Nicole Vossen at State Class AA Golf

Sophomore, Nicole Vossen represented Kimball Eden Valley Watkins Girls Golf at the Class AA Minnesota State High School Golf State Tournament Tuesday and Wednesday, June 11-12, held at Ridges of Sand Creek in Jordan, Minn. Nicole shot an 18-hole score of 88 (43-45) in the first round of play. This is Nicole’s first State tournament appearance and she played well despite her nerves. The second round of play began with a rain delay for both boys and girls. After waiting five hours, the committee W-Nicole-3decided to play only 9 holes, making the tournament a 27-hole event. The boys teed off the back nine, while the girls played difficult and very tight back nine. Nicole finished the day with a respectable 45, with a final score of 133 placing her 43 of 88 participants. Vossen had a great experience and she looks forward to trying again next year.
