Golfers takes fourth at Edgewood Course

West Fargo's Ashley Peterson tees off at the Fargo North Invitational last Wednesday at Edgewood Golf Course.

The West Fargo girls' golf team, led by junior Ashley Bixby, finished fourth out of 10 teams at the Fargo North Invitational at Edgewood Golf Course last Wednesday.

Bixby, in what West Fargo coach Dan Wolf called an "off day" for her, tied for fifth out of 56 competitors with a score of 88.

As a team, the Packers walked away from the course with a score of 405, bringing their season average to an even 400. Other counted scores for the Packers included Brittany Rheault with 103, Sierra Peterson with 105, Kennedy Kraft and Ashley Peterson, both of whom scored 109.

"To this point in the season, we seem to shoot roughly the same at every meet," Wolf said. "I've been very pleased with our consistency. We had a few good seniors who left last year, but we have had younger girls really step in."

The event was won by Fargo Davies, who had the top three golfers and a team score of 324. Fargo North and Grand Forks-Red River place second and third, respectively.

The invitational was a small-scale representation of the season so far, as the Packers are currently the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Dakota Conference, behind Davies, North, and Red River.

Bixby is also currently fourth in the conference, with an average score of 82.2.

The golf team's next event is the West Fargo Invitational at Village Green Golf Course in Moorhead on Tuesday morning.
