Cardinal junior Virginia Travers saved her best round for the most important time of the season.
Travers carded a career-best 87 to finish tied for 11th at the Division II district tournament at Tam O’Shanter Golf Course in Canton on Tuesday.
“Districts was a really cool experience,” Travers said. “I got to play at a very nice course and being there really pushed me to do the best that I could do. That 87 was actually a career-low for me, which was awesome.”
Travers opened the 18-hole round with a 42 on the front nine. She finished with a 45.
“My driver was probably my best club,” she said. “I was hitting it straight down the fairway and getting it right where I needed it to be for my next shot. I was only three strokes away from making it to state so that shows me that I have a shot next year.”
The top three teams and top three individuals qualified for next week’s state tournament.
Beamount senior Erin Adams shot an 84 to earn the third individual berth to state.
Her strong performance at districts has Travers eager to prepare for next year and another run at the state tournament.
“I just have to keep working at my game and making sure I don't have any blowup holes,” she said. “If I can eliminate those I think I have a shot next year.”
