Summit girls golf wins Bend Invite

The Storm shoot a 323 to top Bend High's 363 on Monday in Bend

Summit’s Madison Odiorne is a special player, according to Summit coach Jerry Hackenbruck, one that comes around “once in a career.”

The Storm sophomore fired a 1-over-par 73 at the Bend Invitational girls golf tournament on Monday to claim medalist honors and lead Summit to a team win with an overall score of 323 at Bend Golf & Country Club.

“Summit just showed their incredible depth and talent of their team. ...” Bend High coach Lowell Norby said. “They’re just so deep and good.”

Summit’s Sarah Heinly joined her teammate in the top three, carding an 80 to take second overall, two strokes ahead of Bend’s Heidi Froelich. Megan Mitchell recorded an 84 for the Storm, and Madi Mansberger finished with an 86 to round out the top five.

“It was one of our best efforts,” Hackenbruck said. “We’re really continuing to improve and play real consistent golf.”

Madeline Rice’s sixth-place 88, combined with Froelich’s performance, helped the Lava Bears take second as a team in the four-team standings with a 363.

“A 363 on that course would win a lot of times in a lot of years or be closer to winning,” Norby said. “But when you’ve got a team that shoots in the 320s or lower consistently,” he adds with a laugh, “you just tip your hat.”

Hermiston was third with a 411, followed by a 445 by Crook County, which saw Chelsea Shank tie for ninth in the 31-golfer standings with a 94.

Other Central Oregon top finishers included Madras’ Lauren Simmons (96) and Mountain View’s Ellen Nopp (100).
