The Westfield Lady Golf team kicked off their season in a big way on Monday morning at the Bloomington Country Club. The team competed in the 15 team field with the likes of #1 ranked and defending state champion Evansville North Huskies, #4 ranked Columbus North, and #7 ranked Carmel. The team had a great day shooting a team score of 296, which was good enough to win the invitational by 16 strokes.
The team was led by sophomore sensation Jocelyn Bruch who had herself one of the best rounds ever in the entire history of high school golf. Bruch would break the women’s course record at Bloomington Country Club by posting a 62, which was an impressive 11 under par. Bruch would finish the day with four birdies on the front nine for a 33 and a remarkable five birdies and an eagle on the back nine for a 29. Bruch was sitting at nine under with the 18th hole to play and hit her drive to the left fairway and then followed that with a fairway wood that took her just short of the elevated green. She then walked up to take a look at the green before settling on her shot choice, took a couple practice swings and then dropped it in for eagle to finish the day.
Following Bruch in scoring was Cailyn Henderson with a 77, Adrienne Montalone with a 78, Margaret Wentz 79 and Emma Clary 84. Natalie Shupe and Grace Snyder also competed as individuals and shot a 82 and 91 respectively.
The ladies will be competing again Tuesday at Stoney Creek in Noblesville at the HSE invitational and then Wednesday at the Zionsville Invitational.
