Things didn’t turn out as well as she would have liked, but Hillsboro sophomore Kristin Jamieson still wound tying for 34th place out of 72 golfers Saturday at the 2016 Girls Division I OHSAA State Golf Championship in Columbus.
Due to inclement weather on Friday, the event at The Ohio State University Gray Golf Course was shortened from the 36-hole event that was supposed to be played Friday and Saturday to an 18-hole event on Saturday.
Jamieson shot 41 on the front nine and 43 on the back nine to card an 84.
Abby Kiefer of Dublin Jerome and Madison Butler of Medina Highland both shot 71 for the low scores. Catherine Wang of Solon had the high score with a 99.
“I’m very proud of Kristin and the way she handled herself at the state tournament. Other coaches commented that she seemed very mature for a sophomore playing at the state for the first time,” Hillsboro coach Dave Hilliard said. “I know she is disappointed that she did not play as well as she did during her practice round, but she earned her way there and represented herself and her school very well.”
Later in the weekend Jamieson got a bit of a consolation prize when was named the Division I 2016 All-Southeast District Player of the Year.
In addition, Hilliard was named Division I 2016 All-Southeast District Coach of the Year.
Two other Hillsboro girls – Emily Loudin and Hannah Rumpke – were named to the All-Southeast District first team.
They were not the only Highland Countians on the team.
Named to the girls Division II All-SE District second team was McClain senior Veronica Olaker; while McClain senior Chantrell Landrum and Fairfield sophomore Rachel Schuler were named honorable mention.
McClain sophomore Trevor Newkirk was named honorable mention on the Division II All-SE District boys team.
