Columbia, MO – The Junior Girls Four State Championship was played at Country Club of Missouri last week, July 1-2. The Kansas Team comprised of Julia Misemer, Allison Comer, Libby Green, Lia Johnson, Victoria Klausner, and Brooke King and Captains Baile Stephenson and Audrey Meisch took home the win after three rounds of match play. The format was 18-holes of Four-Ball matches followed by 9-holes of Foursome matches (shortened due to weather), and 18-holes of singles matches.
Kansas got off to an early lead winning two of three Four-Ball matches. Kansas continued to lead after earning 2.5 of the 3 points available in their Foursome matches.
“We had a strong team dynamic which lead to great success in the team matches,” said captain Baile Stephenson, “I’m impressed by how well the girls worked together and cheered each other on.”
The team also faired well in their singles matches. Kansas battled back and forth with Nebraska for the final points on the board. Julia Misemer won her singles match over Nebraska’s Danica Badura and Lia Johnson tied her match with Nebraska’s Nicole Kolbas. Most impressively, Brooke King won her match over Ellie Braksiek. King was 2 down going into hole 13 and won 5 holes in a row to finish 3&1. Libby Green got off to a fast start after she was 5 up through 5 holes against Rylee Heryford. Green eventually won her match 2&1.
