Ally Tiedemann headlined the Pirates placing third as an individual.

    The Crookston Pirates girls’ golf team was supposed to host their season-opener. Instead, weather put their season on hold until April 27, where they opened up the season at Bemidji. The team came prepared and walked away with a third place finish out of 20 schools.

    “The girls hadn’t even played a hole up until that point,” Head Coach Jeff Perreault said. “It was a pretty challenging course and the wind was blowing at times. We were very satisfied that everyone finished and now we have an idea of what to work on. We’re happy with our score, but we know we can do better. We’ll need to be in that 330 range.”

    Ally Tiedemann led Crookston shooting a 79 which earned her third place as an individual.

    “Ally is very consistent and a very experienced golfer,” Perreault said. “We expect a low score each time and she did that. She tied for second and lost the scorecard tiebreaker, but when she tees up she goes for first place.”

    Every other golfer either stayed consistent or improved their score from the front to back nine.

    Joslyn Leach combined for a 94 and Dani Boyle was six strokes behind at 100. Hannah Street shot a 108, Bailey Cameron finished with 118 and Sophia Rezac completed the Pirates score with 121.

    The Pirates will look to continue their hot start when they host their first meet of the season on Tuesday, May 1 at 9:30 a.m.
