Pace places 69th in state women’s golfPublished 1:23pm Tuesday, November 6, 2012
Polk County’s Yancy Pace qualified for the state championship in women’s golf and finished the tournament 69th.
Women’s golf coach Ty Stott said Pace is just the third Wolverine women’s golfer to make it to the state
championship in his 10 years of coaching. Former students Mary Hemphill and Kate Jansen did so before Pace.
“(Pace) was one of only 14 players to qualify for individual spots from the western part of the state in 1A/2A classification,” Stott said.
Pace, a senior, averaged a 57 on nine holes for the season then shot a 102 at the regional tournament at Meadowbrook to qualify for the state tournament, held at Pinehurst.
