Class 2 State
BOLIVAR, Mo. – Ste. Genevieve senior Lani Yamnitz wrapped her high school golf career last week as a first-time Class 2 state qualifier.
Yamnitz finished tied for 32nd place among individuals on Tuesday after improving by four strokes during her second round at Silo Ridge.
She carded a 96 on day two to remain well within the upper half of the leaderboard but outside of the medalist cut after opening with a 100.
Marlene Edgeman of Marshfield shot even-par 72 in both rounds to claim the state championship by two shots over Emree Cameron of Nevada and 14 shots over third-place Hanna Maschloff of Osage.
Osage slipped collectively by 26 strokes after posting a dominant 350 in round one, but still secured the team title with plenty of cushion over runner-up Westminster Christian.
