horan said Lorenzen played one of her best rounds of the year, despite windy conditions.

"Everybody's scores were higher because of the wind, but Angie's score was lower than usual," Horan said. "I thought she had a really good day.

"The focus of this tournament is more on the team score, so we were able to medal with our fifth-place finish."

Yankton won the team competition with a score of 342, which was nine strokes better than second-place Brookings. Dani Selberg, of Brookings, took the individual crown with a score of 78, which was two strokes lower than Sioux Falls O'Gorman's Nadia Baka.

The Kernels host the Eastern South Dakota Conference Meet on Saturday at Lakeview Golf Course. The meet begins at 11 a.m.
