The final round of the Junior Girls Four State Championship wrapped up on Tuesday with Nebraska taking the 2014 Junior Girls Four-State Golf Championship after being led by Haley Thiele, who had four birdies in her final round. That was enough to earn her Medalist honors for the championship with a total of 140 for both days (par 72). However, Nebraska’s Megan Vetrovsky also made a difference for Nebraska in round two as she bettered her first round score by nine shots.
Right behind Thiele all day, was Missouri’s Emily Goldenstein (144) who finished the front nine at -1, but had a bogey on the par five 14th. Another bogey on 16 was followed by a birdie on the 18th to finish at even par 72 for both days. Taylor Hayes (151) was three over at the turn today, but played even on the back to improve her second round score by one with a 75. Sun Young Jung (152) shot another 76, while Shannon Gould (160) improved her final round score by two shots, carding a 79. Madison Frerking (160) finished her round with a score of 81.
Missouri met teams from Kansas, Iowa and Nebraska at The Preserve on Rathbun Lake in Moravia, IA during June 23-24th. The format consisted of individual stroke play each day with the four low scores of each team added each day and totaled after the final round to determine the winner. The medalist is determined by the low two day total score. Missouri has won twelve titles since inception of this event in 1969 and is the defending Four State Junior Girls Champion.
