Schwefel, Snyder Lead Cooney Girls at 19-Team Oconomowoc Invitational

Madison Edgewood takes team title with Oregon’s McKenzie Parks shooting a one-over-par 71 for medalist honors Nineteen of the top high school golf teams from throughout southeastern and central Wisconsin competed Saturday in the 18-hole Oconomowoc Invitational at Rolling Hills, a 5,107-yard course on Oconomowoc’s north side. Madison Edgewood took top team honors with a sizzling 328 combined score to finish ahead of Homestead (336), Racine Prairie (343), and Arrowhead (346). Oconomowoc was 18th with an uncharacteristic 441. Four golfers broke 80 on the par 70 course, with Oregon senior McKenzie Parks and her 71 earning her medalist honors. Racine Prairie’s Sienna Chapman was only a stroke behind at 76, while Waukesha’s Emily Joers, a junior, was third with a 78. Joers won the WIAA state tournament championship as freshman and was second last year. Chapman, a sophomore, was fourth at state last year as she helped her team to the Division 2 team championship. Arrowhead’s Lauren Reeg finished (79) was fourth and Pius XI’s Emily Bliske (80) was fifth. Reeg, a sophomore, was only the fifth golfer on the strong Arrowhead team at one point earlier this year. Twent-six golfers finished with scores in the 80s and 21 turned in scores in the 90s. From a weather standpoint, it was not the best day for golf as intermittent rain, clouds, and temperatures in the 50s seem to affect the Cooney squad. Senior Hannah Schwefel (106) had the top finish for coach Jason Dahl‘s Oconomowoc team. Schwefel was followed by junior Sydney Snyder (107) sophomore Zoe Quinette (113), senior Allison Parra (115), and sophomore Allison Dahlke (116). Schwefel and...

Today’s round by Sydney was consistent. She really hit some nice shots and is starting to come around.” Dahl had praise for Allison Parra’s afternoon: “She has had some tough luck on a few holes in the past two matches. She will make a birdie, a par, and a couple of bogeys before the “big” number arrives. She’s making progress but has a nice swing.
