For the first time this season, Brookfield's golfers managed to defeat a pesky Father Tolton foe led by one of the elite golfers in the area, Haleigh Berrey. On Wednesday in Salisbury, Brookfield's Laken Sattman was just two strokes behind her.
Brookfield defeated Tolton by three strokes, 400 to 403, for the 10-team Salisbury Tournament title. In addition to Sattman's runner-up position at 89 strokes, Demi Downey and Ally Jackman were also in the top five, tying for fifth with 96 strokes on the 18-hole course.
"(The Berrey girls) were at Kirksville, then they moved to Tolton, so we've had a hard time escaping them," Brookfield coach Angie Downey said. "The girls were thrilled to win that one, it was a lot of fun."
The next afternoon, Brookfield hosted Putnam County and Salisbury, and once again bested its opponents. Brookfield shot a 204 as a team, 19 strokes better than Putnam and 25 better than Salisbury. In the muggy Thursday afternoon home stand, Sattman and Downey finished their nine holes in 46 strokes, six better than anyone else on the links. Ally Jackman shot a 55, and Quinsey Lane finished in 58 strokes. Hannah Matheney rounded out the day with a round of 63.
The Bulldog golfers will hit the links next on Monday in La Plata.
